Figured I'd bump this thread instead of creating a new one...
I used a second NIC to share my computer's ethernet connection with the TiVo (crossover cable connecting computer directly to Netgear FA120 USB/ethernet dongle in Toshiba SD-H400). When I installed the NIC, I connected the optional "wake on lan" cable to the motherboard's hookup for it, just to see what would happen. When I first tried having TiVo connect while the computer was off, the connection failed, so I assumed WOL wasn't working.
However, yesterday I had reason to power-off and reboot my TiVo. The computer was off at the time, and when I turned on the TiVo I heard the computer suddenly power up and I was able to connect to the network. When I turned the computer off again and had TiVo try to connect (without restarting the TiVo), failure.
So, is the limitation for WOL that TiVo only sends the "I'm here! Trying to connect to the network! Please wake up!" signal when it first boots and detects a dormant network connection? Is there any way that WOL can work without having to restart the TiVo?
I'm not a network guru, so I have no idea if this is a software or a hardware issue. Just curious...
