Wake from Sleep to Record TV question (1 Viewer)

Hi all,
I've finally got Mediaportal to wake from sleep, but only by putting the HTPC to sleep thru the Mediaportal gui. Is this the only way to get MP to wake the htpc from sleep for scheduled TV recordings? If so, it would be a real pain to always have the MP client running and unable to use windows sleep options. Powerscheduler in the MP client and the TV server are configured as the threads suggested and the htpc runs on Vista 32bit.

Ideally, I'd prefer the htpc to wake without needing the Mediaportal gui running and regardless of how the htpc was put to sleep (whether by hibernate or sleep, or by the start menu or from the mediaportal gui). Is there another plugin that will do this? Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    MediaPortal does not need to be running at all, only TVService and yes it is best to let either TVServers powerscheduler or MP client put windows to sleep, especially if you experience any missed recordings.

    thanks, for the reply.
    Is there a command line or sendmessage to tell powerscheduler or TVService to put the computer to sleep?

    Hi alec,

    I use PVRScheduler and not PowerScheduler this is an extra Programm which has a plugin for MediaPortal and is also free. This PVRScheduler is installed as Service and runs in the background to wakeup PC or make the suspend. It has many features and configruations options. I have no problems with this tool.

    Thanks for that but it does seem to me that Madvr is the issue here, I guess it is not as robust as the EVR or does not get shut down as elegantly, I also suspect, though I have not tried it, that the result would be the same for playback of any video, i.e. not just TV. Given that German TV is now all transmitted as full HD, the need...

    P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client. Same exact network, firewall, Defender settings. It's a slightly older version of Win 10 though - I haven't updated to 20Hx on it yet. Maybe I shouldn't (or maybe I should image it...

    That's why I mentioned it :) (I think the client and server plugins talk to each other) Also read the Wiki pages for the PS plugin - PS - How it Works

    How do you check it? And why keep it when we have an IMDBID in the database - it's almost 100% guaranteed accurate identification of the film, IMDBURL is just unnecessary information that will clutter the database.
