> the video and audio is out of sync on the external NTSC monitor.
Do you mean when both are played on the external monitor? Or with video externally and audio from the PC? In the latter case it is normal. If the first, I never heard about that problem.
That's an SD deck, which means SD output. Current troubles not withstanding, I'd recommend putting the CRT back in place. It'll offer a better representation of the video signal than an LCD can.
I guess it's more accurate to say that there is a dramatic delay in the video between what I'm seeing in the playback window on my computer monitor and what I'm seeing on the external NTSC monitor. The audio does not have that delay, so on the external monitor the audio and video are out of sync. It makes it difficult to show anyone what you're working on, which is what the "client" monitor is supposed to do.
Use an audio mixer or preamp to monitor from the deck's audio outputs instead of the computer's.
> there is a dramatic delay in the video
What is dramatic? 0.1 second or 30 seconds or even 15 minutes?
Disable desktop previewing while you are using the external monitor. There will still be a slight delay between A/V, but you can also route the audio to the external monitor if that is a problem.
You could try using the msdv.sys from an earlier version of Windows.
This was an issue I had in PremPro 2 resolved by using msdv.sys from sp1. VERSION 5.1.2600.0 (XPClient.010817-1148)
FWIW - the delay in my case was 17 frames.
I have never had the issue in CS3
