Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

A PC trick ;D

You might have heard and searched about shutting down remote PC.But, have you ever wished to turn on your PC remotely and access your file from FTP server and shut it down when not needed? Well you can. Sounds crazy isn’t it?
With simple tweak, you can turn your PC on from LAN. This will be a lot help if you have FTP server enabled from your desktop and you may want to access it from internet occasionally. Turning your PC always on will not be good as it will consume lots of energy. Even more your PC will be much more venerable for uninvited access.
To prevent this remotely turning on your PC can be good alternative.
To turn your PC on, all you need is the MAC (Physical address) address of the PC that you are turning on and Wake up on LAN or Power management from PCI enabled in the BIOS in the PC you want to turn on Remotely.
To check if it is enabled or not, go to BIOS setting in your PC by restarting and pressing Delete key(may varry according to motherboard). Go to Power Management Options, search for Wake up on LAN or Power management from PCI or any similar terms and enable it.
If you don’t see any option to manage power for PCI adapters then it might be possible to do it in Windows mode.
To do this, boot your computer to windows, go to Device Manager. Under network adapter choose the Network card that will be used to connect to LAN, i.e. your ethernet card.
Right click on it and choose properties. Go to Advanced tab.
Now in Property box scroll down to Shutdown Wake up or any similar terms. Select it and Enable it.
You may require a reboot after this.
Now your PC is ready to be turned on from LAN. This will enable to manage power from PCI devices like Ethernet cards. What it actually does is, configures BIOS to turn the PCI Ethernet card to grab some power even if PC is Powered Off. If any computer from LAN sends some command to PCI card then will will power on your PC.
Now anyting left to do is to have a tool to turn your remote PC own from remote location. I often use this tool since its free and customizable. With this free tool you only need to enter IP address of your PC and it will automatically get the MAC address of it. If required you have password field to enter.
Pressing Turn On button will turn on the PC with specified MAC address or IP address.You can also check if the PC is on or off.

I really hope this helps you :)

How do I set the time on my Panasonic stereo system sc-en17 without the remote


Unfortunately, the clock feature is only accessed with the remote control on the Panasonic SC-EN17 with the Clock/Timer button. The original remote model number is EUR7711170. Amazon has a replacement remote here: https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-EUR7711170-REMOTE/dp/B001TISTZ0. It's $24. The manual for the micro-audio system is available on the product page: http://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/SC-EN17.html . The direct link to the manual is currently ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/audio/om/sc-en17_en_om.PDF . Setting the time is shown on page 5.

I wish that I could provide a better solution. I hope this helps.

trying to program 22 in. norcent tv. can't find the code.


hi,

You may find that the manufacturer of the device you want to add to the remote is not listed in the instruction manual or you do not have access to the manual to find the codes. The Jumbo Universal Remote has an automatic code search that will scroll through each of the codes until it finds the correct code for your device.

To use the code search, turn on the device you want to set. Point the remote at the device and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED is solid red. Press the corresponding button for the device you wish to set, such as "TV" or "DVD." With the remote pointed at the device, repeatedly press the "On/Off" button. Continue to do this until the device powers off. When it shuts off, press the "Enter" button to set the remote control. Use the "On/Off" button and see if the device turns on again. If it does, the setting is complete. If it does not, attempt the code search again and be sure to press the "Enter" button quickly when the device turns off.

ok

How do you program an RCA "RCR 615 DCM1" universal remote? Any instructions out there?


I know this is an old post, however if anyone else needs to know how to program the RCA RCR 615 DCM1 universal remote here is how: Turn on the device you wish to program, dold the device button you wish to program (tv, vcr, dvd, etc.) While holding the button with one hand, press and hold the power button with the other, hold both buttons until the device button lights up and stays on then release both buttons at once. Light should remain on. Point remote toward the device and press play button every 5 seconds until device shuts off. Once the device shuts off, with remote still pointed toward the device, slowly hit the reverse button (rewind button) until the device turns on again and then hit stop button. Now your device should be programmed. Repeat for each device. Hope this helps someone, because I had this problem myself and I played around with the remote until I figured it out . This may work for other RCA RCR----- remotes as well.
