Was there a fix for server going to sleep?
Was there ever a fix to keep the server awake when using the Samsung app? I've been catching up with the F1 practice and when the video froze, I eventually realised the server had gone to sleep. I don't normally have the problem as I postprocess the recordings to MPG for easier navigation with the app and copy to my tiny always on microserver and view from there.

I don't know if there is something I can do from the client side to prevent the server from going to sleep. We'll have to ask sub about this one.
Server may go to sleep while watching a recording using the Smart TV app.
While playing the only activity from the client except for the streaming itself is the call to set current playing position every 5 secs.
Is there anything else I can do client side to prevent Martins server from going to sleep?
I don't know if you can do it in the Samsung app but I have x-newa web client send a WOL when I need to call the API. My backend is on an SSD and it only takes 10 seconds to come back to set resumed/watched. Then again I don't set the resume point every 5 seconds which should be enough to prevent sleep if the sleep network monitoring is working.
I had the same problem with my BDF6500, try this program it works quite well.
Thanks for that, it looks like the easiest solution for now. I'll give it a whirl.
