[mythtv-users] Basic suspend/restore issues

Hi Ed, others!

I also would like to set up my mythtv-box to use suspend-to-ram/-disk  
for faster startup times (you know the WAF? : "we used to have a  
simple tv ... switch on and watch ... why does it take so much time  
to start??")

Can you direct me to a good howto or something? I have a via epia  
MII. Is that board capable of doing s-t-r?

Thanks for your help,
