    I just did a fresh install of Tiger on my 1ghz emac with 768 mb ram...the computer is singing...."like butter" but here's the thing...i have a daily show multipass and the last two episodes that i have downloaded are really choppy in full screen..i have tried restarting and closing every app but itunes and have the same thing

    the weird thing is that when i stream tv shows from my other computer they play fine....anyone have an idea of what i can do to fix it?

    btw they play fine in the default small window, this is just affecting full screen

    i'm sorry to say but i'm pretty sure it's your emac. There was an article on MacRumors about widespread emac video failures recently, i'll try to find you the link...

    EDIT: this is it, though your problems sound a little different:here

    EDIT 2x: here's the MR link

    Thanks for the links and the legwork but I am pretty sure that is not the problem....it's not systemic and it's not distorted....it's more what you would expect streaming video to look like, where it chokes about every second
