Windows 7: win7 driver sleep issue

08 Dec 2009   #1

win7 driver sleep issue

Hi all, I am having a problem with windows 7 Home premium. I have a PC with 3 ATI TV Wonder HD 600 USB ATSC tuners installed.

Everything works great, I can record three shows at once, with no issues on them, the problem comes when I let the PC sleep or hibernate. When it wakes from sleep - only one of the three tuners will work. I can go in and see that the signal strength on two of the tuners is showing red, while one shows green. If I reboot, they all show green in the signal strength and will work again.

I have tried plugging them into different USB hubs, problem persists.

I have tried the ATI drivers for the ATI USB 600 cards, and have tried the diamonmm drivers for the cards, and both still have the same issue. I have tried updating the vidoe drivers on my PC for the video card and problem persists.

I would really like the PC to go to sleep, but at this point it appears it will need to be on 24/7 in order to record with any reliability.

Has anyone else seen this issue? any resolution? any suggestions?

I also have a problem with sleep sometimes. I have a nostromo game controller that works after sleep but the program does not reload so I cannot change profiles.

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit

I had the same problem with my USB tuner, and fixed it by buying a PCI tuner. No one really had a solution for the USB sleep issue. Even modifying my PC Power settings wouldn't help.

There was a registry hack for XP/VISTA that was supposed to fix it (enabled a hardware reset of the USB controller when the PC woke up) but it didn't work for me either.
