Hi all!

Hope someone can help me solve my interesting CU-SeeMe problem...

Since using CU, I have been getting VERY slow video reception, but VERY FAST
video transmission. I'm looking for some suggestions to correct this.

My System:
PowerMac 7100/66AV
H.320 Nubus CODEC card
Ethernet to T1 connection using MacTCP/IP
CU v.83b2 with 10MB allocated
Panasonic color camera

1). I have a suspicion that it may have something to do with the H.320 CODEC
card I have installed (I use it for Quicktime Conferencing)...it compresses
my video and shoots it quickly out...but incoming video is uncompressed and
hence takes longer to come to my mac over busy ethernet lines.

2). I have tried adjusting my transmission and reception settings to just
about EVERY combination available. But would love to hear suggestions! It
seems that adjusting transmission to 10/20/20 and reception to 5/100 works
best, but is still LOUSY! HELP!

Thanks all!
