Did you lower the latency of your fireface compared to the past?
What video material do you play back (codec)? Is it the codec you usually use?
Perhaps the option “Boost Video” in the video device panel is a Workaround (But could make it worse too )
Is you project big? Does it charge your system to its capacity?
Did you update to 5.5 recently?
If none of my questions is answered with “yes”, than there must be something wrong with your firewire latency… The IRQ sharing could be an indication.
