    Overview

    The in-built PowerScheduler takes care of all power operations for your MediaPortal computer, e.g. wakes up the system when a recording is due and puts it in a power-saving state (S3 or S4) after the recording is finished.

    Introduction

    Note: As of v 1.5.0, the PowerScheduler++ extension replaces the previous PowerScheduler plugin and is installed with MediaPortal.

    PowerScheduler is a process plugin, which means it does not have an interface within MediaPortal, but works as a process behind the scenes. 

    PowerScheduler consists of two different plugins:

    • a server plugin for the TV Server
    • a client plugin for each MediaPortal client

    PowerScheduler can be used in all MediaPortal configurations

    • Single-seat (MediaPortal client and TV-Server on the same machine)
    • Client only
    • TV-Server only

    Combinations of the above are supported, e.g. a single-seat system with remote clients

    If you have a local TV-Server installed on your system (single-seat), the main configuration is done in the Server plugin and the Client plugin uses most of those settings, so it requires little configuration. 

    If you have no TV-Server installed on your system (standalone client) you have to configure all settings in the client configuration.

    Features

    PowerScheduler wakes up your system for various configurable events

    • Scheduled recordings (Radio or TV)
    • Grabbing EPG
    • Scheduled reboot

    PowerScheduler prevents your system from going to a power-saving state (standby) while

    • User is active
    • Playing media (Music, Video, Radio, TV, …)
    • Watching pictures or slideshows
    • Recording Radio or TV
    • Grabbing EPG (optional)
    • Network activity, active network shares (optional)
    • Running processes (optional)

    When the system is idle, i.e. all these activities have finished, PowerScheduler can send your HTPC to standby.
