    • What plug-in do you use to work with the USB-UIRT for receiving and decoding the IR commands?
    I've been using for a year. Whenever I pause/stop a movie or turn off TV, it raises living room lights. When I press play, it dims them again. Also have a number of events to control lighting programmed into my Logitech Harmony (IR model). (Lights 30%, 70%, Off. bathroom break, Cocktail break, etc.) Can't beat it for $50 and it's very cool to do the above kind of stuff

    I just took an old toshiba dvd remote, learn't a dozen or so buttons and used it's ir codes as the triggers. You can paste in Maestro codes (that you can find all over internet too)

    The ONE big downside is that the Harmony must be in an activity to be able to use the buttons. I wish some of the buttons functioned when no activity was active.

      I know I have seen it somewhere, but can you use the USB-UIRT and Global Cache plugins at the same time?
