    Can the Treo send any X10 commands? Via the infra red? Any apps that do this?

    If you use HomeSeer, you can go through Blazer I've heard but I don't own HomeSeer to try.

    I don't believe that's possible. X10 uses radio signal to communicate with the receiver. I don't believe there is an adapter that will convert from IR or USB/Serial to a X10 transmitter. It might not be impossible to create one combining a serial hotsync cable with a serial firecracker transmitter. Then software would have to be developed to go along with the hardware.

    One way that I used to use it, was through a simple X10 web interface running on my home webserver, which had the firecracker transmitter plugged into the serial port. Not the most ideal solution though.

    yeah, i don't think it's possible. I use a Visor Platinum with a IR/X10 springboard.
    Ever wonder if those FreeIPOD / FreeMiniMac scam sites work? Well, I found out Have a look at the results:

    There is at least one IR x10 controller. Here is one at www.x10.com:

    There are some Palm applications to learn and send IR signals. But, from what I understand, the Treo 600 IR signal is very weak. And there is no module to generate boosted IR signals.

    I have a Visor Springboard module which not only sends strong IR signals, but also sends wireless RF x10 signals. It works pretty well, but I haven't actually been using it for a while. Guess I should get it going again since my livingroom is a mess of lots of IR remotes and x10 controllers...

    I think you can but you have to give up your SD card slot. There is an SD version of the IR Blaster thingy gives your device great IR range. I don't know if it works with the Treo though. Combine that with an X10 "IR to X10 signal" module and it should work.

    i've written web -> serial x10 command pages that would work well in blazer, but that's a bit more than it sounds like you're looking for.

    Ack, I just searched and found this. It looks like the SD NoviiRemote Blaster does NOT work with the Treo 600 but they are working on a version that does.

    Hopefully the 650 will have bluetooth and we will find a way to interface it with X10...

    I have that IR interface that I use with my TV remote.....that works great but if the signal isn't strong enough with the Treo-it wouldn't be worth giving up the SD slot.

    I SSH into my linux box and control my X10 stuff from a shell command line. I wrote a little shell script menu so I can not have to type too many keys to do x10 stuff.
