Sorry for such a basic question, this is my first projector and am keen to make use of the trigger functions.

I have an Yamaha RX v2085 (2 trigger outs), Epson tw7100, ambertec 106 electric.

I think my two options are

Run two trigger cables from the receiver to the projector and screen.

Or Run one trigger cable from projector to the screen (would the hdmi from the receiver turn on the projector, which will then turn on the screen?)

Also I'm not sure where to find 12v (I believe 3.5mm) cables. Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Try Jaycar and look for 3.5mm mono audio cables.

Pg49 of the Epson manual

 

 

 

Use CEC so when you turn the amp on the projector turns on or when you turn the projector on the amps turns on.

Ah that's great, thanks so much.

I did come across the Jaycar one, but wasn't sure. What do you do for a longer cable? I'm guessing around 4-5m from the projector to the screen.

Thanks

Ah ok thank you. After searching I wasn't sure if I could use a stereo cable, some forum posts say they only had success with mono cables.

I will get a stereo and try it first, making sure I have access to change if need be.

Cheers

You can get stereo to mono adapters if the pin placement at one end is such that the shield cable doesnt connect correctly, but IME most sockets are made with the same tooling so the shield connection on mono is going to connect to shield on a stereo plug too. You would want to put one on both ends of the cable incase one device is using a stereo socket and just has the ring and sleeve connected together.
