I will be watching this thread with interest, as I too learn how this linking is to be accomplished. I do understand using “Group ” commands, but is there any value to using the EZX10RF to send a “Broadcast” message, by unchecking the “linked” flag in the translation table? From reading about the Insteon protocol, it seems that Broadcast messages have no purpose outside of establishing links, and cannot be used to control devices; is that right? If so, then will simple device commanding like djahn and I want to do, have to use multiple groups, where each group contains only one device? Evidently, the EZX10RF does not support “Direct” messages; is that right?

My main question is — what could be accomplished by NOT checking the “linked” flag in the translation table? There must be some useful purpose to it, or the check-box would not be there.
