X10 signals - best way to improve?
« on: September 25, 2005, 09:30:00 PM »

Hi - got a little system set up with several
outdoor MDs (eagle and active), some lap
modules and a chime.  Works nicely for what I
want - BUT of course, lots of outlets don't
play with other outlets.

I am sure that I have all the usual problems
- phase, line noise, and signal stregth.

Before I spend alot of time and $$$, can I
fix the problem cheaply by adding more
transcievers?  Will they work together or
just interfere with each other?

The TM751 Tranceiver has no polite mode and
can step on other X10 signals on the
powerline. If only one is receiveing and
sending then all maybe well. Some folks like
the WGL v572ab all house code receiver in a
central place as it has a much better
recpetion distance. Though line signanls
would still have to get all through the
house.
