Hi guys

A time ago, when for exemple arrive at home and MP is recording schedule program, after a wake up , and I want to launch MP for see TV or listen music, when I power on my TV, I get a black screen (I would like to see my xp desktop). I can reset my pc and when start up all ok but this is a bad solution because I lost part of my recording.
If I wait for end recording, my PC go to suspend. Then after my PC suspend I power on the PC and TV and then all work fine, I get to see my XP desktop and launch MP without any problem.

See General Configuration attached

Anybody have a similar issue?

Thanks in advance

    Could you post a MediaPortal.log that shows up the automatic wakeup and then you trying to use the MP after that.

    hmm... I didn't see any S4/S3 events in the log. Did the PC go into suspend / hibernate state during the log timespan?

    First, thanks for you fast response

    Sorry tourettes but I can´t translate timespan? What´s timespan?

    Have you see the log part of yesterday same hour? I´ve powersheduler set to suspend pc after 5 min in Tvserver and MP configuration and works fine for me. The problem is when I want to power on my tv after PC wake up for start a sheduler recording. If I wait for final recording and next suspend, I can power on my TV without problems.

    I hope explain me
