I've been using the mx-3000 with ir543 for almost a year now with no problems. Just recently, I have not been able to control my lights (module 2) or stairs (module 5) with my mx-3000 via IR543. However, I can still control all modules with my X-10 palm remote so I know the x10 is still working. When I press the correct buttons on the IR-543 itself, I still cannot get a response from my lights nor stairs, but the other modules respond accordingly. Has anyone else had this problem? My guess is I need to replace my IR-543, but I suppose I just need some validation or advice from others who may have encountered this. Thank you -

Move the IR543 to another outlet and see if it works. My guess is that something near the IR543 is absorbing signal or creating noise.

Wow! Something so simple, but it worked. I feel sheepish now, I thought it would be something more complicated and didn't even think about interference since I have so many filters installed already. The other outlet fixed the problem and everything is working like normal. I guess I need to go over all my things and make sure filters on everything. Thank you for your reply!

I've run across similar issues in the past.
My troubleshooting usually begins with "have I installed anything new"?
The last time I was having a X-10 issues it turned out it was my new laptop that was causing the problems. I had it plugged into a non filtered outlet. I unplugged it and and the X-10 was back to normal. A new filter solved that issue.
Now those dimmable CFL's are my next problem. The buzzing is driving me nuts.
