    Hi, I assume I have a tv card, as there is a arial socket at the rear of the computer.I asked the support team at acer for advice, they said all the instructions to set up were in the manual you download. As far as I can see, these instructions do not exist in their set up pages. Regards, Colin Copping

If you have a tuner card, there should be a Coaxial input sticking out of the computer, much like your cable jack in your home. If you do, you'll need to get the software for the card, which would be able to download tv listings, etc.

Open up Device Manager, then expand 'Sound, video, and game controllers'. My computer has "ATI TV Wonder TV Tuner". You'd probably see something similar, depending upon the brand. Let me know if you see anything like this. (If you don't see it under Sound, Video, and Game controllers, just look around.)

    You should only need the first 2. I'd also download the manual.

How do I find the Acer Aspire ASE 380 UD421A schematic?


Computers are wired like a car. Your "wiring harness" comes with plug ins for upgrades, like a second hard drive. In all likely hood if the computer is running correctly, these plugins are for upgrading purposes.

Question about the integrated audio on an Acer desktop...


Actually, it's more the speakers, you can have the greatest sound card in the world, but plugging in a 10 dollar set of pc speakers is not going to sound good. That's why a good motherboard has Optical SPDIF Out Port, so you can put the sound to a receiver.

It's HD 5 channel, but likely your sound blaster is better.

I want to run a live TV threw my acer aspire Z5700 with directv how do I do it


Hello booche!
Directv provide free software so that you can stream live TV over your home network from your Directv Receiver to your computer. I think given the particular model of All-In-One you are using, this is perhaps the simplest and best option for you.
Here is a direct link to the Directv website page which gives detailed instructions: http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/directv/technology/directv2pc
I hope this works for you!

Connect my aspire 5332 to my digital tv


There are a few things that need to present or applicable for this to work.

First off you need to have either a HDMI cable that can be plugged into your TV( tv and laptop must have one for this option to work). And you'd need to have the channel on your TV set to which ever channel recieves HDMI input.

Second you could have a monotor cable with two ends to attach to your laptop and TV as well as an audio cable like you get for computer speakers to have a line in and a line out, you may need an adapter for the video, usually with newer tvs like my 25.5" LCD HDTV from Samsung they provided this cable and a adapter. After they are connected you'd still have to set the channel to the correct one for the input to receive a picture from your laptop for example my tv channel for my PC is called DVI and my HDMI connection is HDMI 1

If you dont have either of those then you would need an S video cord and a audio cord with it to connect your output (from laptop) to the input hole (into tv) for this to work. And the channel would have to correctly set again.

If none of these help please post in more detail.

How do I use s-video for my tv?


Your TV is nothing more than a display device just like a monitor for you computer. If you TV has an S-Video interface on the back you are capable of plugging this into any video controller (e.g. DVD Player, Satellite Receiver, Computer, etc.) that also has a S-Video adapter.

All you need is a long enough S-Video cable. You would also need to change the Video Input on the TV to the S-Video input in order to see what's actually being displayed by the device producing the display.

Hope this helps. I know it's a little general, but if you need more specific instruction please provide more details of what you're tyring to do.

Connect PC to TV?
Connect DVD Player to TV?
Connect Satellite Receiver to TV?
and so on...
