    I've spent the last three hours or so trying to get my X10 controlled lights to smoothly dim, and am nearly going crazy(ier)!

    I'm using a IR7243 type device (from Lets Automate) for converting the infra red signals to X10. The codes i've download from Remote Central for the pronto work great, but i am unable to get the lights to smoothly dim. I've tried macros with and without pauses in them, and even added in extra repeating codes to the IR Code for dimming, but this has only made a slight difference. The dimming happens in four stages with a noticeable pause in between each one.

    It appears that it is not possible to have more than 256 burst pairs for control codes, despite the number being represented by four digit hex, so i can't extend the reoeating code any further. Pronto edit reports an error with any number after 0100 (256)

    Does anyone have a CCF for one of these that can smoothly dim lights? I'm at the end of my tether!

    I use a pronto and X10 and can dim and brighten the lights OK. Try the following IR codes:

    To dim X10 device 2:

    0000 006b 0018 000c 00a5 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 01c2 0096 00a5 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 01c2 0384 00a5 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 01c2 0094

    To brighten X10 device 2:

    0000 006b 0018 000c 00a5 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 01c2 0096 00a5 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 01c2 0384 00a5 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 008e 0096 008e 0096 002e 00fe 008e 0096 002e 00fe 002e 00fe 01c2 0094

    In each case hold the pronto button down until you get the light at the correct level. I have similar codes for X10 devices 1 to 8 and can send you a ccf.
