    Dori:

    Here's an update on that situation -

    AJA Plug-in’s Update

    Customer Support identified an issue with the AJA plug-in’s and posted a new set to the Knowledge Base on Wednesday, July 20th. The new plug in’s were to correct an issue with "Legend Audio Communications Error, Hardware Under run" errors that customers could experience when scrubbing audio.  

     Update:  Customers have reported that the new plug-in’s do not fix the issue so the Knowledge Base article has been removed until we can identify the issue and secure new plug-in’s. The article removed is http://avid.force.com/pkb/LegacySearch?DocId=410971

    Avid Customer Support is working with engineering to secure new plug-ins to correct this problem. Once the correct plugins are released, we will reinstate the knowledge base article.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
