    Sounds like you're using RR in a home network install. I'd love to see what you have for a skin. I've never run X-10 Via RR, but have X-10 experience. First, you probably don't want to switch the indicator just based on the button push. I wait for confirmation from my X-10 controller before my indicators change.

    What controller are you using? Is it a 2-way? Are your X-10 appliances 2-way compatible?

    i show the skin what i make

    the place of have the lamp , i what use the lamp off (white) and the lamp on (yellow) , you are understain , my english is bad

    about if the controller is 2 way , i think yes , i use the software original , and when i turn off the module with remote control , show me in the software that lamp is off .....

    i check the box of controller and say activehome pro 2 way pc interface

    Do you get request only from indicator or other?
    what sets the indicator ON, if the lights are turned on?

    because all indicators are OFF, if you start RR.

    you can do it, on this way:

    it is also possible with BYVARX
