    Hi - I have a problem with the standby in MCE2005. I found of after hours of
    testing that if I start MCE and did nok use live tv the ehrecvr.exe file vil
    not start and then my pc will go into standby just fine after 20 minutes.


    If i watch live tv and push the stop button to stop live tv feed, then the
    ehrecvr.exe file will still run and use around 5-15 % cpu time. When the
    ehrecvr.exe file is running the pc will never go into standby. When i close
    mce og start again the ehrecvr.exe file is not running and so the system goes
    fine into standby.

    So my conclusion is that the ehrecvr.exe file is preventing the system to go
    into standby even so the livetv is stopped...

    Are there a work around for this - someone?

    I guess this might be a software issue that should be looked at by Microsoft.

    Can someone confirm to me that they have the same issue so that we can get
    MS to look at this?

    MS - please help me!!!

    Best regards
