....the CM19A sends a RF signal to a transceiver, then the transceiver sends signal to cameras through PLC....that part works fine, prob is between the Motion Sensors and the CM19A

So the the motion sensors can reach the TM751. And your CM19A can reach the TM751. It's just the motion sensors can't reach the CM19A. Since you've already tried the antenna extention.... all you need to do is get the antenna to the same location (or very near) the TM751.

Sometimes just getting the device further away from the computer will help. If you have a USB extention... you might give it a try.

Why not get a TM751 to experiment with? It will take the RF from the sensors and place it on the power line!
Yes there are better transceivers out there but this is the cheepest to experiment with!
You can place it as close to the sensors as needed (provided there is an outlet there)!
House construction varies so much that even foil backed insulation will stop RF signals from getting to your desired location!
A repeater may not be your best solution (depending on location of your sensors)!

The latest TM751 units have an improved RF receiver in them in fact it is the same one as in the CM15A. Though with the longer antenna it is very good at distances or at least mine is.
