[mythtv-users] Suspending a MythTV Box with a Hauppauge PVR-500

I want to be able to put my Ubuntu MythTV box to sleep with 
the /etc/acpi/sleep.sh script, which performs a suspend-to-ram operation, 
enabling a very fast wake-up of my MythTV machine.

It works, with one exception: after wake-up from suspend-to-ram, the Hauppauge 
PVR-500 TV card no longer works. There are still /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 
under /dev, but they seem to not provide any video 
output; "mplayer /dev/video0" exits complaining that no codec is available, 
for example. This also happens after a suspend-to-disk operation.

If I turn off the computer and restart it, the TV card works again. In short, 
the Hauppauge PVR-500 card doesn't seem to be supported by the suspend 

However, I'm completely satisfied if the TV card can simply be reset once the 
computer has resumed. I don't need something fancy such as being able to 
suspend the computer in the middle of a MythTV playback.

Can someone help me with the necessary steps required to reset the cards or 
otherwise make them reappear after a suspend-to-ram or suspend-to-disk
