I was wondering what the status is of anyone running the r5000 with Windows 7 x64?
I had been running 4 units with SageTV in WinXP for 4/5 years with almost no issues, r5000 v3.0c and using the proxy. But now I upgraded my server to Win7 64-bit and have had nothing but problems. I did change the motherboard to a Supermicro X9DRL-IF with Dual Xeon E5 2620 and 16GB Ram and am now using the latest v3.1d software. I'm using the Motorola DSR with Starchoice.
I have 2 issues:
1st Major issue is that when 4 recordings are scheduled to start the same time, not all channel changes make it through, 1 or 2 may work, but the others will either get only a few digits (1 or 2 of the 3 sent), or even the completely wrong digits, which I find really strange. If one recording is scheduled it works fine, if I do 2, one will fail about 50% of the time. I've tried adding a IR pre-code delay and varying the times for each unit, makes no difference, or is even worse.
The 2nd issue is an annoyance, and that is at about the 2 or 3 second mark in each recording, it now gets garbled for 1 or 2 seconds, I didn't have this before. But I do remember having this problem on XP when I tried upgrading to v3.1d, which is one reason I reverted back.
So I'm wondering if this could be a hardware problem with the onboard USB or some other conflict specific to my hardware/64-bit/r5000? Or if there is something software wise I'm missing?
On an aside, I find Sagetv through my HD200/300's not as responsive more/longer spinning circles now.
