I'm very interested in details on adding X-10 RF to the OmniRemote. I can supply all of the X-10 RF codes.

I am developing an all housecode transceiver based on the BasicX-24 that should be ready for release in a few weeks. It will be able to capture/decode X-10 RF for ALL housecodes as well as RF from X-10 security devices and Stanley HomeLink garage door sensors.

Here are samples of omniremotes X-10 RF codes. It is for house code "A", Device "1", "ON" and "A", Device "1", "OFF". Do you have an easy way to figure out how they are formated?

I don't know how the OmniRemote RF codes are formatted. I can tell you how all X-10 RF codes are formatted. If you will give me an e-mail address, I can send you VB code that will send all of the RF codes from a parallel port using an RF transmitter such as the Ming TX-66 or the RF transmitter board from any of the X-10 universal remotes. You will need a method for generating delays with microsecond resolution, though. But it will show you how the codes are sent. It's very, very simple.

The RF protocol is the same as the original NEC IR protocol except it uses an RF carrier (310MHz in North America - 418MHz and 433MHz in Europe). You can find a description of the NEC protocol at...


The two data bytes are the same as the 3rd and 4th bytes detailed in the Firecracker protocol on X-10's web site at...


I capture and decode them with a Ming RE-66 RF receiver and a BasicX-24.

There's also a DIY project by Stewart Baker who built his own Palmpad like device using a PIC to generate the IR codes and an RF transmitter to send them. It also shows how to generate the codes. Here's a URL...

I'me familur with the Ming units and have always wanted to use them in my X-10 projects. You can find my E-mail listed above. Thanks

The VB code is on it's way.

How about sending me details on the components you added to the OmniRemote Springboard for X-10 RF. I have a Visor and OmniRemote on order.

Any info/parts list you could supply to me in regards to the x10 products would be greatly appreciated.

Cool Stuff...has anyone made an RF module for the Palm that can send X10 codes to a RR501? I thought at first I could interface the FireCracker to the Palm, but from everything I've heard so far, the Palm OS lacks the ability to manipulate the DTR and RTS lines. I have an old Palm Pro laying around that would make a great X10 controller...if only.

If it's not too much trouble, I would also like the list of parts for X-10/OR Springboard mod. Thanks...

If you can wait a while there may be a site detailing this upgrade. Someone has put a lot of time and effort in documenting this and laying it out in a very nice format.

I have just recently been following the thread at modifying the Springboard Omniremote for X10 operation... Has someone consolidated this information? Thanks Dan
