I just got the 807 and am using it to power external amps. I have my Amps plugged into a Power conditioner with timed outlets. On my last unit prior to the 807 I had a trigger that turned I connected to the power conditioner.

It appears that the Onkyo only has a trigger for zone 2 and 3, any work arounds so I can trigger the power conditioner via the onkyo

If you have a programable remote like the Harmony then you can program it to power up Zone 2 which will activate the 12v trigger. Then program it to power down Zone 2 when powering off the 807. I did this when I was using my 805 as a prepro, worked great.

I really don't get Onkyo's logic regarding the 12v trigger. Just about every other AVR manufacturer that has AVRs with 12v triggers are for the main zone.

Does the 807 have switched AC outlets on the back? What I did with my old Onkyo was just plug in a universal 12v adapter to the switched outlet and wire it to the amp trigger input.

The 807 does not have a switched outlet. I did the same thing you are talking about with my 805 before I found that I could program my Harmony to power up/down Zone 2. Its too bad that a lot of AVR's do not have the switched outlets anymore. They were useful for use with a 12v adapter or to switch on a cooling fan (in the case of Onkyos).

thanks, i will give this a try. Really, I am not sure why they would have pre outs and not have the trigger since that is key to making it work like one unit.
