I've done dual 640x480 x 30 fps x 24 bit uncompressed streams on a Dell
Precision Workstation 330 and Precision Workstation 530 using Osprey-500
DV cards under Windows XP Beta 2.

I've also done two 320x240 streams off 1394 on the Dell Precision
Workstation 530 and am working on getting 640x480 capable 1394 drivers
to perform this test.

I am trying the different BIOS's available from DELL
on a DELL Precision 420 DUAL 800Mhz, 300Mhz RDRAM, Matrox G-400.
I gotta get this thing working with more than two cameras....

May the force be with me...

We're happy with the Supermicro motherboards; we have the D6DBE I htink 
(something-DBE anyway). However, speaking of Dell motherboards -- has 
anyone who's had trouble with them tried the BIOS tweaks/updates that
recommended by Hauppuage?

(Can you borrow one or get one on eval to test?)
