    Opps, no in that context I was referring to a CAM, the I'm just using the tuner part of the TBS 5881 (no CAM installed and the only tuner on this PC) .
    I took your advice as referring to the tuner.(y)

    Fine thanks, hopefully the same for you.

    Just wanted to update everyone:- Since I disabled the USB selective suspend setting the problem has become much more intermittent, it can run problem free for several days then freeze up several times in a couple of hours, though interestingly the BSODs and endlessly rotating dots on boot have not yet reappeared. To avoid the problem I am currently leaving the tuner disconnected from the usb and only plugging it in when required, which perhaps is more along the lines of its intended use but if anyone has any other ideas please let me know. I am now running only MP2 on this PC.

    Try a different USB tuner?

    (There are very cheap generic DVB-T tuner sticks around on Ebay, and if you need a cheap but good DVB-T2 stick see this post from me - Help! MP2 - DVB-T Not recognised (DRIVERS?) )

    I think I can live with it for the time being and in the medium term replace it with a PCIe tuner in the summer when I plan to upgrade this PC. The 5881 is only a stopgap replacement for an old PCI tuner (no DVBT2 support) after it, the 5881 that is, could no longer be used on my laptop (portable antenna was just not good enough after the switch over to DVBT2). Progress:rolleyes:
