The link Kenwh posted looks like it will solve my problems with some of my light controls if I use it to interface to X-10 devices, which work well for me. The Hampton Bay fan issue is not a issue I can solve with X-10 control interfaces as they built a module into the fan and provided a RF remote for it. Converting to X-10 control may work well for your application if your present hookup is not part of the track lights, but is external to them. X-10 appliance modules work well for heavy loads but do not have a dim function. The X-10 light control modules do have a dim function but are limited to 300 watts per module. You didn't specify how many spots were in the string or total wattage. My kitchen spots will exceed the 300 watt rating so I either have to use a X-10 high current relay module or crawl into the attic and rewire the kitchen spots with several lamp modules. The dim function is very nice and much more pleasing than on/off control of bright lights. I would think this would be significant for your application, even more than mine. A slow dim of your track lights, just prior to the movie start, would be aawesome effect.
Presently I am still struggling to get the basic configuration of the Pronto to control just my IR Audio/Video equipment. It appears that my components lack good ccf or pcf files on RemoteCentral. Some are close but many of the buttons have to be re-programmed. My Pre-amp is a Sony TA-E9000ES and there are only TSU1000 or TSU2000 files that I have found for it, thus far. It is nice pre-amp but getting long in the tooth for most users. It is not a big deal to import ccf files, but perhaps the import function is corrupting them a bit. Not certain of this but Philips manual aludes to this and it will take me some time to get a interface I like working correctly.
Until I get control of my audio/video equipment ,via the Pronto, I will need to place the Hampton Bay fan RF issue on a hold. There is a learning curve to the ProntoEdit software and I am only a few days into that aspect of it. I may, however try kenwh's suggestion to ask Bill about it and also contact Hampton Bay very soon, just in case it takes awhile to get a reply back. If I find anything useful I will post it here. I will also post my failures as well, so we can eliminate them from the possibilities. Since Hampton Bay supplies a major portion of the market for ceiling fans I suspect there are other users that could use this information.
I was un-informed of your control system for lights and you may have the spelling wrong as this link http://www.lutron.com
appears to cover GRAFIK light control systems, and it appears that they already have IR controls available. You can do better researching this web site than I can as you know what models you have. Good luck.
