Insteon questions
« on: November 16, 2009, 03:19:20 am »
Hi Folks!

I'm new to LinuxMCE, and am presently getting to know it via a KVM VM on my existing system.  I'm also presently starting to build out a mixed Insteon and X10 network.  I've got a few questions relating to the existing documentation on the Wiki...

Is it still necessary for the 8.10 beta to build out the PLM template with the Ruby codes that are in the WIki?  Source page: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Insteon_-_Setting_Up_PLM_Template

Is it possible to create Insteon scenes in LinuxMCE and have them pushed into the link tables on the devices themselves?

Is the Insteon driver itself still considered beta?  Is the X10 support information on this page still accurate?  http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Running_the_Insteon_PLM_Driver_for_the_First_Time

Thanks for your time!

/Mike

Mike,

While I am waay not the expert on this, you do not need to populate the Ruby codes.  Just select the Insteon template and do a quick reload.

I believe it will start to locate your Insteon devices by itself, but if it doesn't, just put add an Insteon device and watch it go. 

As far as it being beta, my guess is yes since it seems to be a bit touch and go.  (I have lots of difficulty.  After all, I am over 40!).
