I asked a similar question in the past, but the answer is still
currently no, AFAICT. From a 'power-saving without losing recordings'
standpoint, it would be great. The master backend can use WOL is
wakeup a slave, but there is no easy way to integrate a standalone
wakeup/shutdown script on a slave with its upcoming recordings list
that I am aware of.
