    Hi all,



    I have got my system to work fine during the past weeks. However I have noticed a weird behaviour when the pc comes back from standby. When I set my media center to stand by (using the mce remote) while watching tv and then wake it up (again using remote) the floppydtv dvb-s tuner stops working. I assumed this was an initialization issue but even after a restart it still remains not functional. I have to shutdown the computer, wait for a while and then turn it back on. Then everything goes back to normal.

    Is this a bug or something I missed in the configuration?
    Thanks

    the new versions of TVServer has a delay option, this stops TVServer finding your card for a preselected amount of time, giving drivers a chance to reinitialise (also needs to be enabled powerscheduler).

    I have something similar happening with my hauppauge T500 dvb-t, at the moment I am testing different scenarios, ie using the power button\standby in mp's hompage GUI and occassionally just remote.

    Have you found when this happens, you cannot enter tvservers config as well.
