RBT has VT3 with the latest patches on a windows 2000 computer. While doing a live show, audio will suddenly stop coming out and the levels on the audio mixer stop showing any input signals. However, we can patch the audio around the toaster and it is still good. Audio is not restored until we reboot the machine.

We are a college tv station and some previous members suggested the actual card was getting hot and would then kill the audio.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

There were known "audio popping problems" related to insufficient cooling, but that is easily diagnosed and cured. Open the case and run a fan directly on the card while you run a simulated live show. If the audio issues go away, you know you need more cooling, if not, there is something else going on (sorry to be so obvious ;) )
