Plextor TV402U TV Tuner wakes up powerbook?

Does anyone know if the Plextor tuner will wake up a Powerbook to record programmed shows? I know the Eyetv 200 is supposed to. This feature would probably be worth the price difference to me.

Thanks!

It's the EyeTV software that wakes your machine not the hardware.

Okay, great. And I also read that the EyeTV 1.x software had problems with this feature on laptops, and that Elgato knew about the problem and was working on it. Anyone know if this has been resolved in 2.x?

That I do not know. You could always contact Elgato about that.
