I don't know what the cost of the new IR 27A will be, but in my case, I will be purchasing several.

We have about 89 modules running the house, and I have Palm Pads with metal washers hot glued in the House Code wheel, scattered randomly about the house so I can switch house codes to control all the "main" modules. The problem is most of my brain juice has either dried up or leaked out, so who can remember the HC/UC of the 20-30 modules that I try and control on a regular basis using a Palm Pad(?).

This new IR27A is great, as it allows me create an "on screen" name for each module, an icon depicting what the module is controlling, and then segregate modules to rooms of the house. SA-WEET!!!

The situation of Palm Pads with washers,  and printed Excel spreadsheets listing modules, module locations, module address, etc. scattered around the house is now obsolete. WAF is 20 dB higher.  rofl

Not only is the Icon the BY FAR coolest best way to control X10..... it does TV's and stuff too!

Question:  Will it control via a RR501 transiever?   That's not listed in Brandon's original post announcing the  ALL NEW X10 RF iconRemote!

Yes, it transmits X10 RF on the 310MHz channel used by TM751, RR501, and CM15A.  It can also can transmit entertainment  equipment commands on the same frequency the X10 Powermid System uses, so you can use it to control equipment in a closed door cabinet,etc.

Please folks, you cant do this to the rest of us. We are drooling with every word we read about how "Great" and "Sweet" "I would even buy two or more". I say KEEP TO YOUR SELF, If any of you have a drop of passion to all the newbies and such whom can only dream of that one day being able to open our freshly received package with our own remotes. So to avoid us having to resort contacting your wives to carry out some form of disciplinary act  >*< of seperating you from your new remotes. Keep the comments short. No words of passion about your personal  new attractions. Technical info only please or else.

BaBaLou,
Point well made.  I am truly sorry for overstepping the bounds of polite and courteous geekness.  And I have not been completely truthful in my exuberant accolades. Certain criticisms I have withheld, not wanting to jade the acceptance of the new ultimate remote.... I want you to know that I do have complaints about the unit. For example: I find the hue of the red color used on the "Quick Power Button", somewhat objectionable. rofl
