    hi guys and gals,

    i wouldn't if anyone could point me to a reason for this:

    after my MCE extender has been on for about 20 - 30 minutes it hangs - it just freezes up. i order for it to work again i have to reboot it. the xbox guide button still works but nothing else.

    i thought it may be something to do with transcode360 - so i shut down itys streaming services and uninstalled it. I couldn't get it to work correctly anyway so it its no great loss.

    any ideas?

    Gary

    Do you have power saving set to 20 mins on your PC or network card?

    Some dodgy network drivers default to power save mode unless you tell them otherwise!

    i've just checked it and it was set to allow the OS to shut it down. So i've disabled it. only time will tell. Thanks for the tip.

    The connection is wired.
