I'm soliciting advice from more experienced users regarding my existing ActiveHome Pro software in light of the current situation with X10, X10usa, or whoever:
I currently have (well, had) an extensive control system impemented with ActiveHome Pro (albeit, it's rather "klunky" given the inherent limitations of the ActiveHome Pro software). This included control of HA devices as well as XCams and Ninja Pan and Tilt camera mounts. Recently, I was using an X10 VA12A Digital Video Converter with the AHP platform to test some cameras, and all was good until something happened that resulted in the VA12A no longer being recognized. (I'm not sure whether the device failed or the driver went south). Anyway, in trying to resolve that, I intended to re-install the driver and AHP software, in hopes of clearing up any corruptions (which was a typical failure mode in the past). So, I un-installed AHP. Well, that was a major shot in the foot, because I was unaware at the time that X10's registration servers for AHP were no longer in operation! So, now I'm unable to re-install my copy of AHP. And, as far as I can tell, there's no way to re-install AHP without the server-based validation.
With that background info, my question is this: What is my best option at this point to either get AHP back up and running properly -OR- to install (a) different software package(s) that will provide at least the same functionality (including the camera control and video viewing), and ideally, would be able to directly import or else convert my existing AHX files (to avoid having to re-program my existing control system from scratch)?
Thanks in advance for all helpful insights and advice! :-)
