Everything working except Imovie/Quicktime video

Hi everyone. I have everything working after many hours of troubleshooting including ethernet, video with QE/CI, sound and pretty much everything else. I used the Boris installer for my x1800xt Sapphire 256MB which works with the VGA running at 1920x1200, however, I'm having a big problem with IMovie and Quicktime video playback. When I play video from either of these apps it either doesn't display any video and has vertical lines, or, there is a Red hue throughout the entire picture.


In esscence, the main reason I built this system was to get better video editing performance than my G4 mini which is a dog at times. Here are my specs:



JAS 10.4.6 running with AMD patches with SSE3 only

Boris installer for Video, forecedeth for Nforce LAN


AMD Athlon 64 3500+ on a Gigabyte GA-K8N sli

Sapphire x1800xt 256MB

1 GB (2x512) Kensington PC3200

Nforce 4 mobo, LAN, etc..


Any ideas out there? I have searched the boards throuroughly but no luck. If I can't run IMovie it pretty much defeats the purpose of building a homebrew for me. I don't want to go out and purchase a new mac.


I'm thinking perhaps it's related to the video driver but not sure.


Thanks in advance.

My problem is getting message "Something is wrong with the plugin "whatever" x". close the pop-up and another one follows, over and over...Also the preview in my DV camcorder is all screwed up but it captures fine and plays back fine.
