I have 4 LED can lights, 65W equivalents on a Lutron MIR-600THW-WH. At low levels the lights flicker. I read that LEDs don't pull enough current and make the dimmer unstable.

Does anyone know of a dimmer with a remote that will work with LEDs?

My only other route is to toss some resistors in the circuit, but that makes me a bit nervous.

Lutron MACL-153M. It's their new CL line of dimmers that are designed to work with dimmable LEDs & CFLs.

He said "dimmer with a [handheld] remote".

The Maestro line has dimmers with remotes and I'm pretty sure there is a new CL model. I may not have listed the correct model number.
