Re: Wake on Lan

Wake on Lan is not just activity on the network. It is a special packet that is sent to wake a computer. Normally, you have to send this special packet to a specific computer (based on the MAC address of the device to wake). I would not think that the TiVo would send this out unless they specifically add it into the code.

But clearly, *something* about turning on the TiVo triggered my computer's WOL - the computer had been off until I unplugged and restarted the TiVo, at which point the computer booted up. This only happens if the TiVo is powered down and then plugged back in - just trying to force a call over the network has no effect on the computer if it's off.
Is it just a fluke that my TiVo triggers WOL upon booting, but can't at other times? Have others played around with WOL?
