DVBLink PC Client waking up HTPC.

Postby Percy » Mon May 28, 2012 10:55 pm

As the title says, I have my netbook with the DVBlink client installed which works great, the problem being if my HTPC is in sleep mode it will wake up when my netbook starts.

As it is my netbook will only be occasional TV usage so I really don't want this to happen.

Anyway I can stop the client starting up with the netbook and only start it when its needed?

Are you saying that, your dvblink network cliet is automatically waking up the dvblink server??

I and quite a few others have requested this as a feature, but were told, that it is NOT implemented.
Which means, that if you start a client and try to tune to a channel and the server is asleep, it won'T work, and you'll get the infamous 'playready' error message.

So what kind of client do have?

Networksettings on the HTPC are not set properly awakening HTPC on traffic.
Solution: Restrict to "MagicPaket"

Maybe thats it

To start the HTPC when needed u need to send a "magic Paket" to the HTPC on demand.
Google for Tools doing this. I guess there are several for free available.

I am running everything on the 4.1 server client all on windows 7.

That makes sense, first to stop my htoc waking and then get it waking on demand, I thought it was standard thing but clearly not.

Thanks
