Most people around here will tell you these kinds of problems are why 
you don't even bother with framegrabbers in the first place.  Pick up an 
old PVR-150 or -500.  Or pick up a new HVR-2250.  Or if you require USB, 
get a PVR-USB2 or HVR-1950.  Get a proper hardware mpeg encoder, and 
avoid these issues all together.
