UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!!
We have an issue that there is no way around as of yet.
I have done all I can to try and prevent this from happening.
We are going to be losing the .com, .org and .de domains.
We have not been able to contact the original author of EventGhost
(the person that owns those domains) to redirect them to the new web server.
I set in motion when we first moved a redirection from the old server to the new server.
I also put in markers so that search engines would see this change and update any pointers
they have. We still have the .net domain for the production site. and the .rocks for the test site.
For the past few months you have been getting redirected to the .net site if you used one of the 3
domains mentioned above. I just wanted to tell everyone so they can make any changes needed.
I haven't installed Event Ghost yet. I'm using Windows 7 Media Center. I am currently using IRSS (IR Server Suite) to intercept some IR commands to trigger some macros and send some RS-232 commands to my TV and AVR. I am disappointed with IRSS, because the macros don't correctly save or interpret the values of variables, and because the command-line interface has a problem with pauses that are embedded into the macro.
I'm very interested in EG, especially because of the new RCAware plugin and hardware... but I will need to be able to continue to intercept IR commands in order to make it work the way I want. I will also need to continue to send RS-232 commands, because my AVR does not have an HDMI switch in it (which, obviously, means that it is not HDMI-CEC compliant).
I understand that EG can send RS-232 commands, and that it will work with the MCE remote receiver. I just need to confirm that EG will be able to trigger an event/action when it receives specified IR commands.

Thanks for the info. I currently use two dongles on my machine as well. One is for a cheapie remote I got on Amazon that does Windows commands (mouse pad, close window, alt-tab, etc) and the other is the MCE dongle. If the USB-UIRT will do all of those functions, it would be great to have only one dongle for IR.
Is there a reason why you use both the MCE receiver and the USB-UIRT? Does the USB-UIRT not work to receive the MCE commands?
Sorry, I wasn't clear. They are not in the same pc. I use usb-uirt in two of my pcs, mce oem in a third and a no name mce in a fourth. No need to have more than one in the same pc... Usb-uirt receives all ir signals from all remotes I've tried. It is a great product!
