This may sound a dumb question, but I have only just started using Media Centre to watch & record TV. I want to record something starting at 3 a.m. Can I put my PC into "sleep" mode, or do I have to leave it switched on? If "on", does it have to have Media Centre showing, or can I leave it on Desktop?
Sorry if this sounds obvious to everyone else!
I can access and use Media Centre TV via mouse or the genuine MC Remote.
EDIT: I have just tried to open & view a recorded Programme, I get this message concerning it: "Your media usage rights have become corrupted or are no longer valid. This might happen if you have replaced hardware components in your computer."
I have NOT Replaced any hardware components since installing & setting up my TV card, which is A Hauppauge Nova - TD - 500a DVB-t Tuner.
Now I am really baffled! Help please?
