    Playback delay, is this normal?

      I'm a brand spankin' new Premiere Pro user and I have a really basic question that I couldn't find an answer to after hours of searching.

      Is it normal to have a 1/2 second delay between when I hit play (L key) and when the video starts playing? I'm used to having immediate playback in other NLE's I've used. Is this normal?

      I've tested this with just regular DV files on three different systems in both XP and Vista. The systems range from 3.4Ghz P4 with 1 GB RAM to 2.4GHz C2D with 2 GB RAM.

      Thanks in advance for anyone willing to throw me a bone.
