It's not a matter of sending out IR vs RF. The remote is ALWAYS sending out RF commands to the USB dongle and you can't change that. The only thing you can do with RF is decide what to do with the command once it is received by the PC (using EventGhost). However, in addition to this standard functionality, the remote has a few buttons that can be old-school learning remote style programmed to send out IR in addition to the RF that is already being sent. These buttons include TV Power, Input, Vol Up/Down (and maybe Ch Up/Down, but I haven't tested that). As an example, let's say I program the TV Power button to send my television's power toggle command. After programming, whenever I press the button, it will fire off both the IR command that I taught the remote, as well as the standard RF command that the remote had built in. Depending on if I am running EG, I can do something with that RF command on the PC or I can ignore it. Does this make sense?
