    Default Colour change lighting

    I'm looking for an LED colour change lighting system.
    Ideally I would like to be able to have the ability to change colours via an IR remote.
    The system needs to be able to do the following;
    1. Change colours via a remote.
    2. Have a slow and fast colour cycling mode.
    3. Not too expensive. I have seen comercial systems that cost over 300 pounds for just the controller, too expensive for me.
    I have found one from lighting-direct but it has no remote control option, but the deluxe version does have a sound to light mode.
    I have seen a few homebrew versions, but I would rather buy off the shelf if possible, as I don't really have the time for another project.

    Have you tried Mr Resistor

    They seem to have reasonable prices

    B&Q do some colour-change lights. Reports suggest they're ok for back-lighting but shouldn't be relied upon as a main light source.

    They're not on the website unfortunately, but do you have any relatives in the UK that could check them out for you?

    Costs were reasonable, but no remote control function :-(
    They were from a mainstream lighting manufacturer, so there are probably details on the net somewhere. I'll make a note of the mfr name when I'm next in-store and post it up here.

    Cheers,

    Tim.
