I am assuming you already have it connected to your screen? You need something with a 12v output to trigger the screen. Does your surround processor or receiver have such an output?

I am sure it would be possible to send a 12v single manually to the screen but that defeats the purpose. You bought the interface so that you would have remote control right? You are going to have to buy either a new processor, receiver, projector or send the interface back. It probably would be cheaper to just take it back to the dealer and continuing to use the manual switch because without a remote control device that outputs a 12v trigger it is just going in circles. Are you planning on upgrading any items in your system? Maybe now's the time to add dolby prologic II or dolby ex or something and get a 12v trigger in the deal.

This thread tells you how to add a 12vdc trigger to any projector. Worked for me...

Guys I appreciate your advice but how do I connect this thing ? It doesnt seem to have anything about 12v on it written !

12VDC trigger via a "wall wart" or transformer plugged into the back of your receiver or a cheap receiver that turns on via IR.
