Yes after further observations. It is stripped 4071 and I feel will not send the House Codes alone. That are needed to program options in the XTB-IIR and other JV Engineering devices.

I know you can create a macro in AHP to send the discrete codes needed to program Jeff's devices.
There might be a way to do it using the SDK (perhaps using SendRawPLC.exe - but I don't know the hex codes needed offhand).

If someone has some time to investigate this, it might be a useful thing to have documented, and perhaps even write a simple GUI interface that can act as a replacement for the Maxi Controller, using the SDK and a CM15A / CM19A / CM11A to send the codes.

Gee supply and demand at its finest or plain old greed.  ::)

A quick look at a few of the on line automation dealers. Still finds the SC503 in the $24.99 to $29.99 range.

Hey ... Get one here!

http://www.amazon.com/X-10-POWERHOUSE-PHC02-MAXI-CONTROLLER/dp/B0041WYO50/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1318518608&sr=8-1

 :o


The seller wants $1000.00 per purchase,  I got one 12 years ago from my local X10 Dealer for 5.95 (plus 2.50 MD sales tax) it was in service until AHP came along since the SC503 isn't listed.   I suspect  NOBODY will pay that price.

Ya think??

Surely this is a joke, a decimal point mistake, or an Amazon vendor fishing for idiots..

Minis can't do Unit Codes 9-16.
They also can't send an X10 address with out an On or Off tacked onto the command.
Some of the XTB-IIR options are set by sending a sequences of Addresses only.

I picked up some Maxi Controllers while they were still available for new and former XTBR or XTB-IIR customers who need one.

BTW, there is a mod listed somewhere that will allow a Mini Controller to do either 1-8 or 9-16.

I have seen the mod for the older MC460 Mini Controller.
I have not seen any of the replacement MC10A ones. To see if the mod could be used on it or how different it is.
My thoughts are new brand surface mounted controller. Like some of the other new ones use.

I wondered why my Leviton X10 listings on Amazon suddenly started to move, and found all the other listing prices had doubled.  Before I was maybe a couple of bucks cheaper than the other guys, but now my listings were half price.  Since that was barely above my cost after the Amazon fee, I adjusted my prices too.

My SC503/PHC02's are the same price as the Maxi Controllers that Sears sold back in the 80's.  Of course, the dollar is worth a bit less today.
