When setting up the X10 light and appliance control
for my house I could not successfully create the
propper IR codes even with the code generator
program advertised throughout these forums.

The Ocelot does not respond automatically to any IR code and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the documentation for CodeGen™ should lead anyone to believe otherwise. The Ocelot is not mentioned anywhere in the CodeGen™ documentation nor can it be selected within the program itself. And, CodeGen™ is free so your claim that it is "advertised throughout these forums" is rather misleading.

You must learn IR codes with the Ocelot and then you must program it to respond to those IR codes. I guess someone who couldn't bother to read the CodeGen™ documentation is also unlikely to read the Ocelot documentation.

You can use any codes you wish (as long as they do not conflict with others) to control your lights. The more codes you ask the Ocelot to recognize, the slower is its response as it must look through that number of codes for a match. Sony codes tend to be shorter and work well as triggers for this type of activity.
