Since I bought infuse and installed it on my Apple TV 4K, I’ve been having issues to get the app’s wake on lan functionality working. On my Apple TV, Infuse 5.6.3 is able to automatically wake up my windows 10 based home server when accessing a share. However it isn’t able to wake up my synology disk station 218+ from sleep.
During the weekend, I’ve experimented with various setups of my Apple TV and tested various apps that provide the wake on lan feature.
That’s what I’ve found out:
Infuse 5.6.3 isn’t able to wake up my synology Disk Station 218+ from sleep. It doesn’t matter if the nas’ drive is mounted via upnp/DLNA or via smp. Further, it doesn’t matter whether the Apple TV is connected via Ethernet or wireless. It simply doesn’t work.
I purchased the app “wol - wake on lan” by Martin Hettiger (https://getapp.cc/app/1099457570) and installed it on my Apple TV. This simple app instantly managed to wake the synology from sleep. The only thing I had to do was to enter the MAC address of the nas.
Conclusion: Wake on lan works on the Apple TV, but is not properly implemented in infuse.
I would kindly ask the infuse developers to provide a working wake on lan functionality in one of the next updates of the app because this is a key feature for everyone who owns a Synology NAS.
