Any way to automatically turn on/off a HD131x?

Hello

I have a Optoma HD131x projector which is connected to my htpc. I would love to be able to turn the projector on automatically when I wake my htpc. Is this possible?

Thanks

Does it have hdmi control in the menu? If so you'll be able to turn it on that way.

My last 3 projectors have had auto off where they shut down 5 minutes after their last signal so I normally turn off the htpc and the subwoofer amps, then leave the room and let the projector turn itself off.

Don't think it has HDMI control. Is it possible that features like this may be added to the firmware? If so I might look into upgrading the firmware.

I've not used hdmi control on any of mine although my latest does have it. They've all turned themselves off after the receiver is off due to not receiving a signal. They usually take 5 mins or so then shut down.

The problem is not turning off. It is turning the projector on. I would like it to turn on when I wake my htpc.
