I have a UMAX SuperMac with a Sonbet G3 350 card in it and a new DP G4 /450. I have iTunes on each and the visuals on the G3 are MUCH smoother. The G4 gives me a second or two of smoothness and then skips twice, repeating this pattern endlessly.

Does the Soundjam extension being installed along with the iTunes extensions have anything to do with the skipping? VM is on with both machines, but I found that it runs beter with it on anyway. The G3 is using an ATI Nexus 32mb card on a PCI, and the G4 is using the Radeon BTO.

Any ideas folks? Thanks....

answer to my own question: the Soundjam extension does make a difference. If you have it enabled then disable it.

If someone has already posted this answer elsewhere in the forum then my apologies for repeating it.

Cheers!

Correction part II: Okay, the real problem is not with the Soundjam extension - it works fine with both SJ and iTunes extensions. The problem is with MacPoet being opened. I don't even have to be connected to the internet to get the stutter, whereas I initially thought that there may have been some problem with buffering from the internet.

Anybody else have this?

PPoE software stinks period. I haven't heard anyone say they like it at all. It drove me to get a DSL router.

A router, huh? Can you give me some more info about that? Like: does it make a connection faster, less crash-prone (although I don't really have that problem), is it expensive, etc...
