I use a simple method that works fine!

- Use a USB to RS-232 cable (some TVs need a serial adapter with croossver)
- Use EventGhost, associate windows events to the serial plugin.

Thats it! I have my tvs shutdows when mediasignage go to standbymode ans power on after a windows restart. Also, in the same macro i mute the TV, Change the inut source and make a automatic adjustment.

If will be nice if we can do that directly in MS!

this is the way to go.
