Power supply. Try replacing it. It is modular.

I have had the exact same problem. After doing some research, I learned that previous to the DTV transition, several television stations broadcasted in the VHF band. A VHF signal had more of an ability to travel around trees and mountains and, therefore, was received easily by television antennas. However, after the DTV transition, many stations moved to the UHF band which is "terrain limited," meaning it can't go around trees, mountains, etc. So, if you live near a large hill or have lots of trees nearby, you may lose a signal. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about this. If you originally used "bunny ears" or another type of indoor antenna, you can improve your reception with a rooftop antenna. If you already have one and still don't get all the stations you used to (like me), then there isn't anything you can do except maybe making your antenna taller. I suggest you contact a professional that works with antennas and ask him what he may be able to do. I wish you the best of luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

That depends on the type of your card reader: if when you connect it to the laptop you only get a single drive letter assigned to it (not as many letters as there are sockets), than no, you can only use a single card at a time.

If it has to be round rather than a standard pc/monitor power cable, your best bet is going to be contacting the manfacturer. You might find a replacement at some place like radio shack or a local computer store but from the sound of it, it's not going to be something carried by many places if any.

are you trying to connect wireless or cabled?
Wireless should be easy, just turn on the wireless device (if its built in) normally by pressing a Fn key and an F key marked with an antenna picture. Then connect to you Sky router after the wireless scan (the number and network key are printed on your router base)
You should just be able to plug an RJ45 network lead into your laptop and it should use DCHP to work (Plug and play).

I do not know what version sky remote you have but I'm not sure it matters. I could not find any codes for your Atec TV anywhere. Chances are it's a new manufacturer possibly a home brand. This is a brand sold manly in a localized area. But because of the web it allows it's sale anywhere.
The first link is to Sky.com help. The second is basically telling you if your TV isn't listed give them time.
I will ad that I have seen some issues with the picture of Atec TV's not being properly display when used with the Sky system.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I will keep an eye out for update regarding your remote and TV. If one pops up I'll post it to this thread.
"HAPPY (insert preference here)" and "MERRY NEW YEAR" To you and yours.

The only thing i've seen with those Acers that generally cause that is that electrolytic capacitors in the power supply fail causing what you're describing. It would make sense that 3 TVs bought at the same time would have about the same amount of time on them, and are wearing at a similar rate.
Good luck.

Just pick one not both, HDMI is an all in one cable for sound and picture.

I can tell you that your HDTV is definitely dtv ready. Models that are new enough to display a 1080 picture will definitely have a tuner that reads the new digital format. If you hook up a regular antenna to your HD tv, you will be able to search for, find and watch HDTV channels. The availability of free hd channels is limited to what is broadcast in the area that you live in.

Unfortunately, this does not mean that you will not need a cable box from a provider. This is because not only do cable providers provide channels, but they scramble signals so that you can only see the channels you pay for.

For example I have two HDTVs. One is upstairs and plugged into the cable socket in the wall. One is downstairs and plugged into a box from my cable company.

Upstairs with no cable box, I can search for channels in the setup and the tv will show many channels that aren't just numbered like "13" or "48" but had a dash in them like "4-10". This is the new format. I can see all the 'basic cable' channels as well as the listen to the music-only digital channels the cable company provides. I cannot access any of the HD channels from this TV, even though I pay for them.

Downstairs, through the cable box, I can watch all the HD channels I pay for, and the box also translate the digital channels like "4-10" to the regular numbering system we are all used to.

I hope that helps.

your computer must be set up to display images to another playback unit - i.e. tv. go into display proprerties and choose "another" video display. right now the laptop is only set to display to your laptop.

Someone told me to use the settings in the "graphics tab" (for multiple monitors) not the settings in the "properties tab". Both allow multiple monitor configurations. Two minutes later and high have a 42" LCD HD monitor!
