    Just got a new ( to me) projector - ASK m5. I want to use its 12v output if it has one. There are no obvious outputs. Do all projectors have these things? There is a hole with a symbol above it that looks like a chain, but don't know what would go in it. Is this any good?

    If the projector is not designed for Home Cinema use, it is unlikely to have a 12 volt trigger.
    As far as I know the ASK projectors are designed for the corporate/presentation market.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Kensington Lock? Is this for security or something? Sounds logical.
    I think i'm out of luck with this. I just thought that all projectors had these things. Nevermind.

    Cheers

    There is a cure, but it costs about £150 They are available from owl, I can get you one if you're interested. Works with any PJ, enables anything that can accept a trigger signal to be operated. I presume this is a screen you want to work?

    Ye, thats what I was interested in, but at £150 it will have to wait i'm afraid. Thanks for the offer though.
