Can you post the contents of the timers here?    I have 3.306 and several lamp and appliance modules have multiple timers (like on @6:15 AM weekdays, off at 8:00 AM weekdays) then on at dusk and off at 1:00 AM daily) and they all work.

Okay, now the light worked. We came home later in the evening tonight and the light was on!. Difference was the tv was not on during the scheduled time. Could the tv have anything to do with the lamp module not working?
I'm sorry for being so naive. But I just ordered about 140.00 of this stuff ( lamp modules, light switches, motion sensors and chimes) I look forward to learning all I can
I appreciate all your help here.

Thanks Dan and Tuicemen

In the real world, the only constant is change.

When I'm online you can find me in the Home Automation Chat Room!

Darrell,
Do a search and read all you can on noise issues.
You most likely need a filter for the TV.
Also read up on phase issues this may not be a problem now but may become a issue as your system grows.
Home automation isn't direct out of the box stuff.
In order to make it work reliable you need to do a bit of work!
