X10 Control Reliability / Re: Random failures

Both the XTBM and XTBM-Pro monitor noise continuously, and the display shows the level at the present time.  If the noise does read zero on the XTBM-Pro at the switch when it toggles, then noise is probably not the culprit.

Every command logged showed 0 noise.

I replaced the CS277 with a new one and replaced the WS477 with a PLW03. Lights have been on for 9 hours now with no problems. We will see if they stay on all night.

I love my XTBM but I'm getting jealous of the diagnostics the Pro model apparently has.   ;)

The fact that the XTBM-Pro doesn't log the command means it might be caused by powerline noise, and is not actually a valid command.  It is possible that the switch is controlling a noise source or there is a noise source nearby on the same circuit.  What does the XTBM-Pro show for the noise level at that switch when the switch is both off and on.  You can use the expanded noise readout to get the three voltage readings.

Remote chance the S1* Companion is doing strange things. If you can safely disconnect the companion and see if anything changes.
Manual paddle changes will not send an X10 command on the power lines so the XTBM Pro would not see any commands.

S1 A5 just went off again. No activity logged.

OK guys. Paid big bucks for the XTBM Pro.  Had it plugged in to the socket next to my Controller. All outside lights on. Looking through the history it shows the On commands for A02, A05 and A01. Went next door for something and when I came back the A5 pair controlled by S1 were off. XTBM showed no activity.

I'm happy it continues to perform well for you Jeff.

I believe most issues are in the initial setup of the bridge, however with the HA-Bridge continuing to get improvements users may be tempted to update it before I can include it in a new build.
This may result in some issues popping up before I see them.
I added a bug report section as well for Alex10 though I suspect most issues will be with the bridge setup as they have been in the past.
I test the new versions of the bridge in my setup prior to adding them to an update of Alex10 so the bridge version in it can be a bit behind. :(

My breaker box cover has a diagram on it showing each position and what buss it connects to.
So opening up may not be needed.

Thank you for your wonderful support getting Alexa to work with X10.  I haven't changed anything since I originally got it working with your help, and it continues to work well.
