    Hi sablade

    Do you need to be able to switch them on from just one room, or all five rooms?

    X10 and an IR controller will allow you control then from a single location. But if you want control from anywhere with your PDA then you'll need multiple IR rewceivers or one plus 4 repeaters.

    Alternatvely you could use wireless RF instead of IR and control then all with a single transceiver (provided it's within range). You wouldn't be able to use your PDA in this scenario.
