Windows 7: IR Remote Wake UP After Sleep

IR Remote Wake UP After Sleep

I am hoping someone can answer this very annoying problem I am having.
First let describe what I have. I am using a Dell laptop, with Windows 7 64 bit and Media Center to record and watch TV. I have a Plextor Mini Digital HDTV receiver (PX-HDTV500U). My laptop is connected to a HD TV through a HDMI port on the laptop. The remote that came with the Plextor receiver I never could get working so I bought one. The remote works great. No problems with that. My problem is whenever I wake the PC, either with the remote or the power button on the laptop, and Media Center starts, I have no TV signal. Media Center starts on the recorded tv screen. I hit the live tv button and it says, Please Wait searching for tuners. But it never finds one. Or it will search with the spinning circle and come back with a
"No TV Signal There is currently no TV signal detected for this channel. The channel may be temporarily off the air, or you may need to adjust or reconnect your TV antenna."
It does this every time. I have tried everything I can think of. I have to unplug the Plextor receiver from the USB port and plug it back in to get it working. It does this no matter which one of the 3 USB ports I use. Driving me crazy. Please help.

I just wanted to let everyone know the latest on this. I could find nothing on the internet about what to do to fix this. I am really impatient and quickly tired of everything. So, I made a trip to my local Bestbuy and bought a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 950Q. I downloaded the latest driver for it after hooking it up.

Very glad to say that I can now put my laptop to sleep and wake it with no problems locating a TV signal. Amazing how something so small can make you so happy.

After much searching for help with the Plextor and trying everything I could think of, I came to the conclusion it was because the driver was too old to be compatible with Windows 7. They don't update these anymore since it has been discontinued.

Oh well. I figured there had to be a reason I got it so cheap. LOL

I have a dvico tuner and remote and this solved my problem A USB device may no longer work correctly after Windows Vista resumes from sleep or from hibernation Step 1: Determine the specific USB host controller Click Start, type devmgmt.msc in the Start Search box, and then click devmgmt.msc in the Programs list. On the View menu, click Devices by connection. Expand the processor node. For example, expand ACPI Multiprocessor PC. Note The node names in this procedure vary depending on the hardware. Expand Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System. Expand PCI Bus. Several USB host controllers will be listed. Expand each USB host controller node, and then expand successive subnodes until you find the name of the device that is failing. For example, the device entry may resemble the following: ACPI Multiprocessor PC\Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System\PCI Bus\Intel(R) ICH8 Family USB Universal Host Controller - 2830\USB Root Hub\fingerprint reader Notes The fingerprint reader is typically listed as a biometric device. The specific USB host controller should not be used to control any externally available USB ports. For example, only internal integrated USB devices should be listed under the USB Root Hub node for the specific USB host controller. When you have located the device, right-click the associated USB host controller, and then click Properties. In the example that is listed in step 1.f, right-click Intel(R) ICH8 Family USB Universal Host Controller - 2830, and then click Properties. Click the Details tab. Select Driver key in the list. The driver key will resemble the following. Note the last four digits of this driver key. {36fc9e60-c465-11cf-8056-444553540000}\0002 Step 2: Add the ForceHCResetOnResume registry value for the USB host controller Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in the Programs list. Locate and then click registry subkeys that resemble the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\Four-digit_number Notes In this step, Four-digit_number is a placeholder for the USB devices in the system. In this step, you must locate the registry subkey by using the value that you noted in Step 1.j. For example, if the driver key from Step 1.j is {36fc9e60-c465-11cf-8056-444553540000}\0002, then you must look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0002 On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. Type ForceHCResetOnResume for the name of the DWORD, and then press ENTER. Right-click ForceHCResetOnResume, and then click Modify. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK. Exit Registry Editor. Restart the computer.

Set it to hibernate instead of sleep. I think hibernate will solve this problem. I have to use hibernate so one of my hard drives will work. If i use sleep the hard drive will be missing.
