My fault - partly. I downgraded to 1.3.29 because with the
later versions I with VIACCESS-encyrpted channels errors
cVideoRepacker: skipped 720 bytes while syncing on next picture
(someone reported the same with Premiere)

After your replay I gave 1.3.34 another try - but I did increase
in transfer.c the TRANSFERBUFSIZE to 4 MB.

That solved both problems. No more cVideoRepacker - Errors
and the benefit of better initializing the CAM.
Might be others who have the cVideoRepacker - error might
give this modification a try to see whether it's just luck
or really helps

Thanks & regards
