Has anyone figured out this issue? I am having the same problem. I have tried the same settings as described above and my recordings are still jerky (quick pauses during recording). I am trying to record streaming video and watching the video in my browser does not show any jerkiness. However, in the Debut window, I can see the pauses as they happen and during playback of the recorded video the jerkiness is still there. As my browser plays the videos without any issue, I have to assume it is a setting in Debut. I am running on AC power with an Intel Cor i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz and 8GB RAM Please help!
