I use a mix of devices; I think most are dual-band at this point, while some of my older ones are powerline only. The two or three that will occasionally not respond are probably the latter.
I haven’t looked into the PLM Binding source code to see if it has retrying in software. But IIRC, I think the PLM should actually be doing that on the hardware side (send command, wait for ack, if not received send again). So maybe the problem devices are only connected as responders to the PLM, and not vice versa?
Just haven’t had time to dig into this further, but will try to get back to it soon.
