No I think that X10 have stayed with the original protcol for the main part.

I found Part 3 of the series in June 83, Pg 98, but the Apr and May issues
are hiding somewhere. Apparently Part 1 had some Basic programs to send
commands to X10 units. The unit was discontinued at that time, and the
replacement for the Coco 2 was around the corner I guess.
There is an Assembly language listing but I have 2 pages of hand written hex
values which might mean it was called as a USR(0) routine. Or did I have a
list of Data statements poking values into memory, who knows 20 plus years
Hope that helps someone.
