This has worked for my work PC:

Don't turn it off for holidays.

It appears that the blue smoke, which runs your machine, gets mad to you if the machine is off for too long, and then leaves your computer when you turn it on next time.

A computer consumes quite a bit of power if it's on. This is a) expensive, and b) environmentally not very friendly. So I'd prefer to turn my computer off when I leave for a longer trip...

My Mediamaster seems to have done the same thing. So much for the the evening's football games...

I assume that the problem is related to the software upgrade they were offering a while back, since HTV has apparently stopped distributing it last month.

This one product has pretty much destroyed Nokia's reputation in my eyes. The combination of abysmal engineering, even worse usability and total lack of quality control is quite stunning.

Yup, you're right. Apparently there's a big problem with the 1.1.1 SW update.

It's a good thing the media boxes are engineered by different guys with different processes in different places than the phones...

I think if we all take the boxes back, they'll probably get the hint. Oh, if I could only get my hands on the QA person...
