Ok..I looked through the threads, and played with software LOTS...
I have an IR-543...programmed the Harmony and YEARS ago...now I need to update it...
I want to send a X10 - IR543 C1-Off and later a C1-on
I ALSO need to send, seperately some other commands such as c2-off, c2-on etc...
I see where to add the device, but it doesn't give any options of the commands (or addresses) to send...
Where do I establish the addresses?

I found it... wow is it a pain... no wonder my old commands were short, what I thought would be 2-3 lines was 4-6 lines
It was not obvious where it was or how to add commands
I might be able to shorten it...1 off 2 3 4 on, but I know this works

There is another way, but it's complicated to set up. The JP1 community has created a custom X10 "hacked" protocol which sends unit number and command in a single function. I learned all 300 or so of these "hacked" commands so I can do C3 OFF with a single command. To do this, you'll need a JP1 remote and a JP1 cable for teaching your harmony, or a kind soul to post the pronto hex. Then either load the pronto hex using Concordance or get logitech support to do it. I'm a relatively kind soul, but not kind enough to capture and convert 300 commands to pronto hex. I am kind enough to let you copy them from my profile. So if you still get free tech support from logitech, PM me and I'll tell you the account you can copy them from.
There is a possibly simpler solution. If it works in your situation, you could just use AllOff and AllOn followed by just the few units that are different. So your example would be AllOn, 1 Off.

I tried the all off/on route....it was a bit jarring as this is for the theater room...dim the lights, turn on the sofa lights, turn on the vetalation, etc...so an all off makes it kind of dark until all the comands catch up...
I was hoping to be able to send a 1-off and a 2-on fast enough that the two smart devices would cross dim nicely over 2-4 seconds...not easy to do with the logitech.... but it works and that is enough for now...
