Thanks. I can live with the 29/59 issue (for a while), but it is annoying.
I thought switching to a HDHR Prime would not only let me save a few bucks on my cable bill, but hopefully work better than the Moto DVR which was always missing recordings or some other nonsense.
Although I gained recording space, I basically exchanged issues with different issues.
I have to levae my system running 24/7 due to the freezing after waking from hibernation issue, or else the whole night of recordings gets missed.
Btw, I'm wondering if there is confusion here between sleeping and hibernating? Sleeping I believe just puts the machine in a lower power mode, while hibernating practacaly turns the machine off.
Waking from sleep takes no time at all, while waking from hibernating takes 3-5 seconds, at least on my machine. From Microsoft:
Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power.
When I click START/SLEEP, I think my PC hibernates, not sleeps!
It powers down, the power light blinks, the fans and hard drives stop spinning.
Btw, my resume from sleep/hibernation issue started after I installed a PCIx video card (Radeon) for it's HDMI output. I'm using two monitors, a PC monitor connected to the on-board video, and an HDTV connected to the HDMI card. I tried disabling the on-board video but that didn't help. My issue must be in the driver for the HDMI card but I need HDMI.
