all working well, computer waking up and sleeping as required both with media portal and with a windows scheduled epg loading task
When the singleseat is started by a remote client no TV or AMP has to turn on.
I managed this by using a batchfile which parses the 'suspend' 'resume' 'awaymode' and 'onrun' arguments.
These will trigger a IRSS macro which blasts IR code.
Soon I will post this solution somewhere one the forum, because I think there are more people using a similair setup.
One important question remains:
Do I have to donate to 'team-mediaportal' or is it possible to donate to the author directly? I really like to give a donation for the fact that this made me happy :-)
I am happpy that you love the PS++ plugin, but I do not want to get money for it. So I would ask you to give your donation to the MediaPortal team.
The function is still there, but no longer configurable - the prewakeup time is fixed to 60 seconds.
With this plugin my HTPC wakes up and hibernates like clockwork and even stays on during downloads and then hibernates when done.
The first version I tested did not work well, the 100% CPU problem but a day later a new version was out.
Now when it is not being used it hibernates - so even the background hum of the disks has gone - so quieter too!
I turn it on and it works, leave it on the home screen and ignore it - it will hibernate and wake up for recordings as necessary.
This MAKES MP a much more power and noise friendly piece of living room furniture.
Ich habe jetzt beide HTPCs mit der integrierten Lösung laufen - geht besser als vorher. Irgendwie sind beide Lösungen nicht ganz gut.
