Extremely annoying and I won't visit if I can't turn it off. Don't want to have to turn my speakers off each visit. Dave

The whole pop up is annoying even without the sound. It's advertising web spam in my opinion. I hardly ever go to the X10 site any more because of it. Use the feedback option and tell them what you think! They tried it on this forum site but got too many complaints so they took it off.

See this pole and discussion.

I avoid the web site as much as possible. Bad enough the stupid things annoy you on the main page but also on every page you go to. ::) ::) :P :P

I also sent Steve an email with my two cents about the pop ups not that I expect it will do any good.
