Shutdown PC by PMS from XMB

Postby Arcanum » Sun Feb 15, 2009 2:02 pm

Hello,
I'm new to the forums, but not new to PS3 Media Server, been trailing it since 0.99 and it's a simply astonishing piece of software, and getting even better by the version.

1.04 pretty much covers all I would ever ask for from a media server except one thing:
remote pc shutdown.

Was talking to my friends the other day and we all agreed it's such a pain in the ass (especially late at night :lol: ) to have to go to your PC (which could be on a different floor, like mine) and have to turn it off if you you're done with streaming and not planning to do something on the computer in the near time.

SUGGESTION: Make an option available under Video Settings menu to shutdown PC

I've got no experience in Java else I would already be on having it done :D , but from my programming knowledge it would be fairly easy to do for Windows, even Sleep and Hibernate options could be added.

So for starters just Shutdown option that would work for Windows, and if it seems popular enough other powerdown options/systems could probably be added later with not much fuss.

Hope this gets some consideration, as it would make a great program (near) perfect.

Thanks, starred it on the google code.

Also, decided to venture in a bit more, and after 15mins of work playing here with my own compiled version with working shutdown feature, fun :D

People have already made two code additions, both work for shutting down a PC running Windows. You guys rule 8-)

Hope the code gets into the next official release.

Wow! I'll try it out, as soon as I get some half hour of free time, as it will prolly require port forwarding on the router. Theoretically it should work, as we aren't relying on ps3 to send the magic packet (which probably isn't possible from XMB, alhough possible from "other os") but the site itself is sending one over the net, so I don't see why it shouldn't work ;)

Anyway, great find!

EDIT: It does work! Doesn't do it every time, so I have to send the packet 2-3 times, but that's down to my router which is really next to impossible to work with. Thanks again jaqb for letting us know about that great site :D

Try this site, with some nice applications for WOL. I'm thinking of putting a version on my synology Cubestation, and access it from my PS3 to WOL my pc... ;)
