I would like know the success people have had with phase coupling? The document I read stated that if certain outlets do not respond to X-10 commands then you may have an out of phase problem. To test this they suggested turning on the dryer or oven since they are 220v and this would link the both 110v phases. I have tried turning on both and still cannot get certain outlets to respond. They were all in the living room where my T.V. is plugged in, so i bought an A.C. filter from Radio Shack to see if this would didn't. Does it sound like I'm wasting my time with a phase coupler since It did'nt responed with the oven and dryer both turned on?
Also, Chris if you could also e-mail me your instructions for install. My friend is a certified electrition and would install it for me, but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
