Wake on Lan (how does it work?)


Recommended Posts

Can someone explain how Wake on Lan is setup on the Apple TV app? I see no setting in the app. 


My current setup is I have the Emby server running via docker on an ubuntu server 20.04. WOL is correctly setup on the server which I can wake up from my macbook. However it won't wake up from the emby app on the Apple TV. Should there be a setting or is there something I'm missing?

Thx, confirmed it working through iOS app. for future reference if anyone is running emby through docker you need to configure emby to run on host network for Wake on Lan to work properly. Here is and example docker-compose. 


    image: linuxserver/emby
    container_name: emby
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - UMASK_SET=022 #optional
      - ./emby:/config
      - ./shared:/shared
      - 8096:8096
    restart: unless-stopped
    network_mode: host

@Luke  Can you give an insight on when the feature will be added to Apple Tv app?

@Gsuz thanks, we will improve the Docker instructions.

I don't have an ETA on adding wake on lan to the apple TV app, but it's in our backlog. Thanks for the feedback.
