I had purchased the PC to TV  system for my Home Theater... and it didn't work out like I had hoped. The unit can be used to send a IR signal to a remote location (equipment rack) but to be honest the powermid works best for remote IR. Nether unit will convert the IR to X10. For that you will need the IR mini controller (that's what I use).
