Communication on a specific circuit
« on: May 09, 2006, 05:20:12 PM »

I am having a problem with a wired mini controller on part of a 15A circuit. It contains a string of outlets that are all wired correctly but it will only "talk" to certain modules on that circuit only. The strange thing is that I have a CM115A plugged into that same circuit and when using a wireles remote, The CM115A communicates with everything in the house. I installed an XPCP in the panel to "bridge" the two phases but, still have the same problem. F.Y.I. the wired mini controller is at the "end" of that string of outlets. Any ideas?

Any electronic devices like a computer TV etc on any of the outlets? They can make noise that can disrupt X10 signals or suck them up.

They say that having a power strip/surge suppressor on the line can interfere. It seems that I has an issue like that, myself, but can't remember at the moment. Is the mini controller plugged into such a power strip, perhaps?
