    @Brownard could this be used inside MP2 Server importer as well? I think about nightly imports where a NAS device is in suspend mode and needs to be woken up to access files.
    We know the UNC paths from media sources configuration (and thus the "server" names) and could add this as step before starting a scheduled import. Could this work?

    Yes, all of the required classes are included in WakeOnLan.Common which the server can easily reference. I've also implemented GetIpNetTable2 and ResolveIpNetEntry2 (which replace ARP) so we can remotely resolve hardware addresses for both IPv4 and IPv6.
    I think @MJGraf originally wanted to incorporate it into the NetworkNeighbourhoodResourceProvider so that any time a network resource was accessed it would first try and wake the server if necessary which could be a more universal solution.

    hello @Brownard
    unfornately, the wol plugin doesn't work anymore for me.
    the IP address is fine, but the hardwareadress is broken,
    <HardwareAddress>AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA</HardwareAddress>
    i think always related to many interface erthernet

    Thanks. It's all a bit strange, the 'TVE OFF' logs show that it doesn't even try and resolve an address which should only happen if the client isn't attached to the server.
    The 'TVE ON' logs show that it finds a valid address - which includes a check that the address isn't all zeros - yet the address stored in the config file is all zeros :confused:

    I have never used a Silicon Dust network tuner, but from reading elsewhere I have a recollection that in Silicon Dust's own configuration tool you need to select "MediaPortal" as the output destination (or something like that). So this might be worth checking (just in case I have remembered it correctly). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

    There is currently only the reimport function, that can be used individually for media items, that were wrongly found or updated. There is no function yet to check, if the nfo content changed, it would take far too much time. But I'd also like a function to generally reimport all media items once again.

    Thanks @HTPCSourcer . Bit busy at the moment but I will do some more investigations as soon as I can. The client can see the server as long as it is awake, so its not like it has lost contact completely. However I have also since changed my router, but I am sure I configured it to assign the same IP address to my server PC. I will...
