Hi all,

I use MP with 2 STB (Star-Choice and Bell Express vu)

Excitement to install new RC1 went cold when IR-Blaster seems to have a problem. However, sins IR blaster is pretty old code I figured that it needed a rebuild with latest SVN. After Juggling around a bit I managed to recompile a DLL against the latest SVN of MP. Guess what it works but it’s scary because there are 22 warnings as below:

MediaPortal.GUI.Library.Log.Write(string, params object[])' is obsolete: 'This method will disappear. Use one of the Info, Warn, Debug or Error variants instead.”

Any body have some more info how I can substitute this obsolete code into non-obsolete?

Nevertheless for the fellow N. Americans running with STB the Re-compiled IR-blaster seems to work for now.

I attach the latest compiled version for whoever needs it.

BTW, I had the same problem when trying to use tv3server. (newer serverblaster but same thing wouldn't switch channels on my STB)

    This it's a bug forum for integrated plugins for MP, not 3'rd party's since we can't do anything because of the lack of source, the best plays for this it's in plugin sections.....
