Paolo, The Macintosh drivers for this device are the standard FTDIUSB  
Serial Drivers which emulate a serial device over USB so the good news  
is that you should be able to connect to the virtual port from  
Revolution on the mac. I am not familiar with the drivers being used  
for windows though.

The thing to look for is the serial emulation since Revolution can not  
handle the USB directly.

AH software has an X10 home automation controller in Revolution: Code  
for controlling the Firecracker CM-11 x10 controller

There are other serial examples as well.
