OH yes reread your post. XPDF is for standard lights only as it also dims. No motors or low voltage lights should be used.

on the low voltage im using SR227 in wall out let and low volt power pack is plugged in to the SR227 via 110v plug comming out of the power pack as if it were being plugged into regular wall outlet no problems so far with this set up its been like that for years "everything is fine since the phase coupling repeater was installed . the only thing left is the room with the aquarium as long as the light is on, it is turning closet light on and only on it will never turn it off i have to do that.

Ah. SR227 good choice.
You still may have a marginal signal where the problem light is. Did the filter on the problem aquarium light help at all?

didn't receive the good yet should arrive Friday 28th looking forward to hooking it up to see if it solves the problem! I got to tell you , that aquarium sure does cause alot of malfunctions with the X10 products, we will see  if the noise filter will solve this frustration.

well got all the goods and the noise filter didn't solve the noise problem, still some lights are comming on by them self, never turning off. not as bad as before "light comming on less often. still when the tank light light is set to the off, everything is working propper. any other suggestions on the noise problem????????????????does anyone think if i put a surge protector/noise filter " monster cable " makes a " surge protector/ noise filter " first then the noise filter may solve problem,  open for suggestions here willing to try anything here

filter is in. problem is intermintent, but lights in room with tank will respond sometimes and other times wont"ac power cord is plugged into filter, filer into a/c outlet. lights will still come at will. the phase coupling/ repeater , if i watch it it will show signals passing throw it only when tank is on when thank is off you don't see any signals

Then you need to do further testing. There's something else causing noise, and one or more additional XPPFs will be needed.

OK.

Try this: Plug a cube tap into the XPPF, then plug both the filter and the tank light into the cube tap. The light is the other noise producer.

A cube tap is a unit that allows you to plug 3 cords into a single outlet. They are sold by Home Depot, Lowe's, Wal-Mart and other retailers. They are not switched, either.

Filter system in not a issue i can leave that plugged in, at night i turn off tank light by the switch, and at that point i show no signals in the phase coupling/repeater, when turn on i see red & green lights passing the phase coupling

My guess at this point is the light is the noise generator.
