All seems ok in windows, the pc will run for days if just left on the windows desktop. It quiet happily records scheduled programs, downloads the guide and is stable BUT.
As soon as I hit that green button, its just a matter of time till my system freezes completely. It doesnt matter if I leave it on the MCE start screen or watch LiveTV, it locks the whole pc after a random period of time. The longest its lasted before getting stuck is about 3 hours, but it has crashed within 5 mins before. I have to power the system off/on to get working again. Nothing is recorded in the event log.
P4 3.0GHZ HT CPU
Intel D865GLC Motherboard
1GB Kingston DDR400 Ram (2x512MB in dual channel)
1x160GB HD (OS/Music/Pictures/Page file)
1x250GB HD (TV Recording/LiveTV Buffer)
2xHappauge Nova-T PCI DVB-T Tuners
Geforce 6600 Graphics card connected via DVI to LG RZ-42PX11 PlasmaTV @ 1080i 50hz.
Nvidia Purevideo decoder (185 version)
MCE has all the updates installed from windows update, including rollup2, the little patch and the recently released Rollup. I have also installed the latest driver versions for the TV tuners but its still the same (dont think its those anyway as recording works fine).
I have tried assorted graphics card drivers, motherboard chipset drivers with no success.
Any Ideas, short of a complete re-install.
Edit to add, I also have an xbox360 as an extender which seems to work fine. I watched several recorded shows without problem from it.
