    Hi everyone!

    Do somebody know if its possible to write a script or a macro that controls a function of an MP Plugin?
    I use the IR Server Suite with my Harmony ONE Remote and got some macros to control my ambilight. I can control most of the build in fuctions of the AtmoWin Application but using the Live-View mode occurs in stuttering inside MP and Windows Aero will be disabled. With the Live-View Method of the Atmolight plugin this problem is solved but i cant turn it on and off when i want to. The plugin only supports turning the ambilight on and off when a Movie starts/stops or when the Live-TV is starting. I can turn it off with a macro that uses command line parameters for AtmoWin but i cant start it again if i want to :(.
    I looked at the sourcecode of the plugin and i know the function names but i am not a developer and have no clue about the MP architecture. Maybe someone of you can tell me if something like this is possible or not.

    THX in advance!
