Thank you both very much for your responses!

@Brian H - Iíve looked at those tangentially but need to look deeper. I do have a SignaLinc coupler/repeater that Iíve had good results with. Really the only trouble Iíve had is with the SS13A wireless wall switches - with some lights it takes a few tries, despite the TM751 being very close to the switches. But thatís not a major issues in the long run. Iíve ordered some RSS18 switches and will be interested to see if thereís any difference (I expect not). Iíll definitely take a look at those troubleshooting tutorials!

@Tuicemen - Yours is a name I recognize well from the BVC thread! I sent an email to Bill through his website but shortly afterwards discovered his forums are defunct and parts of his website no-longer in operation. That led me to wonder if he checked that email, so I figured Iíd post here. Would be great to hear from him if he is still around! I know Iím in the minority, but Iím not a fan of Alexa and Google and would not choose to have one of those devices in my home. I know my cellphone is already listening to me all the time but I donít need anything else like that, haha. I know that makes me sound a bit crazy, but one of the things I love about the Homeminder is that it doesnít require an internet connection or an app or anything like that. It would be fun to incorporate BVC into the mix without relying on a constant internet connection. I guess I just like things old school! Thanks so much for the response!

Welcome aboard Esgelrothion,
You could always reach out to Bill via email.through his site. Most users have moved to Alexa or Google for voice control. Some like myself have moved away from using a PC altogether for x10.

Welcome to the X10 Forums.
Can't say about Bill but if he or anone that knows more will probably chime in.
If you have not found it yet. JV Digital made some very good accessories. A few may still be available.
I have a few of their devices myself. Like the XTB-IIR coupler repeater. Hits my system with >10V X10 signals and my lowest area is still about 1V, Too bad it is one of the modules no longer made.
His troubleshooting tutorials have given me lots of help over the years.

Hello, everyone! Let me start by saying how grateful I am that this forum exists! Iíve found the answers to so many questions here! I started in HA last year when I bought my first house! I found an old Homeminder at goodwill for only $15 and have been hooked on X-10 ever since. Itís dead simple to use, and the thrill of my lights turning on automatically and motion sensors detecting my presence never gets old. Plus I am a big fan of not incorporating any more Wi-Fi devices into my home than is strictly necessary. Iím soon to incorporate two automatic roller-shades into the system, and I am very excited for that!

While digging through the forums I came across the thread about Billís BVC program, and Iím absolutely gobsmacked! I never knew such things were possible with X-10! It seems like something Iíve just got to try for myself! The ďStar Trek factorĒ alone is incentive enough! It seems like the program is no longer in development, however, and Bill seems to have been absent lo these 15 or so years since that thread was last active. Billís forums also seem to be defunct as well. So, before I go out and purchase a PC (Iím a Mac user) and try and download Windows XP, go out and buy microphones and speakers for each room, etc., I figured it was best to check in here. Iím leery of sending Bill a donation on PayPal through his website for the full version, not because itís not worth it of course, but because Iím not sure if itís still available. Would anyone have any insights? Iíd love to embark on this next stage of my HA journey, but Iím worried Iíve missed the boat by a decade or more. Thanks in advance for any help and guidance!

Found the Dusk/Dawn option. And saved the link to the manual.

I would like to take this opportunity to say the QR code on the WM100 should have been on the front. Donít like unplugging the unit to scan on my mobile device. I have a picture of the code on each of my mobile devices so I can Ďscaní it with the other.  :)

From the manual:

"The Security button is a feature found on
other X10 units (like the MT14A minitimer) that allow the user to make the
home look Ďlived iní and is usually used
when the user is out of town."

"Dawn | Dusk Ė This allows you to create
ON or OFF commands according to your
local dawn or dusk times (this does
require giving the app permission to
know your location."

You can read the whole manual here:

What does the Security option do on a device timer?

How do I get my timers to follow the changes in sunup/sundown?  Tired of changing my timers every week or so.

Thanx for everyone's input.
I disengaged the noise filter (DHC Noise Filter), and still have all the noise showing in "Find Other Computers," but other than the noise that wasn't there before─which is no real problem─all of my X10 modules are back to working.

Did you shut off the breaker that powers the CM-15a and test it from another circuit?
Yes, I did.
