I have been trying to connect my TV to an exercise bike for a couple of months now and I have almost made it work, but not quite. I have an exercise bike that has a shroud around the flywheel. I places a motion sensor (the kind you use in place of a wall light switch) inside the shroud and it kind of works. When I start peddling it will turn the TV on, but our 51inch projection TV must pull too many watts for the sensor because the sound only works speratically. I got a little bit more expensive sensor but had the same problem. Next I tried to hook a relay up to the motion sensor that would then power the outlet the TV was plugged into. This did not work because the relay did not pull enough electricity to cause the motion sensor to start working. I really like the idea of the motion sensor because I can set it to stay on for a few minutes after peddling without worrying about the TV going off immediately. Any great ideas?
