I am using a new EZsrve with v 1.51 firmware, and SHN utility 1.77.
I can operate an X10 controlled light from the EZSrve interface.
When I send XML from SHN Utility, the light does not operate.
e.g. Trying to turn on A6
When I use the higher-level XML for X10, the response is slightly different (suggesting to me I have misinterpreted the X10 translation table in the EZBridge manual), but the light still does not operate. Like this:
I have successfully controlled Insteon-controlled lights by sending XML.
Looking at the devices3.xml on the EZSrve confirms that the light I am trying to control via XML is indeed X10, A06, here is a snippet:
Office#Light A06 X10 1
Thread http://simplehomenet.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=332 seemed like a similar problem, but didn’t provide any additional insight. That discussion seems to suggest that I should see all x10 traffic on my home network reflected in the log, but I see only the direct responses to the xml that I send.
Thanks for any help.AnonymousInactiveJune 20, 2008 at 1:33 amPost count: 1001
Where you specified 6 try
06. There was a post on a different forum that was solved by specifying the full unit number. Don’t know if it would help here.AnonymousInactiveJune 20, 2008 at 2:15 amPost count: 6
The behavior is the same — no light and the XML response from the EZSrve is identical

First, here are the available commands
“All-Lights-OFF”, “Status=OFF”, “ON”, “Pre-Set:Bright”, “All-Lights-ON”,”Hail-Acknowledge”, “Bright”, “Status=ON”,”Extended-Code”,”Status-Request”, “OFF”, “Pre-Set:Dim”,”All-Units-OFF”,”Hail-Request”,”Dim”, “Extended-Data(analog)”
Note that they are case sensitive. Use the higher level command. When you use the low level, you can send the raw hex, but you need to send first the house unit, then the house / command code. Timing is important as well – we take care of that with the high level command.
You can also use the raw hex with the command for the high level.
So, try the following:
With the high level command, don’t use the leading zero.AnonymousInactiveJune 20, 2008 at 4:22 amPost count: 1001

I have already mentioned to Paul the XML Samples showing SendX10 example with On is out of date.AnonymousInactiveJune 20, 2008 at 7:46 amPost count: 6
Thanks, “ON” instead of “On” worked
