    Hey all you techies out there -

    is there any way that I can easily (dont mind going in box) get either a switched 240v or 9v DC (300ma) output from the box
    which would be switched on only when the unit is on (ie off on stanby)

    I use a digital optical/co -ax convertor for dolby 5.1 which is powered by 9v dc from an AC mains adapter which I would rather not leave powered on all the time (its a pain switching manually all the time

    thanks

    Interesting project, firstly I would probably rule out a switched 240v, as Sky+ constantly draws on this regardless of it's power status (on/standby).

    The viable option would be the 9v, I would recommend that you perhaps use a volt meter and with the cover off attempt to locate a pin perhaps near the power modules that output this voltage when the device is set to on, there MUST be something there.

    However, by you drawing an extra 300 ma you must ensure that you do not blow or over heat the power modules itself. I appreciate this is a relative small amount of current but nevertheless you do not want to create a bigger problem.
