That's just your personal opinion and not that of the majority. Every time someone has a problem they automatically consider it "junk", when 90% of the time it's nothing more than operator error. Reception can be distorted by many things including motors running in appliances that are on the same circuit as the camera, as well as your neighbors having either wireless camera's to wireless routers for their home networks.
 I realize that some will be pissed at me for my comments, but I've been an IT person for over 25 years, before most of you even knew what a computer was and have seen it all and then some. It's all about technology, and if you don't take the time to understand and learn about something before or even while you start using it, you're guaranteed to have issues, most of it being operator errors. It's not to say X10 doesn't have issues with some products, afterall, they are mass produced like automobiles and damn near everything else you buy. Now tell me that GM or any other larger corporation hasn't had major issues and recalls far worse than X10 has ever had...... you can't and be honest about it, period.

Well yes and no some of x10's stuff is junk I agree like the VCR Commander II. I'm on my 5th one none of them will even learn the house codes right out the box. Had a regular VCR Commander tried it seemed to work fine put it back in the box took it out about 6 months latter after I bought more equipment and it apparently broke itself while setting in the box, failed to learn house codes and wouldn't accept programing for the vcr remote. Now as for the cameras they work perfectly, I just love the floodcam!! but what good is it if one of the key components is defective. And yes I know how to set this stuff up I've done it so many times I think I could do it in my sleep now. So yes quality is definitely an issue not with everything but with enough!! Last example had to send my DS7000 back 4 times before I got one that worked properly. Some of this stuff is fantastic and very imaginative I believe the designs are basically solid I just think it's a quality control issue as with most electronics made in CHINA.

Most likely you have interference problems.
I just posted the following message under "Interference of X-10 Equipment" thread:
