    I just don't get this. I have three dedicated circuits in my theater room. One of these is for my equipment only (TV,DVD,VCR,SAT etc.) The other two are outlets on either wall. My IR543 X10 receiver-transmitter only works on one circuit in the room. It is the one with the least things plugged into it. I really need to put it on the circuit with my equipment so the unit is facing me but it just won't work. All these circuits are on the same leg of the power panel too.
    What is going on? Why will the unit send out the X10 signal on one circuit and not another? It is frustrating and I need a solution. Something must be interfering with the X10 signal on that circuit. Which and why I just don't get.

    Nevermind, found the answer over at smarthome.com.
    Seems many devices in your home suck up the x10 signals and you have to use a filter to isolate them.
