I've been going through the docs for making the backend shutdown and
wake by alarm based on next recording time, etc. All pretty
straightforward enough. I have even gotten the backend to WOL
successfully (using the magic packet and the wakeonlan command).
But if I have remote frontends, they of course will notice when the
backend goes away and pop up the familiar "backend gone" dialog. That
is all fine.
I wonder however, is there a way to configure a remote frontend to
(execute a script to) send a "WOL" to the backend when somebody wants to
use the FE?
