More on the Asus R2H Vista Experiment

Now that I’ve got Vista working with the new drivers on the Asus R2H, I’ve been using the device for note taking during rehearsals of our next show, Stones in His Pockets, which opens tomorrow night. Things have been going reasonably well, although I’ve hit a few bumps in the road.

For some reason, the device is throwing a USB driver error when it returns from Sleep Mode and causing a blue screen. I’m not sure what that’s all about, but I’ll have to check into it. It might have something to do with the fact that I did not install the Power4Gear power manager that Asus includes as its power managing application.


If I put the device into hibernation while in the high res mode, it will randomly return from hibernation with the device in pan and scan mode. Switching it back to low res mode quickly fixes this, but it is an interesting and frustrating random occurence.

Those are two events I’ll need to investigate further. But in the mean time, I noticed in a comment to this post, that GBM reader Dave just received his Vista upgrade package from Asus that inlcudes a new driver disk. It will be interesting to see the reports from users as they do this upgrade to Vista.
