How much memory does ESXI use before installing a VM, same with CPU I guess. I'm tempted to go down this route as my combined Server 2012 R2 with essentials Role and then VM'd server 2012 R2 with exchange is causing some problems with DVB-S feeds and I wondered if splitting them off using a bare metal hypervisor might give a better...

Hi there, I would suggest you check/swap the PSU. Sometimes you can have a fault with the 5V feed. Have you got another PSU you can test with? J.

A snapshot method would be more reliable and useful for MediaPortal. You could calibrate in settings. by Toggling display on then off then on again as directed by configuration. I was hoping you would have a simple piece of code that could be used in c# console. eg. I could run the code when tv on + off and look for a difference...

Yes MePo is a lot more powerful and has more features than openelec (XBMC) There is no Mediaportal front end for openelec. Openelec is XBMC + Linux operating system. Mediaportal uses windows operating system.

Try using the MP Audio render (instead of reclock) and set it up as per the wiki it may help somewhat http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_MEDIAPORTAL_1/141_Configuration/MediaPortal_Configuration/9_Codecs_and_Renderer/3_MP_Audio_Renderer_(MPAR)/Configuration

if your System RAM + Video RAM > 4GB then definitely go for 64bit. Otherwise it's user choice, I'd still go with 64bit.

Made some progress. The office PC was not using the MP client credentials, instead it logged on as guest (although the guest account is off). I had to delete the credentials to force a new request for credentials. Now I have two additional accounts for network access on the MP server, one MP client to allow read access and one MP...

It's a not supported configuration. And the footprint isn't smaller anyway.... The embedded flavour is just designed for people who create some kind of machine with fixed hardware and only running fixed software.

Hi Hafblade. Very good point, I thought that it was simply windows resuming from sleep that made hard drives spin up. I shall test tonight with the side of my PC taken off.

off-topic, but I really hate CCC. From CCC 11.11+ onwards, my setting for overscan does not stick after a standby (let alone a reboot). So, I have been staying with 11.11.

Well I uninstalled VMware and rebooted. The high execution times I'm still seeing with ndis.sys and netbt.sys seem to be caused by Iron Portable (although I don't know why it wasn't causing them previously) but don't seem to make the latency unacceptably high, so I'm not too worried about those. However, when starting TV the first...

I've reset the FSB to 200 now and Standby works, but my PC still doesn't ever go to Standby/Hibernate automatically.

Yeah, I migrated to Win7 fairly recently, mainly for gaming and so I could use more than 4GB. I think I would have stuck with XP if I could have, as there's quite a few annoyances in Win7 (like Explorer doing weird things when clicking on folders) but it's not too bad and I'm getting used to it.

The reason why I suggested RAMdisk for timeshifting is that people have reported stuttering on their Live-TV when using both SSD and HDD, but that's gone away with the RAMdrive. But it's just a suggestion if you don't have this stuttering it's not needed. And you can always pick up one of these: OCZ Z-Drive R4 1.6TB PCIe 2.0 x8...

Hi there, Off the top of my head, the only two ways way I can think of are: Is to ensure the OS/BIOS is configured to wake on any packet to the network card.
