    Hi,

    Can someone tell which Barco switchers will work with a Zenith 1200x (Barco Cine 8 onyx) using either the single control cable or rs232.

    Thanks

    What are you trying to do?

    most are a modular system and cuctom card fitted to suit each application.....

    There might be a better way if we know a bigger picture..

    Hi,

    I'm trying to find out which switchers will work with the cine 8 as far as the 2 wire connection or the rs232 from the pj to control the switcher's inputs. I know they changed the IR control for the switchers from PLL to RC5 control signals, but I want the pj to control the switcher.

    Thanks

    RS232 is a protocol and unchanged in the Barco range as far as I know.

    Only Barco switchers will directly work.

    You can use a pc to control rs232 codes to any controlable item.

    I think all of them should work BUT I dont have a cine 8 so not 100% sure......

    James should be about, Im guessing he will know.



    PS - think you will find the switcher will control the projector NOT the other way.

    Hi,

    As far as I know the 1209s is the same as the cine8 in that respect, so what ever works for the 1209s should work for my 1200x. In the manual for the 1209s it mentions the RCVDS05. The RCVDS I'm looking at(on ebay) is a RCVDS Quad I think.
    Hmmm, if the switcher controls the pj then I'd probably need a different remote because they changed to the RC5 codes after this RCVDS was designed I'm thinking.

    Thanks

    OK, I think there is a little confussion here.

    The remote control is totally seperare to the rs232 ports and the control port.

    so for now forget about the remote control.

    The one I think you are looking should work and is a nice unit.

    This controls the projector via the control port

    THis unit also has its remote with it so you should not even need the projector remote
    (maybe to switch on BUT you can set to switch on with power)

    NOW the only thing I am not sure of is if you have a Zenith projector it is possible that the software is different and this wont work - but I dont know.

    Hope that is of help.
