I was having trouble with this issue so I posted a thread in the LinHES section as it pertains to version R6, http://mysettopbox.tv/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=21240 relates.

In there I got a very simple answer from brfransen
Quote:
Those settings look correct but to make sure you can run the mythwelcome-config.py. That should make the settings correct.


It took a couple of goes to get it to work as I was running the command as the wrong user. You need to run the command as the mythtv user and I haven't had to touch my settings what so ever.

A side note is that when I installed R6.03 I told the system to start Mythwecolme so I believe that step may still need to be done, but the configuration itself is now all scripted.

I noticed in your version you still have a quotation mark at the end of the Pre-shutdown Check Command which should not be there.


and the paths of the mythwelcome-set-alarm is different:

Code:
sudo sh -c “/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh $time”


and I m not shure why its not working... :cry:

Ill try it step by step again...

Happend to me, as well: I pasted the path to mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh to the input text box and the script never got called.

After I typed the entire command manually it worked. No copy-paste, just typed
Code:
sudo sh -c “/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh $time”

in the configuration text box.

One thing which might help in debugging: add a line in mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh
Code:
sudo nano /usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh
like this:
Code:
echo `date`: $0 called with argument: $1 >> /home/mythtv/mythwelcome-settime.log


Using this I quickly found that mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh did not get called correctly and I could make the change in mythwelcome --setup.
(although mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh already has logging capabilities, but I found this to be simpler to diagnose)

OK, i will check that.

But do I get it right, if I ran
Code:
sudo sh -c "/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh $time"

I should see the new wakeuptime in the Bios, right?

To be honest, I have no idea if the time set by the script is the same that is visible in the BIOS. Probably yes, but I never checked.

However, to make this work the variable $time must contain the time you plan to wake up. $time is set by mythtv, it is NOT universally available in the shell.

Try to run mythwelcome-test-wakeup.sh and you should see the wakeup time set to 5(?) minutes in the future in the BIOS.

or run
Code:
sudo sh -c "/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh `date +%s`"


to set the wakeuptime in the BIOS to the current time

good luck!
Jens

OK thats strange now!

At the beginning I checked
Code:
mythwelcome-test-wakeup.sh

and it woke up my box flawless.

but now it doesn anymore! :cry:

If I try the
Code:
mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh
it simply says that it doesnt have permissions for some things:

Code:
mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh
/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh: line 21: /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm: Keine Berechtigung
/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh: line 22: /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm: Keine Berechtigung
/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh: line 23: /var/log/wake_alarm: Keine Berechtigung


why does that happen?

OK, one last question:

Code:
sudo mythwelcome-test-wakeup.sh


cleanly wakes up the machine after 4 min.

but if I mark something for recording and shut down the machine it doesnt wake up?

So what?

Hi wulf... not sure where your problem lies, but here are my settings... it was setup in 6.01 and I haven't had to touch it since upgrading to 6.03. I am copying and pasting the commands from vnc so there shouldn't be any typos.

MythShutdown/Mythwelcome Settings (mythwelcome --setup)
Command to Set Wakeup Time:
Code:
sudo sh -c "/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh $time"

Wakeup time format:
Code:
time_t

nvram-wakeup Restart Command:
Code:

Command to reboot:
Code:
sudo /sbin/reboot

Command to shutdown:
Code:
sudo /sbin/poweroff

Command to run Xterm:
Code:
xterm

Command to run to start the Frontend:
Code:
/usr/LH/bin/mythfrontend-start



Shutdown/Wakeup Options (Page 5 of General from Mythbackend setup)
Startup Command:
Code:

Block Shutdown before client connected
Code:

Idle shutdown timeout (secs):
Code:
300

Max. wait for recording (min):
Code:
120

Startup before rec. (secs):
Code:
600

Wakeup time format:
Code:
yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ss

Command to set Wakeup Time:
Code:
/usr/bin/mythshutdown --setwakeup $time

Server halt command:
Code:
/usr/bin/mythshutdown --shutdown

Pre Shutdown check-command:
Code:
/usr/bin/mythshutdown --check



The relevant part of my /usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh code is:
Code:
echo 0 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm      #this clears your alarm
echo $1 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm     #this writes your alarm
cat /proc/driver/rtc > /var/log/wake_alarm


Hopefully this helps.

Be Persistent! Bleib Hartnaeckig! It can be made to work as the example with mythwelcome-test-wakeup.sh shows.

Did you try the debugging line in mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh I recommended a few posts above? You could also add the line
Code:
echo user ist: $USER >> /home/mythtv/mythwelcome-settime.log

to show if the script is run as root.

The error "Keine Berechtigung" ("no permission") happens because mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh must be run as root.

For me it all started working after I completely erased the line 'sudo sh -c "/usr/LH/bin/mythwelcome-set-alarm.sh $time"' in the "Command to Set Wakeup Time" field in mythwelcome --setup and re-entered it by typing it in completely. (I had pasted it before, and somehow this had screwed it up).

Try the debugging hints given in this thread and report back with the results.

Good Luck!
Jens

How did you shutdown the maching?
On my setup (KM5.5) I have to let MythWelcome perform the shutdown. If I do the shutdown any other way the wakeup time isn't set.

Well thats how it is supposed to be!

and gib THX to knappster, the showing of his config helped to find the last error.
Through something my Wakeup time format wasnt set to time_t

So it just works now! :D
