    Issue:
    - In the general tab set the shutdown server after been idle for ... minutes to 2
    - Advanced tab, set pre-wakeup time in seconds to 300 (5 minutes)
    - Set time time before a scheduled recording should start to 5 minutes, see: TV-Server/Configuration/Recording - MediaPortal Wiki Documentation


    What happens:
    The system wakes up at 5 minutes (pre-wakeup) + 5 minutes (time before scheduled recording) = 10 minutes. But the system goes back into suspend / hibernate after 2 minutes and no scheduled recording is started.

    Suggestion:
    If (pre-wake/60) < "shutdown after been idle"
    Error/Warning message "This config is not going to work, please make the pre-wake < "shutdown after been idle""
    endif

    If this really happens, then it should be corrected!

    anyone else thinks this check can save you a lot of time and is not hard to implement?

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
