I'm capturing with an iomega buz.  I'm capturing at dropframe rate
(29.9fps), at decimation 2.... when I bump it up to decimation 1 (full
frame capture) then things start going south.

Some stupid math ( 30fps * 720w * 480h * 24bpp * ( 1B / 8b ) ) gives
me 38MBs with no compression.  I'm using 40% jpeg compression which
should cut that down by way more than half.

Bottom line, maybe its the drivers.  I'd try it in windows, but I
don't have an extra box right now.  Thats why I'm trolling for tips.
