Re: Time delay
- Hi Randal et al,
I'm having the same problem with my mac running either OSX or XP (mine
dual boots via bootcamp).
My delays are not quite as long but I still get cut off. I can confirm
this by listening to my local system. I loose about the last 4 or 5
sylables of my transmissions.
Any ideas anyone?
