My media center is configured to go into S3 standby when not recording or being used. MCE controller doesn’t have the ability to wake the computer from standby but can put it to sleep. Having a wake-on-LAN function built into the media center control set would eliminate the need for the IR receiver and be as close to a discrete on/off solution as one could get.
Wake on LAN is part of Roomie 1.5.
Awesome news, more impressed by the day!
OK, having done a little more research I have learned that from W7 onwards, Microsoft included discrete on/off commands in the revised RC6 IR protocol used by WMC. Could you confirm that these are included in the IR codeset for Media Center?
