[vdr] Re: No power-off after installing nvram-wakeup
sorry for answering a bit late,
but I tried hard to get it running the whole weekend...

No I didn't

The problem was that the system found no hdd in the BIOS.
Playing around means that I tried some different setups to get it running again.

I did that.

With the rescue system the system didn't turn off, too.
But I found the solution -
in the BIOS one can load "Optimized Defaults"
I did that - and - with these settings the system turns power off again. :-))

I bought this MB because it's in the list (No. 31).
But unfortunately it doesn't work with these settings.
(Maybe another BIOS-Version ?)
If I use nvram-wakeup compiled with MB=31 to read out the settings
all (or nearly all) Values turn out with 00
So I tried the procedure with guess...
I recompiled nvram-wakeup and it reads out the right values, but...
after a reboot the Date-Value adress? is wrong
i.e.: before reboot - Date: 26 (0xD1)
after reboot - Date: 26 (0xD5)
and the checksum is differnt then, too.

I hope you will do once more!
