I have a Dalite Cosmopolitan Electrol screen (thanks to Jason @ AVS) and want to control it via IR (or IR-> X10 as I have a converter) and I'm wondering if anyone has solved this problem.

I know Dalite makes a $300+ IR kit for it, but thats a bit much IMO, and it requires converting the power transformer.

So, I have the included 3 way switch controlling it now. It has 3 wires coming in -- one hot(white), one up(red), and one down(black). So, I need an IR or X10 switch that will allow me to short out either white & red OR white & black.....and prevent both red and black from getting juice at the same time.

Does anyone know what can do this? I thought about wiring x10 light switches on each line but that causes the possibility of both getting current. So, I need an "A or B" switch.

Any help would be appreciated!

Search the forum for an old thread about using an X10 module with an SPDT relay to do this exact thing... I know I posted in the thread, but I don't remember if I started it or not.

Ahh, here we go.

If you need a better explanation, feel free to PM me as I don't check in here too often now that I have a screen and it works...
