After reading in a couple of threads where people were trying to use Generic monitors as displays for LinuxMCE, I decided to make a DPMS Monitor DCE device.
You can select it in the Setup Wizard, under the Generic Manufacturer, when setting up your AV devices. It uses X DPMS calls to turn the monitor on and off. This is all it does. This is all it will ever do. If you need input control, you must make your own template.
It will be available in the next alpha.
Those of you who need it, please test and let me know if it works.
