Most common issue with Powerline X10 is noise. All I can suggest is to keep looking. There have been a few folks on the Cocoontech forum from Australia in the last couple of months. Some of them appear to be service companies addressing issues with the OmniPro 2 panel. Much of the 30 plus years old stuff was using powerline X10...so maybe PM one of those folks relating to purchasing X10 stuff?
Do you have any x10 light / appliance modules. You can maybe plug one in close the X10 PM to see if you can trigger it. The appliance module has a loud relay inside that you would hear triggering.

I'm not sure of the electrical grid type in your homes, but here in the US, we need to use a phase coupler to jumper the two 120 volt phases in a typical 220 volt breaker box system. Might want to google X-10 phase coupler for your voltage system.

Australia uses 230V single phase power.
Either your X10 powerline interface is putting out a weak signal, or more likely, there is something else in your house that is generating noise or filtering out the signal. It could be anything from LED bulbs, a UPS, TV set or any device with electronics.
One way to narrow it down is to shut off everything at the breaker panel except for the 2 circuits that the X10 signal has to work across, and see if that works. If it does, then start turning other circuits back on one at a time and see when it stops working. Then, start disconnecting individual devices until you find what's causing the problem.
