    Hi all,

    I'm hoping you'll help me out. I have an Elonex Artisan LXH which I got about 2 months ago. The problem is that I'm not finding it very stable. It needs rebooting about once every two days to resolve problems like:

    • Failing to resume from standby
    • Crashing when starting My TV or My Music etc.
    • Failing to pick up a TV signal
    • Failing to play DVDs

    I was kind of hoping the MCE would "just work" other than a few virus checks etc.

    How stable does everyone else find MCE? Better than mine or about the same?

    Cheers,

    James

    I've had an Advent DHE2000 (which may have the same internals... certainly looks similar from the outside) for a few weeks now and the only problem I've occasionally had is that after the screensaver kicks in I sometimes don't get the picture back when I start using it again. I've disabled the screensaver and not had the problem since.

    If I were you I'd investigate getting it exchanged. Although it's a PC inside the box you bought it as a media appliance - if a DVD player or video recorder did the same you'd take it back and demand an exchange so I'd do the same for this.

    Cheers,
    Tez.
