Communications failure
« on: December 21, 2005, 11:12:29 AM »

I just moved and reinstalled x10/active
home in my new house in a new PC. For some
reason, after some time the communication
from the PC to the x-10 module stops after
a couple of hours. When I run Test
Communications, it fails. If I exit and
restart Active Home, it comes back.

Is there something I need to do to solve
this issue.

I have downloaded every program/macro at
the interface and all that seems to be
running fine.

the program and restart it whan XP lost the
