X10 Powerhouse Maxi-Controller SC503

I have an X10 home automation "server/hub" that has been running in my home since November 1997. Most of the events in my schedule are controlled by time of day or other programmable events. The few events that I control directly by human input are done using an X10 Powerhouse Maxi-Controller. I realize that my approach implemented over 20 years ago would be unacceptable in this day and age but it was cost effective 20 years ago. :)

I am in the process of moving my "historic" X10 home automation schedule piece by piece to Indigo (a learning curve to say the least but I am enjoying the process and the learning challenge). I am attempting to integrate my Maxi-Controller to Indigo and am stymied by which "Model" to select on the Create New Device panel. The Maxi-Controller sends X10 commands rather than "listening and responding. Some assistance would be appreciated. Please forgive me for dragging you back 20 years.

I have searched the user forum with little success.

It doesn't matter what you select really - it's just a hint to Indigo to tell it what buttons to show in the UI. Just select the "Remote Button - PalmPad" entry and it should be fine.
