Setting INSTEON device X10 address with Indigo

Is it possible to remotely set the X10 address of an INSTEON device using Indigo 7? I have set the X10 address of several of my INSTEON devices by using the SET button and sending 3 successive ON commands with an X10 maxi controller. However, I'd like to be able to set the X10 address of an InLineLinc module in a ceiling light without having to disassemble the light fixture.

I don't believe there's a remote way to change X10 addresses, though it's been so long I don't remember exactly.

What Jay said. I don't believe that has ever been possible.

Re: Setting INSTEON device X10 address with Indigo

Thanks guys. The reason I set X10 addresses on some of my INSTEON devices is that when there is a power failure and we are using our generator to power the house, INSTEON does not work well or at all. I believe it's either because of the harmonic distortion of the 60 Hz waveform or due to generator noise on the line. X10 doesn't have a problem when on generator.
