Your USB InfiniTV card is probably set to stay powered up when the PC goes to sleep.
Yep, too many variables to keep track of. I'm no EE nor an expert on motherboard circuitry, but I have been through every setting I could find within the BIOS and in Windows 7 to shut off any and all power-saving options for the USB ports, don't know how sleep mode affects the PCIe slots.
Most times when coming out of sleep mode (remote is set to start Live TV automatically, idea is to make it as close to an appliance as possible) with the prior firmware I would receive "No tuners available" errors for the first minute or 2, then it would tune into the channel. I figure this is more of a problem with the TA than the Ceton, but don't know how to determine that as fact so I may be missing something.
On a side note, since upgrading to the latest - at the time - 295.73 nVidia drivers I am again occasionally seeing the flashing during darker scenes even after applying the changes noted in http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/archi...t-1243210.html
, which worked for the prior version of the drivers. I see there is a newer nVidia driver version available, I'll try that before reverting back to 285.62. Just an FYI for those using nVidia GPUs (I have a GeForce 210)
