433 modul does not work

Hey Zipato Users!

I have an 433mhz Zipato module. I try to controll my shutters.

I tried the classic adding methods (teacable mode on shutters, copying mode on remote, but none of my shutters are work with 433 modul)

The 433 modul always finds "something" after 20sec (every time precisely, 20sec) even if all of my shutters and remotes are not powered by 220volt and/or battery.

If i made a RF shielding for the zipato main modul, and 433 modul, remove both antennas, so the z-wave network does not work >> but the 433 modul still finds "something" with RF shield and antenna remove... >> still after 20sec, precisely.

Tried to switch to another 433 modul but all are the same.

Any ideas? How to get this to work?

Since the 433 MHz protocol is a one way protocol Zipato always "finds" your shutter. That is: Zipabox assumes there is a shutter. But never knows it for sure because the shutter is not reporting back. With most shutters the shutter itself is reporting if pairing is succesfull by moving the screen a few times up and down.

I can see the Tx light flashing on the transmitter arduino, but no Rx on the receiver board.
