thank you.
I found a solution for my issue: mythtv is configured to set before
shutdown he date and time for wakeup in a file, stored in nfs
partition on a 24x7 box.
with a cron script, the 24x7 box check this file and queue the
wakeonlan command for 'at'. at the specified time and date the 24x7
send magic packet and wakes the mythbox up.

Now I would to check mythwelcome: perhaps I can do it better!
