**19 Oct. 2009 - I've been fighting with a CM11A and two X10 appliance relays and I have come to the conclusion that X10 is old technology which should be taken out behind the shed and put down.  It looks like noise on my power lines is causing the appliance relays to turn 'ON' whenever they feel like.  LMCE is not the cause.  I'll need to try ZWave or Insteon some time I've got disposable cash.

= Network Map =
+
*This map may seem rather complicated at first but is built this way out of necessity.  I had a pre-existing network which serves my parents and my wife and I.  The existing network had to remain stable throughout my learning curve with LMCE and could not be down for a 4 hour re-install, or more...  As I am able, and stability permits, I will migrate devices to the LMCE network.
+
*The Ubuntu NAS exists within both networks to serve files to PCs in the original network as well as the LMCE network, it's also my original Mythtv backend.
+
*The laptops attach wirelessly to the LMCE network to run Windows Orbiter.
