Well, what firmware version are you running on the PCIe InfiniTV?
I have the Infinitv USB, Motorola MTR700 TA. W7 64-bit on an old Asus M2NPV-VM with Athlon X2 4600+, 2Gb RAM.
I took a path similar to jim2100's and rafisher79's- Fresh reinstall of W7 64-bit, applied no Windows updates (did apply Cumulative WMC update from Feb 2010). I then applied the latest Ceton drivers from the website, prior to the reinstall I had applied the beta firmware linked to by Eric in a prior page of this thread hoping that it would resolve the spontaneous reboots.
I still experience the reboots, typically once or twice a day. I am not currently using this setup to record shows, only for watching live TV in the evenings, but I check the uptime of the Infinitv daily. It will reboot (according to the Diagnostics option in WMC) whether the system is in sleep mode or actively providing output during live TV. I have yet to come up with any specific pattern, it seems completely random. When it is working I have very infrequent macroblocking as noted in prior posts in this thread, other than that and the reboots the setup works very well.
It would be nice if Ceton would provide a listing of prior firmware locations (something jim2100 mentioned already) so I could experiment with those to see if the problem persists in different versions. On that note, does anyone have such a list?
Other than the question about the firmware versions I guess I just posted a "Me too" to the thread, apologies for that. Wanted to get some data points out there, see if any pattern emerges.
