Been trying to dig into this. i just can't really find any changes made in the lirc-pluto-0.1 under external or ubuntu.
Is it possible to get a few pointers on where the patches are located, or more direct, which files were patched?
I feel that the possibility to have the mceusb2 (and other) dongles blast ir would benefit many, since these are so much cheaper then a USBUIRT and you have multiple places that need ir control. e.g. in my case i have 2 md's and the core and would need 3 blasters to control everything, in my final setup i would need probably 4 or 5 more ir blasters. USBUIRT's are still $60, these vista mce blasters can be had for just a few bucks a piece.
