I am trying to set up a multiroom system using a Pioneer Elite rcvr. I was going to use the switched outlet to detect when it was on, but the outlet is powered as long as multiroom is ON, and i need multiroom on all the time since there is no remote code for it.
Instead, i think i can use the OSD video output, if i can find a device that outputs 12V when video is detected.
Any pointers?

The Video detector probe made by smartlinc might work. Here is a link to check them out: http://www.smarthome.com/1622.html

I looked at it, but couldn't determine what it really outputs?? Is it an X10 code? or does it just open/close a contact?

Xantech has some serious product in this area too that could be combined with thei gateways. Instead of (miserably) trying to describe the feature, you should have a look at their web site. They have ons of PDF showing implementation examples.

There are two types of video sensors. Some just sense voltage over a certain threshold (Smartlinc, Sonance, Niles) and others actually sense the presence of a video carrier (Crestron and one other whose name escapes me). The voltage type is actually preferrable because "blue screens" and the static on off air stations you don't receive don't have a carrier. I like the Niles SAS-1 because of the threshold adjustment and its use in other applications.
