Hi All,

I'm having troubles with scheduled recordings in that the system never wakes up to record - it's totally lazy!

It's set up for S3 and S1 in the BIOS and it goes into standby with no issues and wakes up via the remote... however, it refuses to wake up at all for scheduled recordings - this happened with my last TV card as well (Hauppauge TD-500). Everything else is perfect: does anybody have any ideas?

I'm a developer by profession so I wrote a small C++ application to listen for the power broadcast messages and then create a waitable timer to wake the machine up 2 minutes later... it worked perfectly from both the power button and the Mediaportal shutdown process so I know that, in principle, my machine should be able to wake up to record.

Regards,
Colbsure

I spoke too soon. It seems I will need a new video card as when I look at refresh rates in the PC's display section it only goes up to 30Hz I will try the SPDIF delay on the TV - maybe that will help. Unless there is another possible solution Neil
