Hi All,

I currently have Vista Home Premium with 32 Bit and I'm having issues with no sound after resuming from S3 sleep. There is no Red X over the volume icon that I have read in other forums and the only way to get sound again is to re-boot the PC and this is really annoying when I'm half way through a recording.

I have Soundmax on my machine and cannot see anything on the internet about appropriate drivers for Vista 32 or updated drivers, however I do have SP1 running and I bought the machine 6 months ago, so it's pretty recent.

Any help with this appreciated.

Regards

Graham

    It will be the realtek audio drivers need reinstalling, did you get a utilities disk, if not download the latest from them Realtek

    Or uninstall and see if Windows update will reinstall for you.

    But if you can get your motherboard name\model even better to download from them

    Ya I'd update the realtek rXXX drivers... if you're using HDMI (which I think you are) install that driver set also after the others. Also you can try a program called MCE StandBy Tool... it fixed most of my sleep problems.

    Hi Paranoid Delusion,

    Once again, thanks for your help - much appreciated.

    I will try what you have suggested tonight and let you know how it went - a see another post confirming what you have suggested.

    Thanks again.

    Regards

    Hi Drealit,

    Thanks for your response - appreciated.

    I see another post suggesting the same thing, so I will try that tonight. Yes, I have HDMI via a DVI feed and a separate feed for audio through my soundcard.

    Since going to Version 1 final and running my EPG load from Windows Task Scheduler, I have not had to use MCE Standby Tool and waking from sleep has been fine. To be more specific, I was running a "bat" file through the command line of Powerscheduler to load the EPG and Windows shut it down before it was complete which stuffed up my recording settings and therefore I had recording issues. If I still have issues though after loading the driver, I will look at MCEStandby Tool, however what you guys have suggested sounds hopeful.

    Thanks Again.

    Regards

    Graham

    Hey All,

    I went to the properties of the Soundmax drivers, disabled them and then re-enabled them again which then gave me sound, so at least that means I do not have to re-boot the machine and loose any active recordings.

    Still have not tried reinstalling the drivers yet as the machine has been tied up each night ..... oh, well at least the wife is enjoying the media centre :p

    Cheers

    Graham

    Thanks @CyberSimian! I delved deeper into this issue and especially the "Silent Stream Bug" you mentioned. I downloaded different pieces of software that claimed to do like you said: keeping the DA-convertors "alive" by sending a non-audible signal periodically. Turned out this was NOT the thing happening in my AV-receiver. While...

    Sorry, I'm busy at work the week (and most often the weekend) and even work on the weekend or late, I didn't finish what I have to do !!! So this is not good! That's good news, you have found a lead that can trigger the issue. It's needed to analyze this, it seems that this option is disabled on my HTPC, but need to confirm it :)
