Hello folks... I have been using a Hauppauge HVR-900 USB DVB-T receiver for a couple of years now, first with Windows Vista then Windows 7. I am now using the latest drivers from the UK site and all works fine...

Except that if the HTPC is left on for some time Media Center will report "No tuners" when I try to watch live TV. A reboot fixes this, but I wonder if the driver somehow faults during the day and Windows loses the device until the next reboot.

Anyone seen this? I don't use sleep or hibernate on this PC and it's generally only used for Media Center or the odd iTunes movie rental.

I haven't checked the USB power savings feature but will do it soon - it was a cause of problems with Windows Mobile sync over USB in the old days, you never know.

Ok, unchecked all the power management so the HTPC won't power down USB devices if idle. Let's see how it goes today. But still keen on getting any other comments.
