Hmm. I thought as long as you *didn't* use QT 2.0 you were fine. At least
that's what the SuperMac/Radius guys told me. Ah, I found a previous message
that confirms this. See below. Maybe if all you PowerMac/Spigot users

The Tuner is only one of several patches that attempt to fix bugs in QT
2.0. ScreenPlay was doing fine Tuner or no, in passing through video,
doing framegrabs, but not for QT encoding. It encodes fine using QT 1.6.1
so it seems QT 2.0 is the culprit (as the necessity of patches would
