Using Event Ghost isn't something for very entry level users, but it's immensely powerful once you figure out how to use it. This plugin makes allows me to take full control of my setup. Thanks to the developer!
I had everything perfect and saw his update. I figured hey what can it hurt? Apparently a lot. With the plugin enables "Stop" does not work and MediaPortal closes after each video. Without the plugin MediaPortal functions properly but I have 0 remote commands. So I know your thinking well roll back the update. You can't the plug in manager will only install the latest update. It will let you select earlier updates but "installs" the latest. Hell I cant even get the bad version to reinstall anymore. Needless to say I am not impressed right now.
Why didn't you try to get support on the forum or IRC channel before writing a review ? I never heard of this problem before, but I do have every version offline, I could make it online for you so you can revert. I think you have changed something else that's causing the plugin to stop working though.
