Module for Epson PowerLite 2265

Is there a module or has someone written a module for Epson PowerLite 2265U Projector? I have to swap out a project at work and I would rather just change the module and not have to rewrite everything.
Also, most projectors are pretty easy to control. Might be just as easy to roll your own.
Well, I suppose you must then weigh how long it takes you to roll your own vs. the time it would take to unpack a few and give them a try. If you're controlling via rs232, I'd just roll my own. If it was IP, I might give a couple modules a try.
The other ting to check if you are controlling it by IP is (I think) Some of the newer models do sport the "Eco" mode where the unit powers down the essential control ports (IP and rs232) unless you turn the Eco mode off. When I'm stuck with these things, I always send the Eco Mode Off command after any power on/ source change or prior to power off commands. Even there, if the site has a substantial loss of power for a good length of time, the dumb thigns seem to go back to that setting. In that case the client has to power on the projector manually once and then the control system, when used re-sends the Eco MOde Off.
Also, some of them do actually respond to a Wake On LAN message. I usually build that into my modules as well. I think LGs and Sharps do respond to them. Just some general info that seems to come up a lot with display devices.
