Having to deal with the CM15a replacement... question(s)

1. Is the off / on data and and macros stored in the CM19 after downloading / updating???
2. Is there a clock in the CM19???
3. If so, then could I plug the CM19 into a USB power supply to keep the programs active and usable with the computer off, much like the CM15???

THANKS, J

1. No the CM19A has no memory in it. As far as I can tell, doing a download does nothing with the CM19A. It may update the computers data, but I have no concrete knowledge of that.

2. No

3. No.

The CM19A TM751 {CM15K} combination also has no power line receiver for triggering from power line events.

THANKS for the bad news, which I had already figured out... just wanted someone else to confirm.

Next question... is the another manufacturer who has a device which is an exact or better replacement for the CM15a???

Not holding my breath waiting on X10... this type of corporate oversight is very, very poor management on the very item that bonds the entire home automation together... worse, it may not have been an oversight!!!

THANKS AGAIN, J

I'd wait until July of this year an X10 Employee who posts here has said in the second part of 2012 a new interface will be available and he does not post lies.

So now that July has come and gone, and August is almost gone as well -- any ideas where this new interface may be?

The fate of the replacement for the CM15A is really fuzzy right now.

I'd wait for either November or December for the possible release of the next generation of interface.  2012 does not end until 12/31/2012.  There are other posts here that show X10 modules being offered again by X10.

My prediction is "not this year".

Even if they were introduce a new controller tomorrow, I think I'd hold off on buying one for a while. I really would need to see a lot of positive reports, and very few negative ones, to jump on the bandwagon. I have no desire to *pay* to be a beta tester of their new interface.
Besides, My two CM15A's have been working fine for me, and I've still got a few spares in my parts box.

I REALLY hope they come out with an acceptable replacement soon.  I was planning on doing big things with them (here's what im doing so far www.HomeNetworkX.com).

to X10 - My replacement wishlist:
1) USB connection that works with the existing SDK
2) RF AND Power line Tx/Rx
3) I personally would like to drop memory and battery backup (a smaller package would be nice)

The first two are the LEAST you can do to provide an adequate replacement.
