    Automate LCD brightness settings?

    I'm getting annoyed at having to adjust the screen everyday when it gets dark and in the morning. Has anyone found a way to automate this? Also, my xenarc touchscreen has a problem of not remembering the last brightness settings after it has been shut off. Is this the case for all screens? Everytime I start my car I'm constantly sitting there adjusting the brightness because it goes back to default settings.

    Suprising as it may seem, media engine has a setting whereby you can have daytime and nighttime settings, where the backlight/brightness is adjusted at the defined time.
