Mythwelcome Shutdown menu item does not work if block shutdown before client connect is selected?

Description

The "Block shutdown before client connected" option is selected in the Shutdown/Wakeup? Options backend screen. Load mythwelcome and press m to display the menu. Select the shutdown menu item. This does not work as I am guessing it is waiting for a client to connect but as you have specifically told it to shutdown it should do regardless of this setting. It should shutdown using the configured command and set the wakeup time for the next scheduled recording

This seems to be working fine for me. MythWelcome? doesn't use the "Block shutdown before client connected" setting when you choose to shutdown from the popup menu. That option is only used by the backend when deciding if it should start the shutdown sequence.

It does check things like is there a recording taking place or is a recording about to start etc. You will see a popup message telling you why it wont shutdown if that is the case.

It could be a permissions problem. You need to setup sudo so it will run mythshutdown with root privileges so it can set the wakeup time in the BIOS and perform a reboot or poweroff. There is some info on the wiki page on how to do that :- http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Mythwelcome
