    Just wondered what other people's experiences are with their tuners as I've been living with missed recordings on a fairly frequent basis.

    Would be useful to know what brand of tuner you've got in your system, how many, whether it's a dual tuner,PCI or PCIe and what level of standby you use (S3) etc. etc.

    I'm using 1 x Hauppage dual PCI tuner with the PC setup for S3 standby.

    I'm using Vista, which has reduced quite a few of the problems. My PC is a Dell P4D 920, 1GB RAM and a Nova-T-500.

    If you haven't tried already, get the latest drivers from the Hauppauge forums, and disable the IR component of the Nova-t-500 card if you're not using it.

    Never got this with two Avermedia PCI cards.

    I do occasionally lose all my channels every 2 months or so and have to re-do the guide setup.

    Over the last year I did get some kind of file corruption once which wiped out my preferences.
