    I haven't had too many problems with it really - aside from the god-awful bundled apps which I don't use anyway. I haven't had sleep mode working due to the rubbish nVidia drivers so it's possible i've just not seen the problem (yet) that you mention. I need to update various drivers and give sleep another go really. I know there's a new set of drivers in beta atm (for the Nova-T) with a full release due soon. I've seen some updated USB drivers from them indicating fixes for S3 mode too.

    If I could get the box to succesfully wake I could easily write a small program to reboot the system just after it resumed to get round and initialisation problems - atm the nvidia card doesn't come back from sleep (black screen) so i can't see anything lol!

    well my search is over - i just installed the windows XP drivers for my kworld DVB-T300U in HomePremium x32, and windows media centre is doing the rest - got more channels by some odd turn of events too.

    great!!

    How sure are you that it's the NVidia causing the problem? I narrowed my won't-wake-from-sleep problems down to overclocking the memory a single MHz above it's stock 400 MHz, and there are many other possible causes such as low 5V rail on the PSU. Vista x64 btw.

    Pretty darn sure - it's a known nVidia issue (black screen on resume) for the drivers i'm using (Vista32). Everything is running at stock, everything is brand new and i've got a good quality PSU
    I need to spend some time playing with newer drivers and using the event viewer to diagnose things (Vista's event viewer is stunningly good) further. ATM it's just on all the time which is isn't ideal but it's reliable.

    I have the T-500 with Vistax64 too - it works flawlessly - it even installed itself without any need to use CD's etc.

    Highly recommended.

    RavenNight - you say yours works better in Media Centre than with the bundled software. Mine works fine with the bundled software but it's a pain so I want to get it working in MC. However it asks me to select my provider from about 5 including one that says "unlinked" or similar, and firstly I don't know which to select, secondly it doesn't have the one that the freeview website says would be strongest in my area, and thirdly it doesn't find any channels. Am I doing something wrong as I'd far prefer to use MC for the TV than this Compro stuff?
