SAN FRANCISCO, March 15 /PRNewswire/ — In recent years, the Do-It-Yourself lifestyle has been gaining in popularity as people look for ways to take control of their time and money. One area that most consumers usually give up easily on is technology – whether it’s programming the latest device or transferring music files to a new MP3 player, professional help is usually sought out. With the impending arrival of both the iPad and 3D TV’s, many more consumers will be tempted to pay expensive fees just for a bit of help. But there’s an alternative – for a fraction of the cost of a house call, consumers can fix the problem themselves with the help of an online Expert.

       my old machine to my new one?

      Q: I just bought a new plasma TV but I'm disappointed with the
       picture. How do I fix this?
      A: In order to receive a high-def picture, you will also need to
       buy a new high-def cable or satellite box or ask your cable
       company to provide one for you. It could also be that you're not
       using an HDMI cable, so check for that. (See example answer here.)

      Q: I heard you can now stream Netflix movies through your Blu Ray
       player, how do I do this?
      A: Assuming that your Blu Ray player has this feature (most new
       models do), you still need a broadband connection from your home
       network to your player. This can easily be done with a hardwire
       Ethernet cable to your router or most manufacturers will sell a
       wireless adapter (Dongle) to connect instead. (See example answer

      Q: I have an older Blu Ray player and have never had a problem
       playing discs before, but I just bought a new release and it
       doesn't seem to be working? What could be the problem?
      A: Most Blu Ray players have the ability to be upgraded with
       software, which is required for some newly released movies. This
       can easily be done by going to the manufacturer website to
       download and install the update. It can be installed with a simple
       flash drive or by connecting to the home network. This will
       upgrade the unit and also make it compatible with newer Blu Ray
       discs. (See example answer here.)
