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.
A nice improvement would be the creation of a new type of plugin that contains all of the IR commands corresponding to an IR-controlled device (e.g., my Mitsubishi HD1000U projector). This feature would enable EG to build up a library of devices, over time, so that it becomes unnecessary for people to teach IR codes to EG in order to control external devices...eventually, most commonly-available devices would be already known to EG, and users would just select their devices from the plugin library rather than teaching IR commands manually. Perhaps it's possible to data-mine one of the various websites that publishes IR codes for remotes from various manufacturers...that might get EG off to a really good start.
The thing that appears to make this difficult today is that EG doesn't support a generic notion of a "Transmit IR" command...I have to use the "Transmit IR" command supported by my specific IR transceiver plugin (in my case, the Vista+ MCE transceiver plugin). This obviously makes it problematic to record the IR codes in any generic way. But I'll bet that it would be possible to define a new plugin type that allows to dynamically choose the IR transceiver.
