endless Extended Code 0 37
« on: October 28, 2016, 11:11:30 AM »

I'm hopelessly committed (30 years) to X10 in two houses and new to AHP but appreciative of the work that went into its resurrection.

One AHP X10 (virtual) module (C5)  to some incandescent ceiling lights started issuing an endless train of "extended code 0 37" statements at a rate of 1/second.  This seems to lock out any other control functions. Deleting the module, opening and closing AHP or operating the physical switch had no effect on this stream.

Suggestions are appreciated.

Do you have a repeater type X10 phase coupler and what model?
This Wiki section references a power line Status Request commands with some X10 repeaters.
May or may not apply to your issue.

I see you have tried a few tests. Did you try unplugging the CM15A and see if anything changed.

Brian,

I unplugged the CM15A, removed the batteries and reconnected. That seems to have stopped the EC 0 37 stream (interspersed with gratuitous "all lights off" commands) . My Monterey X10 signal analyzer confirms The AHP logs.

Thanks for the reply.

More: Is it possible that a Pro module, with extended code capability, misapplied to an older (No EC)  switch, may cause the EC 0 37 stream?

I am not very familiar with the X10 Extended Codes and have not been able to find the EC 0 37 message information.
Most of the X10 modules are not two way so they don't respond to status request messages.
Are your modules X10 or X10Pro or another brand like the ACT PCC or some of the Smarthome X10 Clones that are two way?

If you have an  X10 phase coupler repeater. As a test. You may want to try turning it off if the message firestorm starts again.
