    Hi,

    My brand new AL2671W LCD TV has a problem with remote control signals from other devices.

    After using the Acer LCD TV remote control to change a setting, eg volume, channel, menu, etc, then every time any other remote control for any other device is pressed the Acer LCD TV actions the same function as previously selected on its remote control. :mad:

    For example, if I press volume + on the Acer & then press any button on my DVD remote then the Acer increases its volume as if I had pressed the Acer remote again.

    This happens with any & all remote controls for all
    Other devices I have tried so far :-
    Kiiro 838d DVD player
    Netgem i-player digital freeview
    Goodmans 285NS 28" TV
    Toshiba VT-428B VCR
    and others...

    It does not matter what button I press on the other devices remote controls. Every time any button is pressed the Acer LCD TV acts as though I had pressed the last button I had previously pressed on its remote control.

    Has anyone ever heard of anything similar or know if there is some kind of manufacturers reset with Acer LCD TVs I can try please? I have contacted Acer and the retailer but it may be some time before I hear anything back. In the meantime it is driving us mad.

    :lease:

    Cheers,
    AJP

    Ah sorry, but I am having a bad day & have posted this in the wrong forum. Can the mods please move this to LCDs. Ta.

    I have experiened this with individual devices, like don't try an NEC and an Onkyo in the same setup, but so wholesale, sounds like a fault on the Acer. My other hot IR tip, all Sony devices I've come across use the same code, (except a HDD music server) so never own more than 1 sony device.....
