good to know : )
Thanks all, for your knowledge and advice. One more latency question: in my
BIOS, I can set the PCI latency. It's set to 32 by default; I set it to 64
a while ago, I think in an attempt to fix some video card / TV-capture
related issue. How does that number tie into the jack/ardour latency situation?
