Linux -  My Budget Media Server...
#43
This morning I stumbled across this post on Reddit...

I tried to set that up on the Acer so it would load etherwake and send a WOL packet to the TV.  But etherwake need root permissions to run, which would involve much messing around with /etc/sudoers.  So I put a fresh install of Raspbian Lite on an 8GB SD card and set it up on there as Raspbian doesn't ask for a password when you use the sudo command.  It works a treat, takes about 3 seconds to start the TV from issuing the command to Google Assistant.

When I get a moment I will move the Node.js server over to the RPI and let it handle all of my IFTTT stuff.
HTPCs: RPi 3B+, 2 x RPI2B & RPi1B on LibreELEC 8.x  Control: 4 x Google Home Minis + IFTTT
Audio: Pioneer VSX-819HK & S-HS 100 5.1 Speakers
Network: Plusnet Hub One, Cisco Catalyst 2960, TP-Link TL-SG1005D & Netgear DGN1000
Server: Acer Revo R3610, 4GB RAM, 5TB HDDs, Xubuntu 16.04 x64, NFS, MySQL & Node.js
