I have a Sanyo XP21 and want to control the up/down function of a Stewart screen. Since the XP21 does not have a 12 volt trigger output, what are my options? I believe there are current sensing devices that could do the 12 volt trigger; anyone have experience/recommendations with these? Do they/should they affect picture quality (some people feel that ANYTHING else on the line degrades the signal). Are there other possibilities?

Any help would be appreciated!

One option; X10 has a 12volt trigger module.

Here are a number of options from a similar question that
I had a while ago. At present, I still do it manually.
Many people seem happy with the Sears solution.

I use an X-10 module to turn a Radio Shack 12 power supply on and off. Works like a charm. Has the advantage of being simple, cheap and effective.
