    I'm doing some offsite programming on a MacBook Pro with built in NVIDIA graphics in Bootcamp and a .NET. The preview of one zone looks smooth but it bogs down as I add more zones. I need 6 zones, and the display is slow and jerky. I already turned off enhanced reality, and laser output.

    Anyone know any tricks for adjusting graphics settings to try to get better preview performance?

    Try not to run system - in a system - in a system ...
    Those emulation features are not so good as they might look to be.
    LD system is quite complex and needs promt response directly from the network, system and graphics. Not emulated in Bootcamp.
    Get a real XP system and it will work like a charm. :D

    Boot camp runs natively on an Intel Mac, so I think the issue is more about the graphics card in the laptop. But you are right, I have a PC in the studio. I'm going to try reducing the color depth to see if that helps.
