I've been using CU on Macs and PCs. I have heard recently that there may
be problems using some PCI video capture cards in PCs with PCI chipsets,
specifically the new Pentium Pro. Details are sketchy, but here's what I
have so far...

Pentium PCI Chipsets

Neptune- Difficulty digitizing images larger that 320X200
Triton- No known problems
Triton2- No known problems at this time

Pentium Pro PCI Chipsets
Orion- Can only digitize very small black and white images (< 128 X 96)
Mars- Should fix problems currently with the Orion chipset (but not yet
released)

Anyone have any info on this problem?

Thanks ---
