I have the following:
Dell Dimension E520 with the following upgrades from new:
Q6600 Quad Core 2.4MHz CPU
4GB 667MHz RAM
It has the following add-ins:
XFX HD4350 Graphics card
AverMedia PCI-hybrid TV tuner digital terrestrial, FM radio etc
An extra 500GB HD along with the standard 160GB HD that came with the system, both SATA 7200rpm
I have also upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate which I love.
I expected to have no stutter issues when recording HDTV - you see I upgraded from a Pentium D 3 GHZ CPU to this setup, upgraded the RAM and, on the advice of Ascent (who are generally great) bought the video card and tuner card. With the Pentium D I of course did have such stutter issues, but that was expected.
However, I still do have those issues, using the AverMedia built in recorder. I will try some other recorders and see but this is somewhat frustrating.
Is there anything you can see that stands out as being the problem here? I recorded to the PC's HD not through the network to a NAS or anything.
I think I have provided all the specs that are relevant, apologies if I have not. Any ideas/hints/suggestions most welcome
