I have 1 overhead light that i'd like to control with my ir remote (MX700) in my home theatre. I'd like to be able to set different brightness levels from an IR command. For example if i hit reading light on my remote it would set the light to 100%. If i hit movie it would go directly to 25%. I don't want to to have to ramp the light all of the way down then ramp back up to a specific brightness. I just want to be able to program a certain brightness. Any ideas?

As long as you are prepared to deal with the idiosyncrasies of X10, a IR543 and PCS brand X10 switch will serve you well. You will need a PC X10 interface to make programing the PCS switch easy but it is well worth the effort.
