    Download Version 1.4.0.1

    This is the stable version of PowerScheduler++ designed for MediaPortal 1.4. There are legacy versions for MediaPortal 1.3 and MediaPortal 1.2.x on the PowerScheduler++ homepage.

    There is also a special MP 1.4 version with PowerScheduler++ 1.4.0.1 integrated for testing in Area 51.



    What is PowerScheduler++
    The PowerScheduler++ plugin is a replacement for the PowerScheduler plugin that comes as part of MediaPortal. Compared to the original PowerScheduler plugin it provides easy configuration
    • In Plug&Play Mode all you have to do is to choose one of the four system profiles (HTPC, Desktop, Notebook, Server - the one fitting best is preselected) and set the desired sleep timeout. Everything else - including the Windows power options - is set automatically to some reasonable values by PowerScheduler++.
    • In Expert Mode all options are available for the experienced user. You can use the Expert Mode to see in detail, what the Plug&Play Mode would configure and change it, if required.
    • All Windows power settings are made automatically
    • Client settings are automatically matched to server configuration on single-seat scenarios
    and lots of new features
    • Integrated scheduler for system reboot
    • Away mode is individually configurable for each standby handler (EPG, Network, Process, ...)
    • Reboot, Network, Processes and Active Shares standby / wakeup settings are now available also for standalone clients.
    • For the users experiencing problems with audio mute after wakeup or return from "Away mode" PowerScheduler++ now unmutes audio automatically if necessary.
    • External commands can be executed on entering and leaving away mode
    For more information see the PowerScheduler++ Wiki Page.

    What to do in case of errors
    To give you support I need full logs. Make a reboot and start MP client with "Start -> All Programs -> Team MediaPortal -> Mediaportal -> MediaPortal Debug-Mode" and try to reproduce your problem. Then take the log files and upload them. Have a look here how to create logs.

    Hi,

    So I got this errors with 1.1.3 stable Powerscheduler++. Why does the original Powerscheduler runs without any errors and the modified version not ?:(

    Windows Powersettings are the same and configured as you says...

    Best regards
    Harald

    The errors indicate a database problem, nothing special with PowerScheduler++.
    If you would send complete logs I would probably be able to tell you why.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your fast reply:D

    But I have no other Errorlogs . What do you mean with complete Logs - and why causes an Upgrade of the Powerscheduler database errors ? If I go back via reinstall of the TV Server to the original Powerscheduler I got no database errors.
    How can I fix the Database ?

    Please helpme

    Best regards
    Harald

    Hi,

    Now it works fine without any errors on my Single Seat System:D
    - I do a fresh Win7 Install ( via Image ) and do not configure the original Powerscheduler ( TVServer/Client) - let both disabled
    - then I install Powerscheduler++ 1.1.3.0
    -reboot
    -and at least i enable and configure Powerscheduler++ in TVServer and Mediaportalconfig

    Thats all ! It works perfekt without any errors in errorlog

    Best Regards and many Thanks for this wonderful Plugin:D

    Re: PowerScheduler++ 1.1.3.0 - Stable version for MediaPortal 1.1.3

    I would be grateful if someone could help with a little problem
    I'm having with Powerscheduler++. The problem is that when a TV
    recording is played back the system shuts down after 5 minutes
    (the standby/wakeup setting). I'm using PS version 1.1.3.0
    (after upgrading from 1.2.0.12 in case that was the cause of the
    problem) and running MP 1.1.2 with the Sky EPG/UK enhancement
    installed. The computer runs under Windows 7 Home Premium 64
    bit. Windows power management is set to sleep after 30 mins.

    The PS setting are:

    General: HTPC

    Standby/wakeup: Ticked - PS forces system to go to standby when
    idle. Time set to 5 mins. Ticked - Wakeup system for various
    events.

    Processes: Ticked - No standby while MP client is not running.

    The problem goes away if I untick the Standy/wakeup "PS forces
    ..." option but then the system will not go to sleep after a
    recording is completed.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Logs attached created when watching playback of a recorded TV programme. The PC was manually stopped at the end. Many thanks.
