Did you try all possibilities even: sh x10cmd A3 rf dim ${intensity.byte} ?
May be there should be no space between dim and $ ::) :`)
PLC tends to be more reliable then RF but you should be able to get the dimming working.

Have you tried posting to the Ha-Bridge GitHub issues to see if others running a HA-Bridge and Mochad combo have dim working and how they did it?
Don't be in a hurry for answers and try not to make your post look like a demand, it may take weeks before you get an answer. If your post looks like a demand it will get likely get ignored by someone that knows the answer.
I know there are several using X10 with HA-Bridge on pi boards surely someone has dimming working with the cm19.

The HA Bridge folks are asking why the "sh x10cmd" prefix and why its not simply the mochad command "rf a3 dim ${intensity.math(((X*-22)/255)+22)}". Thanks.

The sh x10cmd was just to simplfy things for newbies. You can use the mochad full command if you wish the README includes examples.

The README file explains it all, rather then me opening the file and retyping it out. Have a look. it basically just reduces what you have to type in the the terminal to send a x10 command.

Well I had realy hoped to have more testers I've created a Zip file so if one uses etcher it shouldn't need unzipping first.
Anyone interested in testing it?
There are no additions to the actual image.

I'm happy to do that and try it out on both a ZW & 3B+.  I just got some new 8GB cards.

I haven't been able to get it to dim to a level, so won't be able to use it. Thanks for the effort and help!

That is the reason I wanted more testers. Dimming should totally be possible however if no other tester is dimming they can't share what works for them.
If the same thing doesn't work for you then the issue is most likely a bad install.

Thanks for your time testing the image.  (Chr)

We know the image installs and works for both the Pi ZeroW boards and the Pi 3B+ boards.
brobin has taken the time to put together a PDF for installing and initial setup which should be helpful to any one wishing to use this image.
Thanks brobin! (GJ)
I'd love to be able to ensure this works on at least one more Pi board model prior to release but this seems to be unlikely now :(
I'll try to get a new tread started just for the Alexa Hub image before the end of the weekend This will include the download links and allow users to discuss issues and maybe solve alzy's dimming to a level issue. :)!

I created a special section for the Alexa Hub which now has the download links.

In order to make it easier to find answers going further I'm locking this thread and the installer thread. Users can start a new thread for questions they may have about the image and installing. Thanks again to those that helped with this and to those that expressed interest in the project.
