    Did you test the 1.7 Pre Release? It was an old issue.

    If you don't use the Learn... button the WOL can work. The MP will learn the MAC address when the server will be accessed.

    I will rework this form to learn the MAC on exit if the WOL is enabled.

    OK.

    It will be in the 1.7 Pre Release.

    I will check.

    As I remember, this issue was not fixed in 1.6.0.9

    Can you check the 1.7 Pre Release from the internal forum?

    Hello regezter.

    Very nice work you have done here.........any plans to migrate some of the nice implementations into the TV-client's WOL feature?

    The WOL feature in TV client have several flaws, and only works partially
    • WOL only seems to work when starting MePO - If your disconnected while streaming or doing other things in MePo, TV-server will not wake again unless restarted.
    • The connection dialog boks for re-connecting is very slow, if server cannot be reached! Should be able to reject faster.
      • A "Please wait for WOL/re-connect" dialog box should be displayed - Today the whole GUI just STALL - No way to cancel request
    • In some cases Hostname/IP disappears from Re-connect dialog - An Autoscan feature would fit nice in there.

    Community & @Testers ;)

    We have an issue described in JIRA. To resolve it we need to modify the WOL feature and test both fo them.

    What we need to test.

    TEST 1 (the issue MP1-4400)

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Set up (at least) 2 Music folders, and check 1 as default (let's call that Folder #1).
    2. Strart MP, Enter Music section (you should be in the default Folder #1)
    3. Make sure you use 'Shares View'.
    4. Go up 1 level (...)
    5. Enter Folder #2
    6. Start playback of a song and notice your location (Folder #2)
    7. Hit X on keyboard to jump to NowPlaying
    8. Let the song play for about 5 seconds, then hit ESC to go back (don't stop playback).
    Now, you should be back in Folder #2.

    TEST 2

    Full test of the WOL feature to avoid any issue with this fix.


    The installer is attached in the 1st post: (2014.03.18) Setup-MediaPortal-1.7_Pre_Release.zip

    Thanks for advance!
