    Hi all,

    Just bought an Acer AL2671W (based in part on good reviews in this forum), to tide us over until the lounge is decorated & we can get a new rear pro DLP (had a sagem 50" with which we were very pleased, but it went phut twice so I got my money back). We're very pleased with the Acer, however, it does seem a little 'over enthusiastic' to remote commands - not only it's own, but the amp (a Yamaha DSP750SE) and the DVD (a cambridge audio DVD59). Increasing the volume or skipping a chapter causes it to step up one channel. It isn't an overlap since the remotes don't work the opposite device - just the TV

    Is this normal for the TV, or is it just mine?

    Cheers

    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    Its just yours. And mine. And some German guy's AL2671W.

    After contacting both Ebuyer & Acer support, I was told that this was a known problem and there was no fix for it as yet. Acer didn't want me to swap the LCD as they said " you could just end up with another one with the same problem". In the absence of any fix whatsoever we could not live with a TV repeating its last remote command when any other remote is operated. I sent the LCD back and bought a Sharp Aquos.

    If you want to try to live with it then I suggest that after every use of the Acer remote you press the OK button. This does nothing, but means that when you then press a button on other remote controls it also does nothing to the Acer LCD such as continuing to increase the volume, change channel, etc.

    Good luck,

    AJP
