Hi all,
Does the latest infuse 4 support wake on lan and if so how does it work.

I can't see any options for it in the settings.

When my server is sleeping going into a share on infuse just shows the spinning icon. Server never wakes.

I found an older forum post where someone said infuse does support wake on lan but no further info was give.

Can anyone help?
Thanks

Cant believe I am the only one that this isn't working for.

I see no settings or anything and the infuse app will not wake up my windows shares from sleep, using SMB.

Is this even possible with ATV?

Wake-on-LAN is supported in Infuse, though the server needs to have it enabled as well.

I'm not sure if Wake-on-LAN is enabled by default in Windows, but I found this guide on how to enable it in Windows 10.

Hi James,

I have a Synology with WOL enabled.
When I lunch Infuse and go to my favorites, the NAS don't wake up. With a dedicate WOL app, WOL works great with my NAS.
Am I missing a conf on Infuse to enable WOL ?

Thanks.

Hi James,
This doesn't work, I've tested again tonight. Despite many other devices on my network waking up my PC i checked those settings you linked to and it is all enabled.

I just get the Infuse error screen when accessing favourites that are using the sleeping share.

Please help as its a pretty big stumbling block for me...

Cheers

I'm pretty sure this has been working for me in the past but oddly it doesn't seem to work now with my Mac.

Can't test with my synology at the moment as I'm in the middle of a big backup but once that's done I'll test that again as well.

We're looking into this.

For those having trouble, is the device not waking at all - or is just waking slowly?

Not at all for me. What's odd is that when you go into a faveourite share that's asleep the error screen appears within seconds, it's like it's not even checking for it to wake

Hi, I have some news about wake on lan with my syno.
Since I have update Infuse for iOS to v4 it works. But still doesn't work with tvOS version.

James, is there any differences between both versions?

Thanks !

Not waking at all with my Synology which successfully wakes up as it always has with my Mac mini WOL script I've always used.

Infuse shows a circle for a while spinning then fails.

Interestingly I tested my iPad Infuse 4 app and when I click on the disk station icon Boom, synology wakes up and after the required boot up time works nicely.

So it must be something specific to the ATV4

Hi,

I have exactly the same thing. It works with the iOS app (since v4) but it doesn't works with the tvOS app.

Interesting. Are you connecting via the same method on both devices (SMB, UPnP, etc...)?

For me is exactly the same problem. Infuse can not wake the Mac.
I have the Mac and the Apple TV 4 reinstalled, but no success.
The support also does not respond anymore, apparently do not know why that is so.
It is a very important function that is used a lot, but infuse it can not yet be reliable.
With Plex, iTunes, Serviio, Kodi, the Mac immediately wakes up in 3 seconds. In Infuse, the Mac still sleeps after 5 minutes. This makes me very sad, because Infuse is a great app.

HTPC: Apple TV 4
TV: Sony KD-65X8509C (4k 1000Hz)
Server: Synology DS916+

No update since January 2016?

With infuse 5.6.3 the problem still persists because my Apple TV 4K isn’t able to wake my synology 218+ From sleep.

Will this problem be fixed in a future update or am I missing something important?

During the weekend, I’ve experimented with various setups of my Apple TV and tested various apps that provide the wake on lan feature.

That’s what I’ve found out:

  • Infuse 5.6.3 isn’t able to wake up my synology Disk Station 218+ from sleep. It doesn’t matter if the nas’ drive is mounted via upnp/DLNA or via smp. Further, it doesn’t matter whether the Apple TV is connected via Ethernet or wireless.
  • I purchased the app “wol - wake on lan” by Martin Hettiger (https://getapp.cc/app/1099457570) and installed it on my Apple TV. This simple app instantly managed to wake the synology from sleep. The only thing I had to do was to enter the MAC address of the nas.
  • Conclusion: Wake on lan works on the Apple TV, but is not properly implemented in infuse.

I would kindly ask the infuse developers to provide a working wake on lan functionality in one of the next updates of the app because this is a key feature for everyone who owns a Synology NAS.

Thank you.

I have the same problem with my synology ds216+II.
Kodi for example has the same problem as infuse, WOL works only with the addon "advanced wake on lan". It would be great to hear from some developer if someone working on this bug.

this problem realy sucks

As of iOS 11, Apple doesn't allow apps to view the MAC address of networked devices as we have been able to in the past. Unfortunately this means WoL is no longer available in Infuse.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

Wow, that’s kind of a deal breaker to using infuse unless I’m missing something and there is a better way around this?

Devices can still be awoken by Infuse, just with a delay of a few seconds. WoL provided nearly instant wake ups.

Some further reading on why Apple made this decision can be found here.
