    Description of Change
    This change integrates the PowerScheduler++ plugin into Mediaportal, i.e the built-in PowerScheduler is replaced by the Powerscheduler++ functionality.

    The MP build provided is based on MP 1.4 and PowerScheduler++ 1.4.0.0.

    The source code can be found in the branch EXP-Replace_PS_by_PS++ on github.

    Steps to install and test
    Installation
    Download the installer and execute it. If you already have MP 1.4 installed, uninstall it first, since you cannot update MP 1.4 with another MP 1.4 (see here for more installation details).

    Verify installation
    The PowerScheduler++ in this test build will show up as "PowerScheduler" (not "PowerScheduler++"). Run both server and client configuration and check the PowerScheduler plugins' version. It should be 1.4.0.928.

    Configuration
    See the PowerScheduler++ wiki pages for details about PS++ configuration.

    Testing
    Everything should work ;-)
    Please do not forget to give some feedback (also if there is no bug). Thank you!

    Only with the ones that allow replacing dll files, not with the ones providing full installers (like this one). But I will provide dlls for manual replacement too.

    Not much to test on this. It installs and works exactly the way it should.
    The only small issue is the plugin is still named "powerscheduler" not PS++, confused me for a second.

    Being a noob with MePo, why do i need this? I suspect i do but can someone clarify

    The reason i think i need this is that i had a TV record scheduled for 6am this morning, last night i hit the power of button on my MCE remote, the PC powered off but did not power on again to record the scheduled TV show this morning.

    Thats the reason why you need this plugin. ;) It will wake up your HTPC from Standby for recordings and after the recording is done it will put your HTPC back to sleep again. (if no other programm will prevent standby)
