Snow

I know this is not directly related to CU, but since it does affect my
ability to use CU I feel justified in asking this question here. :-)

My 840AV has begun 'scrambling' all video input from both the s-video
and composite input ports. Complete trash. I called Apple and they were,
big suprise, of no use whatsoever.

I have re-installed QT 2.0, but that didn't help (thanks alot for THAT
suggestion Apple Tech Support). Also trashed various prefs files, but no
go.

I have tested the output of my VCR and camera with another source and
they both
work fine.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have had the same problem after a crash and eventually noticed this in
the readme file! :-)

"However note that some Macs some times wind up showing only
"snow" in the local video window (and transmitting it). If that
happens, you must POWER OFF and start up to get the Spigot to reset;
just Restart will not do it."
