You don't say what particular PPC you are using Mike, but I remember some
time back reading something about a similar problem with the Macintosh
7500. It was in reference to Apple's Quicktime Conferencing, but I believe
that it was also relevant to CU-SeeMe. I have lost the reference now, but
I believe it was something to do with a problem with the Operating System
which would be fixed in due course.

I do remember that we had no success at the time using the boss's 7500 for
Apple's Quicktime Conferencing or CU-SeeMe, but we haven't gotten around to
checking it out again recently since he upgraded his OS to 7.5.5.

If I were you I'd upgrade my OS and you may find the problem goes away. No
promises, but let us all know how you go!
