I installed an Ocelot and SECU16IR the other day and have finally gotten a chance to play around with it now. I am using Homeseer and the ADIOcelot plugin to make this happen via the PC as I have not looked at the CMax side of things yet.
When I run an event from the machine or via PalmPad remote I see all kinds of activity on the PSC05 and the Ocelot but nothing happens at the switch level. If I change my interface back to the Smarthome USB Powerlink (plugged in next to PSC05)everything works as it did.
The Ocelot has a green x10 light that will change to red and orange during commands and the PSC05 is solid red and then blikning as it should be.
Is there some type of setup in CMax that needs to be done or something special? I also tried to just issue simple A1 AON commands from the Cmax stuff and those also do not work. I thought the Ocelot was the answer to a periodic 1132Cu hangup but now I am wondering.

So you're saying that the PSC-05 "blinks as it should"? Just to be sure: normally its LED is always on, and will blink off whenever the Ocelot is transmitting X10 (or when the PSC-05 is receiving from another device on the power line).

Now, if you start up C-Max and once you attach to the controller, go in the X10 utilities and select "Monitor X10". Do you see X10 activity (with the most recent at the top) whenever you use a palmpad or whatever to send X10 on the power line? A command pair should make the PSC-05 LED blink off twice, and you should see two commands in the monitor screen.

If that works, then try the "Send X10" utility...but close the "Monitor X10" window first! To send a A/1 On command pair, click on radio buttons "A" and "1" and click on "Send". Then click on "A" and "On" and click on "Send" again. You should see the PSC-05 LED blink off each time you click on Send, and the light switch at that address should respond after the second command.

Thanks Guy - Good News and Bad News. I took the laptop down to the basement so I could check it out and the Ocelot is working from Cmax. the issue appears to be the HS plugin. Maybe I should start programming all of my devices and macros into the Ocelot directly. Can't I then remove them from HS and replace them with variables that will show if they are on or off?

I don't use Homeseer myself so I can't really help you with this, but I'm sure the fine folks on the Homeseer forum can get you up and running by posting a question there.
