Default Looking for LCD with RS232

Greetings all,

I am looking for recommendations for a good quality 26" - 27" LCD
monitor/TV, that has an RS232 port, for external control ( computer
controlled on/off ). Looking to control 6 - 10 monitors.

Thanks in advance

My 22" Aquos (3yo) has such a connector but the manual states "The RS-232C
terminal is for future expansion only and cannot be used for PC control of
the unit"

Perhaps it's different on modern versions.

mine says....


pc control of the system, when a program is set, the display can be
controlled from the pc using rs232c terminal. the input can be selected, the
volume can be adjusted and various other settings can be made.
then it gives details of the command format etc and says 'this should only
be used by someone who is accustomed to using pcs'.

it's a LC26GA3E.

Well, the 'future expansion' has obviously happened in the last couple of
years.

mine has a socket for a modem, presumably in-case a backchannel for
DVB-T was established?

Probably an old-fashioned modem, then. I'm waiting for the more modern
modems.

my parent's grundig idtv from a few years ago has a modem too - presumably
of use in the ondigital days?
as for a modern modem - what's the point exactly?
