[support] Unable to make PVR-wake-up working correctly (1 Viewer)

Hi to everyone. I've set up an HTPC with XBMC. :rolleyes:

But TV support and PVR is in development and needs Media Portal to work (you've win here! Haha :p ).
However I'm still experiencing some problems.

First of all, I'm sorry if there are some tutorials or threads that talk about, I've done a lot of searching and I haven't found anything. :(

So, in my system, XBMC is always ON, it autostart with Windows and it put Windows in Stand-by (S3 Mode) when I want to do that (beacuse I only use a remote, not fully configured).
In XBMC, MediaPortal is executed with an extension that let you run programs. XBMC minimize and MediaPortal starts.
In this mode I can schedule recordings in Media Portal or watch TV, then I close MePo and it automatically switch back to XBMC.

For now I am able to do that:
Suspending PC with XBMC, it is able to WakeUp at schedule time and start recording. But I cannot suspend PC after recording is finished!! :mad:

I want that my system wakeup, record and then go to sleep when fished.
But, I also want to use my htpc, if needed, when recording is going, but if the recording finish while I'm watching a film in XBMC it has not to shut down everything :D
Althought if I accidentally click "Suspend" on XBMC when recording is active, nothing has to happen. :rolleyes:

I'm asking too much? Please answer beacause is over two weeks I'm trying everything!! Althought my internet line is slow (56k) and I'm not able to download something more that 15mb :/

    Part of the problem is, MP uses its own powerscheduler plugins for server and client and not windows own power options, xbmc on the other hand pretty certain uses windows.

    Really do not think you will find your answer here :(

    I would ask the PVR guys at xbmc if this is even supported atm.

    Or better still use us only ;)

    Hi francesco.tili, welcome here :)

    Well, like Ray said: "Or better still use us only"

    I have absolutely no idea how XBMC handles the S3 events. Is it using the normal Windows power events?
    Reason i wonder about it, is because you should perhaps investigate an additional add-on to MP TV Server called ForTheRecord.
    That plugin use the normal Windows power events to wake-up and sleep.

    Like i said, not sure about it, but maybe worth a try.

    My recommendations (without knowing XBMC):
    - let windows do the S3 transition after a giving idle time out
    - install PowerScheduler++ and use the htpc profile
    - make sure that xbmc does not interfer with power transitions

    Thank you all for the replies! So the problem may be XBMC itself that prevents MP to reshut down the pc. I will try that extensions and then I will let you know! ...

    ps: nobody in XBMC forum has answer me, you were the firsts...!
