I would also be interested in this feature.

For me WOL on NVIDIA Shield .

Windows Sever 4.6.4.0 and Emby App 

2.0.38 does not work either.

Can you try our standard Android app on the same device and see how that compares?

Thanks.

Does this now have proper WOL support or why do you ask for a test?

This app has had WOL support for a long time.

Okay because nobody else did it i tried it myself.

Installed the Android Version of the Emby Client (3.2.12) to an old tablet i can confirm that WOL is working there as expected.

Althought that the freshly installed Client tries various WOL Patterns (only that one after the Zero Pattern is valid in my Network) is quite strange.

Any explanation for that?

Hi, it uses all mac addresses that were found on your emby server.

Which means that if i would like to set a specific WOL Mac for my server, it would be easier if this setting would be configureable in the Emby Server Dashboard, if the Client pulls that info anyway.

But that mechanism must be the same on every client. If it works on normal Android why does it not on Android TV?

Can you please re-run that test installing on the same device the TV app is running on?

Thanks.

You mean installing the normal Android App on my Android TV?

Is that possible?

Exactly, yes, we just haven't gotten to that yet.

Okay after fiddling around how to sideload stuff to the Mi TV, because it is obviously not possible to install the normal Emby App from the Play Store, i managed to get the recent Emby Android client found on APK Mirror onto my Mi TV.

I can now confirm that it works just the like on my tablet, the packet dump looks the same. So WOL works with it.

Shouldnt be a problem porting that to the Android TV Emby Client?

So nearly another month passed. The problem is identified. We know that it works in the normal Android App, only the Android TV App is affected.

Just read throught the Beta Thread for the Android TV App an i cant see that this problem is solved. So is there any ETA when this problem will be solved?

Hi. I'm sorry I cannot give you an ETA but if the standard app works for you then that is an option at this time.

Sorry but sideloading an standard Android App onto an Android TV device is a quite ugly workaroud.

I cant imagine that codebase of the two apps is so different that the solution is really complicated.
