    I will test this later, but I just have a few comments for now.

    1. I have experienced the 6KB files before, I cannot confirm if they are related to hibernate, I tried hibernate a few times before, but found some problems with it and stopped using it, it may have been this 6KB file issue, but I can't remember.

    2. Yesterday I recorded a fotball game, it was devided into 3 recordings, first half, studio, second half. Before it was finished recording the second half, I tried to view the first half. This resultet in a total freeze of MP, and since I run MP in DX Exclusive mode I have to reset the computer. When I came back in, I could watch the first half, and studio recording. The second half is not listed in "recorded tv". If I look at the Harddisk where it is stored, the second half is there, a 4 GB file. But no player is able to playback the file.

    Have this behaviour with the 2 Nova-S+ too
    Recording 1+3 are correct, recording 2+4 are 6 kb

    The Test-PC (Twinhan DTV DVB-S and Nova SE2) shows the same behaviour, with one difference. Recording 1-3 (done by the Nova SE2) are correct, recording 4 (done by the Twinhan) is only 6 kb.

    I will try to reproduce this, but I just need to confirm something

    1.add 10 recordings to schedule
    is this on the same channel? right after each other? normal epg programming or manual, can I setup 10 different 5 minute manual recording just to test?

    2.complete Windows shutdown
    I turn off mediaportal and computer manually ?

    5.MediaPortal entered hibernate
    Is this a feature in mediaportal, or just the normal windows hibernate, is it the same with suspend2ram ?

    6.MediaPortal recorded 10 shows with everytime hibernate/resume. no interference through user

    Is mediaportal/PC hibernating in between shows ?

    Testplan: resume from hibernate

    preparations:
    1. PowerScheduler: IDLE time 3minutes
    2. Autostart MediaPortal on Windows-start
    3. Schedule at least 10 recordings each on a different channel. the time between 2 recordings must be long enought to force MediaPortal to hibernate the PC. -> ~15Minutes should work
    4. shut down the PC
    5. start the PC

    The Testcycle (what MediaPortal is doing):
    1. Windows starts
    2. autostart -> MediaPortal starts
    3. MediaPortal is running
    4. after 3minutes IDLE MediaPortal hibernates the PC
    5. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #1
    6. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    7. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #2
    8. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    9. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    10. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #3
    11. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    12. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    13. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #4
    14. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    15. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    16. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #5
    17. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    18. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    19. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #6
    20. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    21. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    22. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #7
    23. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    24. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    25. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #8
    26. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    27. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    28. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #9
    29. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    30. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE
    31. PC is resuming from hibernate to start Scheduled recording #10
    32. MediaPortal is switching the channel and starts to record
    33. scheduled recording has finished -> MediaPortal hibernates PC after 3minutes IDLE

    Testresult: (thats what is needed for the reply)

    Check the recorded files. Have a look at the filesize and test if you can play them.
    If you get a crash or 6KB files export all logs with the testtool and attach them to your reply.

    scheduled recording #1: worked | did not work: (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #2: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #3: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #4: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #5: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #6: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #7: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #8: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)
    scheduled recording #9: worked | did not work (result is a 6KB file)

    OK, I've set up powerscheduler and some recordings on MP.
    (running mp via remote desktop over dsl line isn't easy)

    I will see how this works, and try to do a better test tomorrow.

    I think you can confirm this bug. I added 10 shows today, I didn't follow your guide exactly, I didn't change channel every time, and I cannot confirm it went into hibernation every time, but I know for sure it did several of the 10 times. If you need I will set up a better test tomorrow with channel change every time.

    My test result was as follows:

    1. recording ok (this started before any hibernation)
    2. recording ok
    3. recording 6kb
    4. recording 6kb
    5 recording ok
    6. recording 6kb
    7. recording ok
    8 recording 6kb
    9. recording ok
    10 recording ok
