Hey, I'm trying to report that the issue has recurred. Sorry I forgot about the original thread, but you could have at least left the new post visible in this thread.
Good thing I was able to hit the back arrow to retrieve what I wrote. Had I closed the browser, I doubt that would have been possible.
Here is what I wrote today:
For the past several days, every time we turn the TV on in the morning, Windows Media Center has shown up in a small window covering only part of the screen, as if someone had clicked on the "Restore Down" button, the middle button in the top right corner.
We of course watch TV with WMC in full-screen mode, and we leave it that way when we turn off the TV at night. The HTPC stays on 24/7; we don't put it to sleep.
The only recent change to our WMC system is that, two months ago, we switched from the Rovi program guide to Schedules Direct with EPG123. The "restore down" issue started sporadically soon after that but has lately become an almost daily occurrence. I'm wondering if it could have something to do with EPG123 updating the guide, which it's scheduled to do at 4 AM.
This is not A Big Deal, but the wife finds it annoying and so it affects WAF.
I'll be happy to provide more info if you need it to pinpoint the problem. Any ideas what might be going on, any troubleshooting steps we could take? The less drastic the measures, the better.
(Mods: feel free to move this thread to the EPG123 subforum if you think it will fit better over there.)
ADDITION: To address what IT Troll wrote upthread, no -- we have not updated the video driver in ages. Will try disabling the EPG123 update and see if it makes a difference. Anything else we might try?
