I'm having a few odd issues with my new HTPC build. Specs are
asus p8z68-v pro
8gb of memory
asus nvidia geforce 610
windows 7 ultimate
i'm using windows media center and I've got the cable tv coming into it just fine. I have the HTPC hooked up with an HDMI cable to my Denon x4000 and that is hooked up to a samsung 55'' LCD. I'm controlling the whole thing with a Harmony One remote
the HTPC obviously remains powered on all the time but the issue i'm getting arises from when I go to power all of my other devices back on with the harmony remote. several times it has happened where I've hit the 'Watch TV' activity and it powers on my receiver and TV but for some reason windows media center tells me it can't play the TV feed because there is no audio device. sure enough if I look in the system tray, the speaker icon shows no device. I either have to reset the computer or unplug the hdmi cable and plug it back in to get it to detect again. has anyone else seen behavior like this? any ideas on how to fix it? there have also been some other random intermittent issues when turning my receiver and tv back on. sometimes the tuner won't be found or windows media player will throw some error about a video file format not being playable. this is all when trying to just watch regular cable tv through the infinitv.
any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm really enjoying the HTPC with windows media center, but right now it just feels a little flaky and not 100% predictable and stable
