MP2 Product Manager
- May 16, 2008
Using devcon.exe (Build 10.0.10240.16399) I am able to disable and subsequently reenable the eHome entry in the Device Manager. Doing this while the IR receiver is functional leads to the remote first not working and then operating again. Unfortunately applying the same to a non-operational IR after resume does not reestablish the functionality.Try´d to restart the eHome Receiver with Devcon
I have been playing extensively with all energy settings etc. of the device and the USB hubs.Just a suggestion, but sometimes going into Windows power settings, advanced, and changing the 'USB selective suspend' setting can help with devices not working after resume.
The problem must lie deeper within the system. It is very strange though that the remote 2.4G wireless keyboard, which uses its own receiver is not affected by the standby/resume cycles. The issue must therefore be with the eHome device management of Windows.
