Kudos to SH for doing this the right way... they are offering prepaid shipping or cross-shipping with prepaid return shipping so you truly have no outage or shipping costs.
Thanks Mike,

Most people figured I was snorting something when I talked about my V2 ApplianceLinc failures.

Glad SH did the right thing on this. I appreciate it.

I didn't as I also had the same problems. I was told by their Technical Support folks. I was one of the first to find it and report it.
Thanks SmartLabs Mike for the feedback and support.
I just submitted the form. I've got a couple of X10 modules that can fill in until I get a new module. :unsure:
