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 have a Dish VIP 211K receiver that updates its software (not Program Guide) at 3am every night then "goes to sleep" with the Dish Logo dancing around the screen. There is a message on the screensaver logo saying "Your Receiver is currently off. Press Select to watch TV." I have to physically pick up the Dish Remote and press the "SAT" mode button for the Receiver to Power up. Otherwise, since the receiver is still off - my Windows 7 MCE with IR Blaster will record an entire movie with nothing but the Dish Logo dancing around the screen! How annoying!
I would like to know if I can somehow get EventGhost to send the same IR Code as the "SAT" mode button on the Dish Remote, automatically at 3:58am each morning to "Wake UP" the receiver for any programmed recordings that day. Every time I go out of town, no one is around to press the Remote buttons to wake up the receiver and all my recordings are blank. (Well, blank in the sense that it only shows the dancing logo).
If EventGhost can send codes by itself automatically everyday, or Windows Task Scheduler could be set up with EventGhost command line to do this, it would be great. Windows 7 MCE (Media Center Edition) does a great job of changing channels and recording as long as the receiver is not asleep.
I am leaving town for 10 days in a couple of days, and would like to have this installed and running ASAP, so I can test it.
CAN ANYONE THAT IS A GURU AT THIS TELL ME HOW I CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN?
