I have this module up and running but it seems to " time out" after a bit. When I try and wake the machine in the morning it doesn’t work…even turning on the monitor manually…all I see is no signal and I cannot get the screen to work even after mouse/keyboard input.
The pi is still on, accessible via ssh, anyone have any ideas?
@dxfan227 you will need to look at what the module provides to wake up and try that thru ssh.
Usually they shut off the HDMI output.
Look in the node_helper.js file. Looks like it uses vcgencmd
I will look into this. Do you think it’s an issue with the module or with the pi entering some kind of weird sleep state due to lack of signal for so long?
As I mentioned the commands that the module sends to sleep and wake both work properly with my display it’s just when there is a prolonged no signal that it won’t ever wake up.
@dxfan227 the prolonged no signal causes the energy star power off.
But your device like mine appears not to power on by software
Is there any work around for this? I’m almost done with my mirror! Lol
@dxfan227 I use hide to hide the modules, but the screen glows. I don’t know what it would be behind mirror glass. Neither of my TV’s support programmatic on/off. I use a webcam for motion detection
@sdetweil yah I really want to get this to work. Very frustrating.
