Is there more to your question? Figuring out a good way to turn on the projector doesn't seem like that difficult of a problem... I feel like I'm missing what you are really asking.
lol... nope you're getting it. I've not yet run my wires. I don't want to use my projector remote. I'd prefer it turns on with the AVR.
There's some language in my AVR instructions that elude to using HDMI as a turn on method for the projector, but I don't understand it.
I'll have to double check with the Pioneer guys and see. I think it would be safe for me to just run a 12 volt trigger though while I have the ceiling open.
FYI- I'll be using my iPad to control the AVR, media player, 99% of the comcast box, and hopefully my blu ray player will have an app as well. The less remotes the better.
