The other CM11A quit talking......... It also would not respond to the commands I sent from the miniconsole. As you recall I have downloaded a fast macro to the interface.

I power cycled it and rebooted the computer and it works again.

A macro with a repeating loop..... can tie-up and stall the CM11A. An example would be: A1 triggering B2, with B2 then triggering A1. So the macro runs repeatedly forever and nothing else can work. You may have created a bad macro.

Well, I don't think I have that, and I don't see how that can work. When I tried to make a macro G2 which was my module, it wouldn't let me.  So I have two Macros for G1, one on and one off.  The G1 on sends a G2 on and 45 minutes later a G2 off.  The G1 off sends a G2 off.  And that's it. 

It doesn't seem possible to make a loop. I got an error message when I tried.  This is with Activehome, not pro.

There is some information on the CM11A reliability on this web site.
http://www.idobartana.com/hakb/index.htm
You can see the topics avilable in the Left Pane.
CM11A Reliability is one of the choices.
Another choice is an overheating CM11A.

Was the CM11A unresponsive if you just rebooted the computer and did not cycle the CM11As power?
As there are know issues with some serial communications to it when using Windows XP. Even with the Compatibility settings.

I don't think it's a serial communications issue with the CM11a.

It didn't respond to the miniconsole commands either. 
I think the whole module stopped working.

It does sound like it is locked up and not a serial communications issue.

The CM11A is connected to the computer when it happens?

If it is not connected to the computer. Is the serial cable hanging off of the CM11A. I have seen reports that a loose serial cable hanging from the CM11A can cause it to go to sleep so to speak.

It hasn't happened again.
