OK, I am getting reading to deploy X10 in my apartment but I have this issue. I want to control lights in 2 different rooms via my pronto. What would be the most efficient way to do this? Get an IR extender so that signals sent in the room WITHOUT the 543 would be routed to the room with it?? Or get an IR->RF->IR converter setup?

HOw would I go about this?

All you need is 1 IR543 in your living room. The IR543 transmits X-10 through your whole house not just the room you are in. Letís say your living room light is on A1 and your bedroom is on A2. You could turn your bedroom on or off from your living room (as long as the porntos IR reaches the IR543). Now if you wanted to use your pronto in your living room and bedroom, you would need to get a IR extender (xantech) or get another IR543 to mount in your bedroom. Most people use the xantech since they also control other devices in their living room like DVD, VCR, DSS etc. to cut down on cost of equipment. You canít use 2 IR543 at the same time ,even on different housecodes, because nothing will happen.

Thing is I want to use my remote in multiple rooms so Line of sight/bounce will not work from the pronto to the 543.

OK, I looked at the xantech stuff and it seems pretty expensive for the reciever modules. What exactly is the minimum I need to have in order to relay an IR signal from my bedroom to my livingroom 543 box?

You guys are sure that I can't have two 543's hooked up at the same time? One in the bedroom and one in the living room? I don't think both would ever be able to be activated at the same time so would it matter? Whichever one recieved the IR signal would send out the X10 code right?

Brian,

I think you misunderstood Chris. You can use as many IR543s as you like in your home, but you have to make sure that your Pronto IR commands will only reach one of the IR543s at a time. If an IR command is received by more than one IR543 at the same time, the result will be that nothing happens because the two power line signals collide and cancel.

Tinker,
I would contact that company about the codes. Have you tried to search the net for them? Here are the codes for a One For All remote. Maybe you can get lucky with them, a lot of remotes use there template.

Try these codes for the TV. 047, 135, 019, 018, 029, 038, 090, 174, 278

Try these for the VCR. 240, 051, 045, 053

Chris, Do you have any idea where I can Find the X10 Pro macro controller (PMC10). Thanks in advance for your help.

A better item to look at might be the Adicon 2500 which you can see at: www.smarthomeinc.com. It is around the same money and offers tones more features. Chech it out.

Do this:
Call 813-265-1420, Enter Mailbox #1, Enter Document # 73. This is X-10's Faxback service which will fax you a copy of the owners and installation manuel. This will give you the most info on the PMC10. You could also look here but this is real basic:
[Link: x10pro.com]

I have the PMC10 in stock if you want, I'll sell to you at cost and ship for 5.00 anywhere in USA! The Adicon 2500 is like a Rolls Royce compared to the VW bug that the PMC10 is!

Thanks again Chris, I'm controlling a few X-10 devices with my pronto and the IR543. I'm running out of codes, only one left. Is there any ay that I can keep controlling x-10 devices with my pronto. Does the adicon requires to be run from a computer. I have Xantech for my IR repeaters, conecting Block and emiters.

Thanks

JAH,
Either the PMC10 or the Adicon will allow you to use any IR code to program it and turn IR into X-10. You could use IR codes from equipment you don't own. I use the PMC10 to add a few more functions to my Pronto/X-10 system because I ran out too. I am using the IR codes for an old JVC TV I once had. The TV went bad but the remote still worked. Any IR codes in the File section would work fine as long as they didn't interfere with your A/V system.

Oh, The adicon is a stand along processor. It does not require any computers for operation. It does require one for programing. You can download the software used to program it and check it out if you would like. Here it is:

Does anyone have the preset dim IR codes or code structure for the 543?

I have 2 examples but can't figure out the scheme:

Preset Dim 1 (19%)
0000 006b 000c 0000 00a5 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 01c2 0e10

Preset Dim 2 (71%)
0000 006b 000c 0000 00a5 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 01c2 0e10

Help!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

What I want to know is where are all these discrete codes for the X10 everybody talks about. Speciacally I'm looking for codes for creating scene lighting using the TSC 3000 as the controlling remote. Somebody must have this list someplace, but I can't find it...
