  • Question

  • Didn't someone have some software for WHS that worked with X-10? I tried to search but my satellite Internet connection has been throttled down to painfully slow speed.

  • mControl is what you're probably thinking about. There was also an add-in that someone had started on, I think. Or you can roll your own pretty easily. I've even managed to output X-10 commands using Microsoft Word. Smile

  • I have tried a couple of times to Add-in mControl and had it show success but it did not function.  First it knocked out all methods of accessing the console except through Remote Desktop Connection.  Then it appears as a tab but hsa no data in it as the supplier indicates.  I had to remove mControl and reboot the server before I could have normal access to the Console.

  • I am using mControl on WHS without any problem. Company written good installation instructions and just simply following it I got all my setup working. I am happy user of mControl. Also if I have problem or question, their forum is the best place as usually someone from dev team reply in couple hours. Try it again. It should do the job for you.
