Just a thought, and if Jeff is reading this he could chime in or you could email him; perhaps you could use a two-prong adapter on the PLM and plug it directly into the Boost Port on the front of the XTB-IIR.  Unless Jeff recommends against that it should solve the problem.

Years ago there were reports that SmartHome controllers did not work well when plugged into the Boost input.  So  I don't recommend the Boost input for anything other than a standard X10 transmitter, such as a Mini or Maxi Controller or TM751 transceiver.  Just plug the PLM into a nearby outlet and use the XTB-IIR for both a passive coupler and a high power signal booster.

X-10 automation since the BSR days

So, I moved the P2/PLM from the north side to the south side of the house, just above the electrical panel. My problem areas moved from the south to the north. Intermittent wireless commands from the palm pilot and poor response from light modules controlled by the P2/PLM. I tired moving my filters around and unplugging things, and then it hit me.   -:)  The south side is mostly the kitchen, and when last renovated I added some accent lighting consisting of LED modules and LED ropes. I had been so focused on wall warts.  :' I put one of my custom filters in series with the Led power plug, and now ALL my problems have gone.  ;D

Now, I just have to retrace my steps, and see which of the other filters are unnecessary.
