It *should* but I did that first. Removed the card and all the video  
sources, and started anew. No good. Then I cleaned up the zap2it and  
removed the video sources and capture card, truncated the table, and  
started from scratch if you will. Now it works flawlessly again. And,  
yea, sorry bout all the top posting, it's a bad habit.
