I discovered that I have a brand new X10 Ninja base ( have any good software suggestions, or know if there is a way to interface it with ZM (the PTZ functionality, not the camera itself)?

Check out this site:

Scroll down for links to a description of the reverse-engineering that was involved and sample code for controlling the Ninja Pan/Tilt (CR14A).

Thanks for the info...that guys website has an awesome amount of information on X10 stuff. I emailed him with an offer of free hosting so he could move it off of geocities.

That aside, it looks like a third party program controlling the ninja base is do-able. The only thing I read which concerned me was that basically although he was able to control the base, he was not doing it wirelessly, rather he had a wired connection from a protoboard to the base.
