I looked over the HG_mini Gerber files and found it is possible to use a basic PCB no need to get one made. Doing this I was able to create a HG-Mini for under $20 CD, however I didn't add the sensors or RF.
I wasn't expecting much firing this up but the HG app does see it and you can add X10 devices even without the RF board attached of coarse they don't do any thing, the light and temperature sensor also display as does the GPIO pins, but again nothing usable with out them attached.
What I am a bit disappointed in is no Web UI. there are 2 ports used but the one displays 'Not found: /' posibly due to nothing connected, the other displays 'This is a Websocket server only!' :(

daveh, I haven't heard how you were progressing.
I've just started to play with ESP boards (esp-01s and a Wemos D1)
I'm wondering just what you used to finally flash the esp8266. I've been using the Ardiuno software and started to play with

I've been playing with a ESP-01 board and the Ardiuno software tools and got pretty comfortable using it. I was about to get a few Wemos D1 boards to maybe try a HG mini build then I looked at platformio.
I could source and assemble these easily enough but I'm totally lost on how to add the platformio stuff. Never even heard of it before now.  ???  Been looking at and everything seems straightforward other than that.
I too am lost with the platformio stuff I tried loading both software options on windows as well as Linux and a Raspi. ::) :`)

Welcome aboard Malmed,
Getting Alexa to control your Activehome keeps getting easier both hardware and software wise.
However there is still no skill available from X10 :(

I took some time and went to my off grid place to do some snow removal. While there I did the DHT 22 and power button mod to the ols style cm15. The RF daughter boards on this cm15 do take up so real estate but yhis didn't  prevent this mod.

I moved to homegenie several years ago, abandoning AHP.
However I also picked up a $5 ZeroW board which handles all my HA needs.
HomeGenie isn't  updated as teguarly as I'd like but at least it is more uptodate then AHP. You may wish to read my cm15/pi mod, were I placed a zero w board inside the cm15. No more need to run a pc for X10 HA.  (Chr)

I was finally able to run AHP Lifejacket on a laptop that the HD wasn't encrypted. It now shows as registered but no luck to
have CM15a working properly. I've downloaded and installed the HomeGenie software. With this software I'm able to program
timers and macro. With it, the CM15a work properly. Thank you for your help, but now I'll stick with HomeGenie.

You may also need to run this in safe mode with admin privleges. As well some users had to use other software to change the drive id.

I've tried AHP lifejacket. It didn't worked. I think that's because my disk is encrypted with Microsoft Bitlocker.
When I ttry to change ID it give me "Error opening drive: Acces denied" See attachment. When I have time I'll un-encryp the
disk and try it again. Also, I need to stop x10nets manually, otherwise it give me "Unable to openx10nets service on this computer"
