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?
