    I recently lost a Tivo unit to a lightning strike so I decided to buy a nice power protector (got a Panamax Max 5100).

    I would like to turn the switched outlets (my amp and sub) on with a 12V trigger from my reciever (Pioneer D850S). The Pioneer has a 1/8" jack on the back called "control". The manual describes it as a control out for controlling other components. It does not seem to work in triggering the power unit. Does anyone know if this output will not work as a 12V trigger? If not, what would be the cheapest way I can trigger the power unit using a remote control?

    I think, but am not sure, that the jack you are describing is for controlling other Pioneer products only, and is not a standard 12V trigger.

    Is there a switched outlet on your receiver? If so you could get a 12v transformer [Radio Shack] to do the same thing.

    Adam,

    If this jack functions like older Pioneer equipment, is allows the master receiver remote to control via hard-wire other Pioneer components.
