I am getting ever so slight jerky playback on captured footage. I have a 1394B PCI firewire card here:
I use a 4-6 pin Firewire lead from my Sony Handycam DV to the PCI card. The jerkyness is hard to notice but hurts your eyes after a while. It becomes really evident though when footage includes panning or a lot of motion.
Is it something it to do with having a B card rather than an A card?
I also read something about wireless network cards causing slow down from overusing ports, however I've tried disabling it in System/Devices.
Strangely enough I used to use this camera on a laptop with a Cardbus capture card and it worked fine, however it now gives 'ridiculously' jerky capture on this. It also does this on another laptop that it used to work fine on. This made me think it was the camera. However i now tried a different Sony camera and i get the same problem. I have also eliminated a faulty firewire cable from the equation. Needless to say I AM PULLING MY HAIR OUT OVER THIS ONE.
