I don't know if there are any real USB CM11s out there but mine came with a serial-USB converter which worked just fine.

I would go with the cm11a standard serial version. It is the best tested/known working version, and a usb to serial converter can be purchased for less than $20 in most cases. And with cm11a's selling on e-bay, for $5 to $10 a piece. It is a very economical solution. I use one of these with a Trendnet usb to serial adapter on my test system, and it works well.

Hope That Helps you out!!

The CM15 does not work - definitely stick with the CM11A

I think in the future I may try to get CM15 support going, but they offer very little over a CM11A, and are much more expensive.

Is that future in progress?
The CM11 stopped production some time ago.
The CM12 (Usb CM11) Is currently in 'End of life' so one stocks are sold they too will be no more.

So its down the the CM15,

The is especially true due to the majority of Zwave devices either failing to comply with Australian Standards or failing to find a Distributor. So X10 for us it seems. At least for the moment.

Thank You

I too would like to see the cm15 work with this system.  I am currently installed LMCE and i am a new user.  But i do have all the x10 products and would like to integrate them into this system.  Any progress updates on the cm15 would be great.
Thanks.

I am going on a 10 day vacation starting today, but I have been working on the CM15A. It is a ways out yet, but support should be done by 0804
