Thank you very much Alex :)

I was getting an error with this command:
> systcl hw.snd.vpc_autoreset=0
but it was a typo on my part, it sysctl not systcl :)

Also, the first time I had put
sysctl hw.snd.vpc_autoreset=0 in /etc/sysctl.conf
and there should have been no sysctl call :)  but I have fixed this.

The instructions you have provided do the job and it is working on 2
out of 2 machines (8.2 amd 64 machines).  I am a very happy camper!
