Old Lamp Dimmer Project:
Several years ago, I was interested in building my own PIC microcontroller based lamp dimmer device. It worked very well for me and I'm still using several of the boxes in my own home to this day. People outside of North America have reported problems controlling the device remotely largely due to the fact that my code does not support a format called "RC5". You would have to write your own program to support this format or any other that the original program doesn't appear to work with.
