When I went to plug it back in, the silver contacts inside got mangled. I straightened them as best as possible and it worked for a day. Now it's not recognized by AHP.

    I've thrown in the towel on X10, refusing to invest a penny more. I have one remaining X10 dimmer switch which I will switch to z-wave as soon as I run a wire with neutral down from the ceiling.
    I thought you had dozens of x10 devices and a CM15a you wanted to utilise. I don't see you needing to spend a single cent to achieve this. On the other hand if you're throwing the towel in with x10 that's a completely different matter.

    Another x10 user bites the dust. Good luck with your Z-Net endeavours.

      I do, and I did. I have two CM15a units. One stopped working a few months ago and the other broke the other day. I was moving my entire setup into a nice cabinet and the USB port broke. I would have to buy a CM15a or something that would work with at least the powerline portion. I don't see a way around that. AFA other X10 devices, I have more dimmers, appliance modules, lamp modules and assorted pieces than I can shake a stick at. I even have an SC1200 and various security modules. Not sure what I'm going to do with them.

      Fortunately, my z-net/z-wave experience has been excellent. I've even incorporated zigbee through the JowiHue PI and the entire setup is rock solid.

        @Fernando,

        You can give the X10 stuff away right here on the Homeseer forum or put it all in a box and store it for some future time.

        Here have kept (and I do not know why) a box o Insteon stuff that I will probably never use.

        As mentioned earlier here utilize X10 for my Christmas lighting; fast and easy.

          Yes, but without a CM15A or some powerline (forget RF) control ability they're useless. Not sure what else in X10 the plugin will communicate with. CM15A and CM11A. Or through RFX or WGL800 but I don't have any of those.

            The X10 plugin works with the CM11a (or any device that emulates a CM11a) and the Ti103 interfaces.

            The broken USB connector on your working CM15a could be easily replaced. If you'd like to ship both of your units to me I can replace the USB connector on the 'working' unit and see if the other unit is salvageable.

              I truly appreciate the offer, let me think about it because I fear it will only extend my painful experiences.
