CASE: HIPER HMC-1S53A
MOTHERBOARD: Intel D945GCLF2
CPU: ATOM 330
RAM: 2 GB
HDD: Maxtor 250 GB
TUNER CARD: Hauppauge HVR-1300
REMOTE CONTROL: Hauppauge silver

R6.02 installed from scratch ran flawlessy at first boot.
Kernel 2.6.28 natively supports my Tuner card but have some problem in managing the S-Video PAL output. Patch for s-video problem has been introduced in 2.6.34 but since starting from kernel 2.6.30 Tuners HVR-1300, HVR-3000 and HVR-4000 no longer work I prefer to have VGA to PAL converter to get the video out to my old TV.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/+b ... mments=all reports the HVR support updates.

Quite weird but it seems working so far
DG945GCLF2 always had problems with suspend to RAM, one every 5 resumes it fails.
To avoid that I tried installing pm-utils and pm-quirks from ArchLinux repository. The pm-hibernate was the only option that had a successful resume (as the shipped pm-utils indeed) no way to get success with pm-suspend and pm-hybrid so I decided to revert back to the old pm-utils was shipped with LinHES 6.03 while I left installed pm-quirks. I don't know why but now pm-suspend works as expected and after 20 resumes hasn't hanged yet.
...
After almost 2 weeks hanged again better than before though.
Hoping to find a solution.

I did a reinstall on 6.03 and had to manually add some options to the kernel line in grub to get it to boot. When I tried Ubuntu or Debian with or without the same options the cd would not boot for Ubuntu. Debian would boot from cd and install, but not boot aftwards.

These are the options that the LinHES installer uses, but not add after the install.
disablemodules=agpart,intel_agp
