Check if monitor/projector is turned on

Hi, there is a way to check if monitor or projector connected to PC is on? and if yes, there is in gamma a node like in beta call MonitorPower (system)?

If your projector implements the PJLink protocol, you could try using VL.PJLink, it should be able to tell you whether the projector is on or not.

Now to detect if a monitor is on or off, did a quick search and it looks like there’s no real reliable way of knowing that

And to replicate beta’s MonitorPower, if you’re fine with doing some C# there are some leads here.

Hi @sebescudie and thank you for your reply, unfortunately the projector have not PJLink but maybe I’ll be able to do something with the RS232 port…
