Best of all there is no X10 to answer your
questions.  The people who had macro and
timer failures stopped complaining.
Trying to be nice also proves not to help.

JP - the activity monitor is one of the
issues the next update will address. As for
the lights - that is very strange. Usually if
timers are delayed it is because the clock is
no longer synchronized with the real time,
however in most cases you would notice the
timers go off earlier than scheduled, not
later, since the CM15A's clock gains time.
That being said, it is possible, I suppose,
for the CM15A to lose time, in which case you
would see a delay. The puzzling behavior in
your situation is the fact that one set of
lights operate normally while another set are
Question: were A2, A5, A3, and A4 all
supposed to come on at the same time and A3
and A4 were delayed by 2 hours? OR was A2 and
5 supposed to come on at a specific time and
A3+A4 at a different time? If the latter is
the case, then your CM15A must have lost 2
hours in between the time it turned A2+A5 on
and the time it turned the other 2 on. I have
had situations when timers that were
scheduled at 7 PM occurred normally, while
the ones scheduled at 9:30 PM turned on 30
minutes earlier. I am assuming you are
running with the CM15A disconnected from the

thank you for your help.  There is no logic
to justify what is hapening.  CM15A is
connect to the computer, the time of the
interface is OK, A2 and A5 follow the
schedule, A3 and A4 goes suppose to go on
at 8h10 PM but went on at 10h30 PM. It is
the same every day !!!  So that thing is
going crazy !!!

JP: Are those timers stored in the interface,
or run from the PC?
