    This is the intended behaviour - as long as any client is active the server has to be up, too.

    So we can concentrate on the original issue now...
    The logs provided give me no hint why your Windows system does not go to sleep. So please do me a favour and open the TV Server config and make sure that the PowerScheduler settings have been applied (modify some setting, click "Apply" and make sure that the Apply button is grayed out then). Then restart the tvservice, wait for sleep mode and if it does not happen, then send me the logs.

    Same for you: please open a new thread for your problem and do not mix it up with other people's...

    @michael_t,

    I do not have a 'Problem' I was offering the OP a possible solution to his problem.....See point 3 of my post, Although I have to admit it could have been worded better.

    This is exactly what I need. My clients rarely need to access the TV server, they are standalone with their own HDD's of media to play, but they are keeping the main HTPC from sleeping.
    Does this file you compiled work with 1.6 final? and how do I use it? the file is a .pdb file and the file you said to replace is a dll. Should I just rename the pdb file to dll?
    I really wish this setting was changeable in the GUI

    Thanks

    I see this thread has dried up a little with no apparent solution – or there has been a solution and I have missed it … my apologies if this is the case.

    I too ran into the Legacy Kernel Caller problem when attempting to set my HTPC up to start up and shutdown as needed rather than run 24/7.

    HTPC – Windows 7 Pro, Asus Motherboard, with TeVii S480 satellite card and 24/11/2014 drivers.

    Some observations that may help:
    1. Mediaportal>Powerscheduler shows Legacy Kernel Caller (LKC) driver as preventing standby operation – HTPC will not go into standby.

    2. Powercfg>reports shows LKC as active.

    3. Powercfg>requestsoverride has no effect or LKC is reestablished immediately

    4. TVServerConfig>EPG on or off has no effect

    5. TVServerConfig>TVServers>HTPC>Cards>TeVii DVB>Edit will clear LKC and standby will occur. Windows>Services>TVServer is being restarted? Note that the S480 is a dual tuner card and editing either tuner or both resets the LKC flag, also it is not necessary to change any values during the edit.

    6. Windows>Services>TVServer>Restart will clear LKC - standby occurs.

    7. Any satellite card access either via scheduled recording or MP's GUI, sets LKC and prevents standby – this includes scheduled recovery from standby.
    Maybe MP>TVServer is not resetting the LKC flag when recording is completed? Or the TeVii S480 cannot be reset or does not respond properly – once setup, how does the card “know” it is no longer being used anyway? Or there is an incompatibility between the two?

    Possible workaround> – a script inside MP – sorry this is way out of my league! to perform a Services>TVServer>Restart on recording completion.

    Mediaportal has operated trouble free for a number of years – my thanks to the folks that develop and publish this system – fantastic.

    I would recommend you to set the PowerScheduler's "PowerScheduler forces standby" option in the Advanced config tab to make PowerScheduler actively suspend your PC when it is no longer idle. This should fix your problem.

    Many thanks Michael - that change in setting did the trick - I have now had 24x hours of trouble free start/stopping over some 10 TV recordings.

    Merry Xmas - Paul
