say browsing the web while a tape is capturing...
Please don't do this. Get another computer if you must surf the web while your tapes are capturing.
If your machine is supposed to be capturing, let it do that. Otherwise you greatly increase the chance of dropped frames and all kinds of other problems, such as your warning dialogs not being accessible.
what's the point of having 8 cores if you can't multi-task? capturing tape isn't taxing whatsoever especially capturing to a RAID, and for the past couple years i've had very few issues with capturing hdv and doing other things at the same time, other than losing dialogue boxes and the occasional bad tape.
and if apple would hurry up and release a net book i'd love to get another computer to "surf the web on"
what I'm mostly looking for is a way to either use terminal or the activity monitor to find and kill whatever dialogue box is causing me the grief.
