Well, there's remote via wire through the VPR-722 remote and 14 pin CCQ cable. If your 1031Q is ceiling mounted then having a remote is nice. If you're floor mounted, it's not a big deal. But yeah, it would be a nice bell and whistle to have an IR remote to control some operations on the 1031Q. What I'd like to see the most though is multiple aspect ratio control through a toggle between different RGB V-SIZE pots. I wish I had the electronics experience where I could make the mod. Though it cannot be that hard to do.
IR power sounds like it wouldn't be too difficult with that IR kit that Vic was talking about.
Yea there a post somewhere that I posted an IR kit with 12 IR controled relays. I think it would be safe enough if the relays could handle the current. I proposed to insert a relay into my VPH722 and it could then be a manual turn on or IR controlled turn on /off.
ALSO there is another non IR way to go. I need to look at the pin out of the control port again to make sure which pins are wich but the 1031Q when on or off as long as power is feeding the projector outputs 12V at one of the pins. The VPH722 uses that 12V to turn on and off the PJ.
So, you could feed a 12V trigger to the PJ and make it come on or get a 12V power adaptor plugged into a switched outlet at the back of a receiver or preamp and that could trigger the PJ when the power is told to come on via its IR remote. That would be pretty easy I think but may look ugly with out the actuall control cable hooked up to the PJ. You could buy the male and female control cable ends for about 30.00 each and make a 2 conductor 12V trigger cable.
Ill need to look into this if any one is interested. I could problably make one up and sell it as a 12V trigger kit for the 10XX projecotrs.
I understand the question about remote Power (I just use X10) and Horizontal, Vertical (aspect ratio change would be nice). But after initial setup with Avia I never touch my Contrast or Brightness. Am I missing something?
