I am new to X10 and need some help with my
wall switches (WS467).  I cant seem to get
them to turn on when I flip the switch in
AHP, but if I turn it on in the room on the
wall then flip the switch off in AHP the
light will turn off.  Help!!!!

This problem usually only happens with wall
switches. It could be that you have a low
level of noise or interference in the area
where the switch is installed that prevents
the On command from getting through. When the
light turns on, the noise is thinned out off
to to allow the Off command to work. You
might try and turn off other electronics or
electrical devices in the area. Also make
sure the bulb in the light is in good shape.

I've discovered a simular problem, you might
try this.  I have a dimmer switch next to a
3 way switch, the remote only works when the
lights controlled by the 3 way are off.
interested to see if you have the same
results.

Could also be a marginal signal if the AHP
controller is on the other phase of the
house wiring. If you have a 200 volt device
like a dryer. Turn it on and see if things
get better. If so you need a phase coupler
between the houses two phase hot wires.

Actually my message should have said a 220
Volt Device?
