My involvement with xPL has come to an end. Automation has moved on considerably over the past few years, and it is now possible to buy a stand-alone controller off the shelf for a reasonable price, without having to spend hours writing your own code.

This website is being maintained as a record of my xPL development work up until 2011.

I have released the full source code of all my xPL projects into the public domain. You can download the archive from here.



xPLMCE is an add-in for Windows XP Media Center Edition that brings the power of xPL to your Media Center PC.

xPLMCE sends and receives xPL messages, providing full control of media playback via xPL, as well as enabling home automation devices such as lights to respond to Media Center events.

A full description, configuration instructions and details of operation can be found in the Media Center section.

Support is provided through the xPL Forums.
