How does the MR18A work?
The MR26A comes with a remote that transmits standard X10 RF. Does the
MR18A also come with such a remote? If so, you can probably achieve the
same thing with the MR18A. I can't remember the serial port 'sniffer' I
used (I'll look for my old posts), but once hooked up it was pretty
trivial to see the patterns of traffic.
One other bit if barely related stuff, I just installed an updated (to
me) version of the Firecracker software (I wanted to print some PlamPad
labels) and I noticed the setup now allows for the configuration of some
"Firecracker Receiver" on a com port? I couldn't find anything new on
the X10 website, maybe they're going to market the MR26A?
