    Not sure, haven't tried it yet. That's the subject of this thread :-(

    Oh, yes. Wrestling with HomeSeer.... Been there, done that. Thankfully, everything seems stable now...

    I use a USB to Serial adapter to connect my HomeVisions unit. Works fine...

It does also depend on specific hardware you have, for instance I did have some issues with the way2call modem, the Paul 16k tts voices, and my edgeport usb-db9 converter box needed some special drivers.

    Let me know what specific hardware you have (don't worry about the basic HA comm port stuff, that is all all fine).
    Thanks for the reply. My setup uses only the Insteon and HomeVision Plugins. So I guess, I should be good to go to moving to Vista huh?

    Thanks for the post with your experiences. But neither is Vista specific. Are there any "tricks" to the Vista installation?

    There's a post in the how-to forum that has instructions on machine from one PC to another.

    How to move HS2 from XP to Vista PC

    I am sure there is a post about how to do this, but I couldn't find it. Can someone direct me to one?

    Thanks!
Working...
