PC Auto Waker

571 Views 5 Posts Mobile Phones
I wanted a way to start my media PC without having to turn the TV on that it's hooked up to so I can access the media files from there. I googled and found this app called PC Auto Waker https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.xii.relog.pcautowaker which is easy to set up all you need to do is enter your MAC address and WiFi and you're done. If you want to try this out and don't know how to find you MAC address this is heow.

I'm assuming there's an iPhone/Windows version of that app as well, anyone using that mobile OS please confirm that if you can by posting a comment.

I'm guessing this sort of this has been around for ages but I've never really bothered trying to link too many actions from my phone to my PC but recently I've decided to have a bit of an explore around.
Oh fail whale my main rig works fine but my Media PC (yes the whole reason I bothered looking this up) is not working [Rage]
*trouble shoots*

Well on the plus side at least I can turn my PC on while I'm parking the car in the garage :P

Boots in less than a minute just thought this option was cool. Just got to get it to work on my media PC.
Still couldn't get this to work on my Media PC but I have managed to get PC monitor working on there which basically does the same thing plus more. The main thing I wanted to do was fire up my media PC when it has fallen a sleep because I use it as a sloppy file server. Saves me from having turn on the TV and start it up just to access some files from my rig.
Pretty happy with that config now.
