Good Morning Rober,

        Do you have to use the projector method?  We have a film running on a loop with a screen (actually in the next room) which is controlled simply by a timer.  The film is on an SD disc and video reader and both that and the screen come off the same timer.  If you could obtain a reasonable size screen to fit the window (or rent one for the month) it could probably be done by the same rather simpler method.  We also have a 55 inch touchscreen but you can't borrow that!

Hello, Iím putting an exhibition in an empty retail unit, consisting of an artistís film back projected onto the window of the unit.


Itís on for about a month, and Iím trying to work out a way of automating turning the computer and projector on in the morning and turning it all off safely in the evening. Essentially I want to avoid having to go to the unit and manually set it up/shut it down every day for the next month!


Programming the computer to turn itself on and off is fairly easy but the projector is refusing to cooperateÖ Iíve tried various things such as vvvv but no success so far.


If anyoneís managed to achieve this in the past, Iíd be grateful if you could pass on any tips!
