- 50" (diagonal) widescreen Plasma television
- RS232 port at the back to allow external control (by LinuxMCE for example)
- HDMI inputs
For detailed specs see the Pioneer 1140HD webpage.
Serial Port use
The Pioneer Pro-1140HD can be controlled by LinuxMCE through the serial port.
- From the factory the 1140HD is set to SR+ mode which ignores the rs232 port. In order to take the tv out of SR+ mode so it will respond to rs232 information you must start with the tv in standby mode. On the television remote, press the "Home Menu" key and within 3 seconds press the power on button. You will see SR+ <=> :On at the bottom of the screen. Press the left key on the direction pad of the remote to turn the SR+ <=> to :Off. If you need to change the baud rate, you can press down on the direction pad of the remote. The factory default baud rate is 9600.
- You will need a "straight" or "pass through" serial cable to connect the tv to the media director or hybrid/core.
Create a New Template in LinuxMCE
An example of the code you enter to turn on the tv is: <$"\x02**PON\x03"$>
An example of the code to change tv input to input 6 (an HDMI port) is: <$"\x02**INPS06\x03"$>

There used to be a Pioneer Kuro template. The Pioneer Kuro 5080 seems to be identical to the Pioneer Pro-1140HD.
