That wouldn't surprise me. Some more testing and some of the glitches are in 
the stream, some don't appear to be but maybe be due to background operations 
I'm doing on the machine right now, though its with SD material so I don't 
know why that would matter. I'll keep looking and try and narrow down the 
issues where the recorded stream is ok.

I also need to see if those glitches occur when not running through firewire 
to see if its just the firewire output. This scenario wouldn't surprise me, 
as I'm also trying to figure out why it will only output a data stream on one 
of its ports, and sometimes it swaps which port it is. Funny thing is, it 
doesn't care for channel changes...
