remembered something else - my communication reliability with X10 protocol went
way up with misterhouse being the only transmitter - all my RF signals come back
through the W800RF32A module rather than RF -> X10 over the powerline. As a
result there is no opportunity for collisions, and no need for collision
detection - something the protocol lacks.
Thanks a ton, everyone. I
will give the "all off" test a try and see what it's looking like.
will also report back as soon as I see a problem with mine, and try to see if
it matches anyone else's problems, troubleshooting, how to fix it, etc. Just
out of curiosity, what type of module is say, more reliable than the cm11, any
of the Insteon, smarthome, etc? How easily are they implemented? How about the
MH code for these other modules?
