AE here. I'm having an issue with one of our machines suddenly dropping frames when trying to playback from the timeline.

Our media is on an XSan server.
All media is in Prores 422 Proxy and the timeline is set to Prores 422 Proxy
Even if I turn off the dropped frame error message, the lag is too bad, no one can work in that bay. Was fine a week ago.
I've restarted the machine.
Deleted render files.
Switched internal scratch disks.
Switched from Safe RT to Unlimited RT.
Turned off external video.
Changed video playback settings.
Used Blackmagic Disk Speed Test on the media server, speeds are good.
Ran Onyx's maintenance utilities on the machine.
The problem persists, in any project I open, regardless of which user is signed into the machine. Those same projects play fine in our other bays, which have their Final Cut's set up identically.
