Until you started this thread. I had never even heard of this controller.
Sounds like you got a great find.

I have to say neither did I till I opened the box. The guy who sold it to me obviously didn't either.

The more I drill into it the more interesting it becomes. If you haven't read up on it here's the link

X10, IR, and serial control all in the one box. It seemed to cover everything relevant at the time. I'm checking out the possibility of Ethernet too but I'd imagine that expansion module will be hard to come by.

I'll check back here with further progress. Maybe other members might have experience of it and could share their thoughts.

Yeah, I remember 300 baud. The telegraph was faster.  :'

Probably 300 baud, acoustic coupler.

That does ring a bell. Thank you for the information.

Saw this refereed to on Cocoontech Forums.

I believe there is a Linksys E1200 somewhere in my storage bins.  ::)

That looks helpful, unless it is a social engineering ploy to build a list of compromised networks to sell to the criminals it claims to protect us from.

Wow!  Thanks, Jeff!  #:)

I have many of the Leviton 16450 series keypads in my setup, but I use them with the X10 XPT "version A" transmitters, which seem externally identical to the Leviton 16400.  The LEDs on all the 16450 series keypads even work, and illuminate when an "ON" command is transmitted for the corresponding X10 address.  They are compatible with XPT "version A" (image), but not the older XPT (image).  It is easy to visually distinguish these two versions.

Anyway, my XPT units have gradually been failing.  What seems to happen to me is that some keys intermittently trigger the wrong unit codes (e.g. a different light will come on than the one I requested), and the fault becomes more frequent as time goes on.  Not all codes are affected, and looking at the X10 PLC protocol specification, the morphed codes all appear to be from one or two 1s that are flipped to 0s, so a weak power supply or perhaps even coupling makes sense.  The signal output also becomes very low.  I've been replacing them once they get to be more of a risk than a benefit to use.  But I've not been able to answer the question of what I will do once these are discontinued.  I have a "sick" one now and will try this on it and report what happens.

The clock timing on these is also all over the place, according to my XTBM Pro.  The new ones put out a signal close to 120 kHz, but my old ones seem to range from 110 to 126 kHz.  That probably means I have a second component to replace to correct that fault.
