I'm thinking it may be a SQL access speed issue. increasing the HD
buffers don't seem to fix it, and it only seems to be an issue with
recordings. I also notice that if you rewind and play that section
again it will be fine, so it's not the recording in any specific way.
I'm wondering if you were to decrease your available memory if the
pauses will get longer. I'm currently thinking of maxing my backend
motherboard to 4GB (I'm at 3 now) and see what that does to my minor
stutter. My parents system has a slightly worse stutter, only 2GB of
ram, want to try increasing theirs as well and see if that helps.
I'd guess there is some code inefficiency somewhere that may help as
well, but I wouldn't know where to start to try and debug something
