    While watching live tv in media center there are momentary stutter type
    pauses. They happen very frequently. I have a pretty good capture card and a
    ton of ram. I have fast drives and a 3gh cpu so there are none of the usual
    slow downs present. I'm just wondering if anyone else sees this and if so,
    can it be fixed?

  3. Check the settings in the BIOS. Disable all that processor power safe stuff
    like AMD quiet or so.

    I don't have an AMD processor. I am running a P4 3.0 with 2.5gb ram, 2 fast
    hard drives and a capable video card with its own ram. I tried to post that
    new drivers did not affect the stutter and I did notice that it was worse
    when doing things like unzipping large files or large downloaded files being
    transfered from the windows default download directory to the directory i

    What tv tuner card do you have?
    And what motherboard do you have?

    Is your tv tuner card sharing IRQs with anything else on your system? You
    may want to try changing the slot that the tv tuner card is in...

    I have no idea about the mother board. It is a Dell prebuilt computer but I
    know it have a very fast FSB. As for the capture card, it is a Hauppague
    Video PVR-150.
