Since my extra power amp for the 4 ceiling speakers, is behind a wall, and not having a way to know, if the power did turn on, with the trigger cable. With an optical cable, that was my previous project, did not work very good. To see if it was On, light blue when the amp is on stand-by, or dark blue when the amp is On, did not show very well, and left you guessing
I decided to go back to manual, and make an extension to the Power Button, since if the amp is not on stand by for Auto On, there is no little blue light.
By looking into the clear plastic tube, you know for sure if the amp (picture on post 76) is On or Off, and work perfectly.
Here's some pics, on how I did achieve-it, this little project.
Picture of the material, that will be use, the tape is to mark the center of the plastic plate, and stopping the pilot drill bit, from wondering off center. Plastic can be very brittle when trying to drill through-it, the reason for so many drill bits.
The material together, and some glue curing.
A view from inside the equipment room, Theater is on the other side.
This picture, is what it look like on the Theater side, work just like a normal push button, and by looking into-it, you know if the power is On or Off. No more guessing if the trigger cable did it's job or not
