Homegenie is the best home automation software I know and i want to use it for all my componets.
I try the the Control.Level Option for my X10 Marmitek Shutter. But it doesn't work.
On/Off is no problem.

Does anyone have an idea or is this a bug or not possible?

Best regards

Hi Andi,

I have SW12 modules in use, probably the same you gonna use, and they make use of extended X10 commands to position the blinds. Extended X10 commands are not supported by homegenie.  A long time ago I had some exchange with Gene about it, I haven't been successful in controlling SW12 with DIM Commands.

I thought about using the mochad driver for that purpose but had no time to investigate further.

If you like to give it a try there's a PDF added with the information like
