Thanks for your help,

Yes, I can believe it! In the past, with EUMETCast, we have sometimes found that Intel processors (and chipsets) to better than AMD in certain circumstances, although it's been difficult (if not impossible) to tie such circumstances down. Similarly, some systems seem to cause problems.

It would therefore be interesting to see a comparison between your working and non-working systems:

- processor
- memory
- motherboard
- chipset
- memory
- disk size and connection
- network connection
- operating system
- DVB connection
- CPU load
- memory load

and anything else you can think of!
