Philips BDL Series Screen

I used the RS232 commands which the api guide documents very well. However to figure out which port to send the commands to I had to nmap the screen where I saw 2 ports open which was 2323 and 5000. However If you want to controll it over RS232 you will need a nullmodem cable.

To control the screen on and off you need these commands

Port: 5000
Commands;

Power On

<x05><x01><x18><x02><x1E><x0D>

Power Off

<x05><x01><x18><x01><x1D><x0D>

NEC Screens/Projectors

TCP port: 7142

Projector on:

<x02><x00><x00><x00><x00><x02><cr>

Projector off:

<x02><x01><x00><x00><x00><x03><cr>

Display on:

<x30><x30><x21><x0d><cr>

Display off:

<x30><x30><x22><x0d><cr>

Also remeber to set power standby mode to normal instead of the default “power-saving” since power saving will make the projector unavailable on the network when it is turned off.

This is under Options->Advanced->Standby mode
