    I would like a option to prevent the shutdown of the ServerPC. You should see a message that the Pc is actually recording. So you must confirm this mesasage to shutdown or restart your PC. Now you must open the TVSever Configuration to have a fast look about the status ( is there actually a recording ? )



    If this is not possible, you should have a Tray Icon that shows the Recording status at least. (Is there actually or the next 10 minutes a recording plannend)

    The above link hopefully still works and you need to do this.

    That's why my power buttons are disabled in Windows, even ForTheRecord cannot stop a user initiated off\sleep the same way WMC can :(

    Hi Ray

    That doesn't work here on Win7 x64 and says "Could not load file or assembly 'TVControl'".

    Also, as you say in that thread, there shouldn't be any need to fiddle with the TVService as "Allow service to interact with desktop" is already ticked.

    Thank you very much. This looks very good. But I think this should be integrated in Mediaportal.

    AW: Re: If the ServerPC is recording you should't be able to shutdown the PC


    A nice think but I don't need an LED, because the SeverPC is in the office room. I don't need an LED when the Monitor is off. I will only prevent a shutdown or restart when a recording is active. So a Tray Icon is enough. Only a service that prevent a shutdown would be very nice. So the suer must confirm this message to shutdownj.

    And for the Clients a LED isn't need because they don't record itself.

    :D:D

    Maybe this functionality could be added in the PowerScheduler++ plugin?

    Hm? What do you mean? If the PowerScheduler++ plugin implements the functionality you need, you wouldn't need it anymore? ;)

    What I meant is: PowerScheduler++ already has the functionality to prevent user induced shutdown. But there currently is no option to prevent it, when a recording is running for instance. (Or is there?)

    PS++ can alter a user initiated Suspend command to not suspend, but to go to the Away Mode (away mode is power on, pc running, no sound, no video) - the result is the same, the PC continues recording. It can NOT alter/avoid a restart or shutdown - windows does not allow this. My htpc will stay on when it records or while I use streaming to another PC or while I use the shares on the htpc even if someone presses the power button (it is mapped to suspend).
