I've been running on a Ceton Infinitv 4 for about 1.5 years now. Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit, time warner cable, and cisco tuning adapter. The PC I'm running on is a Core 2 Duo, Abit IP35 Pro motherboard, 4 gigs of ram. I've had problems off and on forever with the tuning adapter. I think some of my problems were due to a weak cable signal, which I think time warner finally has that fixed good enough for now.
That leaves me with the problem where randomly when I wake my HTPC from sleep mode the cisco tuning adapter flashes 6 times and I cannot tune any of the encrypted cable channels. For a long time when that was happening typically I would reboot my HTPC and that usually would resolve the issue(which sucks to have to do that). Recently I discovered if I just unplug the USB cable from the tuning adapter and plug it back in, it starts working again.
Ceton had posted on their site a windows 7 "hot fix" to fix USB disconnect issues, I installed that a while ago, I'm unclear if that helped or not, but I'm definitely still having issues.
Anyone else run into this? Is this just a known issue with Cisco tuning adapters? Any suggestions on things to try / do?
I've been thinking about building a new HTPC for a while now, not sure if the USB controller on my motherboard could be what's causing me issues? If I built a shiny new HTPC and this still happened I would be very frustrated.
