    Can Pinpoint monitors interface with PC ?

    Are there any basic monitors out there that can interface with a PC, if so it would be so cheap to make a aquacontroller just using the x10 software and the free jaqua software, does anyone know about this ?

    Nope, they don't interface with computers.
    They don't have any interface ports to enable them to do this.

    Sure... that could always be done. I thought you were asking if they came "out of the box" with that capability.

    It even passed through my mind at one point, but I dropped the idea.
