Centrally Switch Off TVs Across Site
I don't know if this has been asked before, or if it is even possible. But I have been asked to find a way to turn off all of our Plasma TVs from a central location within the school. The request has been prompted by today being an inset day when there is no-one in school but the TVs were still turned on by the built in timer.
We have 7 TVs located in 3 separate buildings within the school. All the TVs are Samsung PS42A457's.
I was thinking something along the lines of putting an IR repeater on each of the TVs, that could be controlled over IP, to turn each TV onto standby (We can't turn the TVs off at the mains as they lose all of their timer information when we do this for some strange reason)
So I would be really grateful if anyone has any solutions that they could recommend or an idea of how this could be achieved.
Obviously the cheaper the better, but if a cheaper solution may be temperamental I would prefer to spend a bit more.
Thanks in advance.
