HTDM (host-TDM) uses your computer cpu for its processing power and also as it is htdm it will not show it usage in the cpu meter! so i would say you are probably at the top of your available cpu processing power and that's why you are getting eror messages.

HTDM plug-ins (Stream Manager) are limited to using one single DSP chip -- if the chip becomes full.. even if you have more available chips... will not be able to instantiate any more HTDM plug-ins. In System Usage if the Stream Manager is full... you can't add any more HTDM plug-ins.
