Turning the TV on with MyMote

Asked by john

Hi, Thanks for this is app.

I wanted to see if there's away to have a script started when starting mymote. I have my power button tied to a script using irexec through lirc and I then tied the power to a button in mymote. Going through lirc, this turns my TV off and kills my FE with the script. The problem I have is I cannot turn the TV back on with the same button since the FE is not running. I then have to use my other remote to turn the TV on with the other part of the script that handles this through lirc and irexec. I don't even know if this is all possible but I wanted to run it by you. Thanks.

Sorry for the delay in response.

There's no present way to have a script started when you start mymote.

You could write a script that manually shuts down mythtv and the tv if they are running, or first up mythtv and turns on the tv if not.
