I'm working on wakeup from suspend.
This would have the benefit that there is no need to
shut down the system.
I'm testing with DVB and VDR and both survive SUSPEND
perfectly (dvb-0.9.4 + vdr-1.0.0pre4).
The live picture contines during SUSPEND.
If every thing works perfectly the system (vdr) would
resume after suspend triggered by eighter RTC alarm or
serial interrupt (RC-control).
This would realy work like a settop box

    Did you try if it works at all?, e.g.
    - say, we have now 10:00
    - go to BIOS setup, set wakeup date at today, time at 10:30
    - boot linux, do whatever you like
    - SUSPEND some minutes before 10:30
    - wait if it wakes up at 10:30.

    If it works, there is still a small problem - some boards
    (and a FIC VA 503+ is among them) have to be rebooted after
    changing nvram, so maybe you will have to reboot before
    suspend...

    But maybe it is even easier - try to use RTC_ALM as
    described in the example in linux/D11n/rtc.txt. Maybe it is
    enough to wake up from suspend.

    Although RTC alarm is only a 24h alarm, I think it is not
    _that_ bad, if it would wake from suspend once a day.

    c ya
    Sergei.

    Yes it wakes up from suspend already quite perfect.
    I don't even need to reboot.
    And best it's not ignoring the date.

    This seems to work for you, right?

    So I close this item. We could discuss the configuration of
    your board in the BIOS/MB list item #535622

    Sergei.
