There can be a few cable problems also so it will be better if you try and choose another module if you can do that. IF any of the above measures don’t make the system work properly then for sure the main problem will be hidden in the home vision main unit.
The problems stated above usually affect both the system units signal output and signal reception. If the module lights will not blink from any place in the house then you can take it to some other places outside your house and then try if it blinks or not. All these problems which have been stated above are very uncommon and they do not occur very often although there are a few things which almost every x10 user has to face .There might be a case where your home vision might not be able to control your x10 unit properly.
