Question about X-10 X10 FireCracker Remote Control

1 Answer

I need to do programmable micro-dimming in x-10 on a budget, anyone know how?

I want to make a dawn simulator like this one here: However I would like to have the dimmer brighten in micro steps. I will be using an led circuit which is very non-linear and I will be losing a lot of gradation, so having as many dimming steps as possible would be nice (i.e. 200 instead of 20) Ideally I would use a mini timer that starts a module like the cm11a, which sends micro brightening steps to the dimmer module. If this is not possible I could leave my pc on but this is not preferable. I would also be willing to use other standards like insteon. Thanks, jjbologna

I have a GE 24944 Universal Remote that I need to program to a Toshiba HD DVD (A3) Player. No code works from the manual. Can anyone please help?!

If you have a GE universal remote, you can use its "code search" function to find out whether any code in its library can control your Toshiba player. If nothing works, you may have to try another programmable remote as all programmable remote do not contain all codes.

If your Vivid remote has a code search function, you can use it to find a code that will control your Yamaha Micro-040 device (whatever it is). The instructions for your Vivid remote may also include a procedure for searching the entire code library in your remote.
