My Ocelot will no longer send or receive X10. I verified that I have the correct cable and the PSC05 blinks when a x10 signal is sent. I think I remember that the ocelot has a cip for x10. If so, I wondering which one it is.

It is the 16f876 chip right behind the rj-11 jack. Does the 10/IR light illuminate green when the ocelot is connected to the psc05? Have you tried another psc05?

Thanks for the prompt reply. The green light never illuminates. It is usually off, but a few time momentarily red. I have tried another psc05 with the same results. I have another Ocelot, would it be OK to swap chips? Does that chip need to be programmed or is it like the comms chip that can just be swapped

Hi John. There should be no problem swapping just the chip. It is a PIC microcontroller and it handles X10 and IR functions in the Ocelot.

I swapped out the chip from another Ocelot. Applied power and the green light immediately came on. Lights now work fine. Thanks guy and Kevin. What is the procedure for getting another chip?
