Looks like a dream come true! I think I will be ordering the new IR
commander form X10 today. Since it runs through the exsisting firecracker
interface, then I dont even need another port to hook it through. I hope
someone figures out how to get MH to work with it. But sinceit is from X10,
I am sure that will be no prob..

I'm wondering if anyone here uses the TV probe seen in the Smarthome
catalog. Apparently, the probe controller allows a PC to query via ASCII
and see if, say, the TV is on.
I would definitely want active state monitoring before getting into
PC-based TV/VCR/Cable box control.
Oh, and the MP3Anywhere 2000 is *way* susceptible to nearby microwave
ovens, and I swear someone near me must have one of those 2.4GHz cordless

Some of my code is giving an error when it tries to run.
The error is something like:
Error in exec code get_url http://www.slashdot.org/slashdot.xml
I think the problem is that it cannot find Perl...
When I go to the bin directory and type:
I get a message that it cannot execute get_url.
If it type:
perl get_url http://www.slashdot.org/slashdot.xml
it works fine.
I tried to modify the slashdot code to have the word 'Perl' in front of the
new process ='perl get_url ...'
and it give me the error when starting Mr. House that it cannot find the
executable perl get_url...
Shouldn't I be able to just type the get_url without the program 'perl' in
front of it? isn't that what the #!/usr/bin/perl is for?
I'm using Linux, and I'm new to it... is there something in the Linux
configuration that I need to do?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I can think of 3 possible causes of why you can not run get_url from the
- Your perl is not installed where the header of get_url specifies
- You didn't run the mh/bin/configure script after unziping mh. Among
other things, this will chmod +x bin/*. Without this, linux will not see
the code as executable.
- Your current directory is not in your path, so you must type ./get_url,
not get_url. I think this is the way most linux distros do it.
The most common cause of not being able to run mh/bin programs from withing
mh is not starting mh from the mh/bin directory. Could that be your case?
