I'm using a Genpix Skywalker-2 in an AMD X2 based PC with DVBDream 1.7a (latest version as of this posting)
This is all in a HTPC based machine, meaning it goes to sleep on a regular basis, and powers on automatically for recordings, etc.
The problem is once the computer wakes up from sleep, DVBDream will show no signal, and changing channels does nothing. Only solution is to close DVBDream and then re-open it. Only closing, and re-oping the application will resolve the zero-signal problem.
I currently have an AutoHotKey script set to run on wake, which will close DVBDream and re-open automatically, still not the solution I would like.
I have contacted Genpix and explained my situation, and this was his response:
I'm hoping this could be easily implemented into the softwareRel has to make the "work-around", it's his program not mine.
PC sleep/wake-up support has to be supported in the software (not the driver). Driver works fine after PC wake-up. It's just software has no clue that state of the DVB-s card has changed after wake-up (software has to react properly).
