Unfortunately your link must be for your email account with Yahoo. As it asked for your ID and password.

I did find it on the Newsletter Link this morning.

Oops

One of these days, I'm a gonna learn how to use these new fangled things called computers.  Along the way, I might just figure out what a URL is and how to post it in a response. :'

Thanks for putting the right one in.

Well the remote does look nice and purchasing one is tempting for me.  ;)

OK we already knew what was going to happen.
Ordered one will report on it when it arrives.  rofl

Claims to have stronger RF but other than that, I don't see major differences between Nstinct and ICON other than sleeker look. Was really hoping for USB hookup. I am greatly bummed.   :'(

Will wait for Brian H's opinion.

I remember seeing something on the X10 facebook page about a new icon remote. However now I have gone back and tried to relocate it, but I can not find it anywhere.  ... and if I remember right it was Natalie that posted the info.

I smell cover up! ..... LOL
I knew I wasn't going nuts!  Now why did all the X10 reps deny it??  Maybe it was posted 2 days too early, and they had too many of the old remotes to sell? 

And, as for the size, appearance is deceiving.  They are both listed as 9" x 2.25"   :(

Well, anyway, I brought you the hot news first!!   ;D

Maybe the do have lots of the last batch IR32As.
Every page on the X10 site pops up with a sales pitch for the IR32A and if you don't close it the underlying page is all semiblacked out.
Not to mention the "Want a Live Chat" and "Call Now For Your Special Free Gift" pop ups.  ;D

ny

maybe X10 is going to "update" the Icon with this similar unit they make for Phillips(?).

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B001CDOTSI/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=172282&s=electronics

I just looked back and compared the Phillips and the new X10 remote.  I gotta say, I like the X10 Nstinct better!   #:)

I am still a little leary about buying the first product run, though...  I may buy the Icon RF when it goes on double-secret clearance sale, then get an Nstinct in a few months, when they work out the kinks....   ;D

As of a short time ago. Still no it has shipped email for the new remote.
My on line Credit Card information has the charge on it for the remote.
Maybe it will just show up soon from my local Rural Route Postal Carrier. As we know it will be SmartPost. :P

You don't get your X10 packages quickly....

They sure do get your money in a hurry, though, don't they?   :'

I was always amazed when they charge my credit card, then tell me that item's no longer available, then it takes 2 weeks to get my card credited back.  Shouldn't they know when an item is discontinued before they charge your credit card?

Well it is not a quick as it use to be to receive packages.
Like a few vendors I use. They have switched from FedEx Ground to SmartPost. From the X10 NJ warehouse to here in CT. Was a one or two day shipping time. Now that it has to go through added stops. It is closer to a week or more.
If you want fast shipping you do have that "Added Cost Option" That in many cases is what the merchandise was costing you.  :'

Yes it took maybe two week for me to get a refund of a out of stock item. Was one of those clearance sales dumping the last batch of LM14A and AM14A two way modules. The LM14As sold out and where on the invoice as sold out. Credit will be applied to CC.
Maybe the sales computer can't; conveniently for X10; adjust costs. Like float the cost for a few weeks before returning it.
