HD-PVR Experience

Just wanted to pass this along incase it might help someone else.

I have been using my HDPVR with Sage for a very long time 2 years maybe. It has been 99.9 percent reliable. I would get a lockup maybe once every 6 months. Basically it just works and works well. This old server was Windows 7 and using the HDPVR driver version is old.

However, this past weekend I built a new Sage Server (i7,etc) and started having lockups with my HDPVR. The new server is also Windows 7. I checked the driver that Windows installed for the HDPVR and it was the latest version...1.5.7 I believe. Several times a day, it would lock up...either during a recording...or when attempting to start a new recording.

I decided to put the older driver back...and it has been 100% since. I recorded tons of shows the last 2 days..and it is back to how was before.

As a side note, when I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 last year...I remember the exact same issue...Windows installed the latest driver...which gave me problems....and had to revert to it has been perfect the last year on that version.

Now I don't record 5.1 from the HDPVR...but thought someone having issues might want to try the older driver version just to see if it helps. The fact that this is a brand new Sage Server with new cpu/memory/motherboard/etc...seems strange how the latest driver still gave me issues.

Just wanted to pass along in case it might help others.
