Can one of you confirm this will work?

It works in my home.

One word of advice. The feedback LED in the IR543 is quite bright. I don't think you want it facing the seating in your home theater. I put the IR543 in another room with the rest of the equipment and relay the IR commands to it.

If you use a X-10 based light switch, try one of the Leviton PRO or Powerline Control Systems ss-1 LS600 models. They can ramp up slowly and fade out slowly. This is much more pleasing to the eye. Also they accept the preset dim commands to recall your favorite levels. Make sure to try it out. Looks like an easy plan for you.

Thank you both very much! Both suggestions adopted. Where to get the Leviton switch on-line?

You could try Worthington Distribution:

They have a very competitive pricing. I've been happy buying from them in the past.

OK, I think I have a plan to solve my "out of IR line of sight" problem with the main theater lights.

I'll install an X10 switch on the light and install an IR to X10 converter where it is facing the HT seating area. I'll program the Pronto to operate the X10 switch via the converter.

For the rest of the system, I install an IR sensor facing the seating area. It is wired to a connector block from which mini IR emitters are run to the individual pieces of equipment which are in a rack in the next room.

Sound like a plan?
