Has anyone any experience of using the osprey-440 quad PCI-X quad capture 
card. We are just building a new single node system using one of these.

The good news is that vic recognised the 4 streams without a problem but 
the bad news is it has a tendancy to crash the machine when starting 4 
videoproducer services at the same time (its usually fine if you enable 
the services manually one at a time).

I'm currently supecting a thread safety issue in the windows card driver 
(we are using a dual opteron system but a 32-bit version of XP)
