I have unchecked the option to start the FE automatically if the
machine is powered on manually because this makes MythWelcome crash
when I exit the frontend again. That may or may not be related.
Waking up for recordings works so far, only there is no way to start
the Frontend from Mythwelcome if I start the MythBox manually.

Well, I am stopping lirc and mythbackend and unloading all the DVB
modules before hibernate, other wise it would not work at all. I can
not confirm what Ma wrote that mytfrontend would not react to lirc
being restarted, might be different with the lirc_imon module, which I
do not use for the remote (yet).

Well that was some confusion about @gmail.com and @googlemail.com
(which we have to use in Germany due to legal issues), it works now...

Thanks for the help so far, if there is any further info which I need
to dig out, I will happily do so when I get home tonight!

Rock on,
