Default machine control on the omni HD Pro Tools 9 Native

Anyone know if there is any way to get machine control on the avid HD Omni for Pro Tools 9? We are trying to run laybacks to our HDCAM, but the ominous "remote" port on the HD Omni is undocumented and doesn't seem to do anything.

Any help?!?

Question Re: machine control on the omni HD Pro Tools 9 Native

Have you tried connecting the HDCAM to the serial port on your HD Native card?

I seem to recall that when the omni was first released, there was mention that the remote port is for an actual remote control for the omni, and would thus not be capable of 9-pin control. Anyone confirm this?
