Ok i m running into a very bizzar problem on the Media PC, heres a summary of what happened.
the Sunday night just been:
Set everything up sweet as, ran into troubles as i have posted in this post http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=83&TopicId=24566
I got that sorted out everything was working fine.
got home from work and thought i'd turn the tv on:
"unable to start time shift: no free card" error, after stuffing about for a lil while i found i needed to installed the Hauppauge drivers again. So i did, watched tv happily for the rest of the night.
Got home turn the media pc on and i get a blank screen. tryed changing channels and the channel list was blank. so i reinstalled all WinTV programs, IR program, powercinema etc, re scanned channels and it worked sweet. i even restarted it 3 times to make sure it was working before i turned it off for the last time to goto sleep.
what do you know, turn on media PC and its "forgotten" i have installed the driver again. i had to reinstall the driver and now its working.
