You don t need to program the 900 as Media Center PC per se. When you run Eventghost there are Windows options you can config like putting the computer to sleep, restart it etc. etc. You can assign remote commands to these macro's.
But what I m looking for is a way to wake a pc from 'shutdown mode' with the HR900. This should be possible I think and I m trying to figure out how to.
Ok, I'm with you now.
I'd take a look at the ACPI wiki
if you have not done so already. I think what you are looking for is a Wake from G2/S5 (soft off) as during a full shutdown
everything is de-powered except for the system clock.
FWIW, My Intel BIOS has settings for S5, but I have not been able to get the IR (via USB) to respond to anything beyond G1/S3. (Edit: this is why
Perhaps your ASRock BIOS, even through it has an Intel chipset, has some options for this so the USB (IR) is responsive during S5? Otherwise I suspect you will need to find a way to send a signal from the Harmony to a networked device so it can wake via the LAN. And you are correct---this should
in some fashion (in theory).
What that is, I have no idea. If you do eventually find a solution can you share it here?Edited by bluechunks - 8/14/13 at 7:38am
