Client/Server configuration with TV-Server turned off (1 Viewer)

    I have a question concerning client/server setup running on different machines.

    My scenario: most of the time I listen to offline music or webradio on a client, which is possible without the TV server (I have a playlist per radio station and use My Music to listen). The TV server is running on a dedicated machine. Since I don't need it most of the time, I'd like to use the client having the TV server turned off. The server should only be running when I need it. I tried the WOL-PowerManager plugin to achieve this, and it perfectly wakes up the server when necessary, so no problem here.

    Unfortunately, the client wants to connect to the server all the time, even when I don't use TV or Radio; here are a few examples from the log.

    When the client is started:
    2013-05-15 06:43:34.793993 [Info.][MPMain(1)]:   Load plugins from : C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Plugins\windows\TvPlugin.dll

    When I press play or stop on the Top Bar in My Music:

       bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(Form mainForm)
       bei MediaPortalApp.Main(String[] args)

    As long as the server is turned off, MP is quite unusable because when I press a button, it no longer responds until a timeout occurs.

    So my question is: can I configure MediaPortal in a way that the TV-related stuff is only loaded/used when I actually need it?

    I browsed the forums but didn't find anything useful; I'd be glad if someone could give a hint.
