thanks for your suggestions. I eventually figured out that it was the
USB drive I had unslung to that was causing the problem. It must have
been disrupting the traffic going to my Topfield, because once I used
a different USB mass storage storage device, all was fine.
Also, thanks for the MPEG streamclip, but I think that's for Windoze
only. I evicted Bill Gates from my household over two years ago, and
he ain't coming back in! :)
