My ISY 994i does not receive X10 signals from X10 motion Sensor or plugged in X10 controllers. When attempting to verify signal received by the ISY through the ISY event viewer no signal is being is reported. I can verify that both motion sensor and controller function properly. According to ISY customer service the problem may be with the PLM ( all Insteon functions work properly with the ISY) In reviewing the specifications for the Insteon PLM, I can find no documentation for X10 support. Can anyone verify that the Insteon pLM currently being shipped by Smarthome supports X10?
All Insteon PLMs can receive and transmit X10 powerline signals. The X10 motion sensor is RF only. What are you using for an X10 RF receiver?

The CM15A has a X10 RF receiver and transmitter in it.
In the Active Home Pro program for the CM15A. Make sure in the Tools Tab. Hardware Configuration. The House Codes you are using are set to be Transceived. For some reason sometimes the Auto choice doesn't always find your House Code. Use Specific. I picked all sixteen House Codes but you can pick just the ones you are using. If the House Code is not set to be transceived it will not be sent back on the power lines for the ISY994i to receive.
The AHP software does not have to be running after you set the tranceived House Codes. The choices are stored in the CM15A.
X10 power line signals are subject to power line problems. If the CM15A or your plug in controllers are in a different part of the house. The X10 power line signals may not be getting to the ISY994i's PLM.
Can you try one of your plug in controllers on the same outlet as the PLM. To see if it can be detected there.
The PLM was sharing an outlet next to a Smartlinc filter- I am assume that even though the PLM was not in the same plug, the smartlinc filter absorbed the X10 signal. I did not have an problem with Insteon signals, and was surprised it only effected X10. It probably did not interfere with the Insteon signal transmission because of the RF signal capability.
