I am a very newbie to LinuxMCE. I have Linux Mint installed as a dual boot system on one of my computers. I am totally new to LinuxMCE. I borrowed an X10 system from a friend who was unable to get this system to work for him in an older house with older wiring. I want to try this out, but i do not have the AHP PC Interface software. Does the Active Home Pro 2 way pc interface work with LinuxMCE?
If it does work, please answer my next questions....... I have a windows xp sp3 and Linux Mint installed in a dual boot enviroment. I don't want to mess with the myth tv. I read that I will need two ethernet cards, but I think that was for myth TV. Is this so, or do I need two ethernet cards to use LinuxMCE to control the x10 devices?
Will LinuxMCE continue to control the lights after I turn off the computer that controls the lighting devices. I read about one other software program that only controls the various devices when the computer is on........
thanks for the help!!
