    Dick, You should be able to pick a good brand name one up at newegg.com for under $30. You might get one that has a couple of ports for future use. Let me know

      Dick,

      You should be able to pick a good brand name one up at newegg.com for under $30. You might get one that has a couple of ports for future use.

      Let me know if you obtain one and we will go from there. I will solve whatever problems you see after that.

      Thanks.

Like any software related issue, especially device drivers, it is the luck of the draw as to whether or not the driver is well written. Unless software / hardware vendor are swamped with complaints, complaints that are nearly impossible to demonstrate, they will do nothing to address these issues.

As a software developer for over 25 years, I have come to the conclusion that most of the adapters out there are junk, either because of the hardware or software, and I avoid them whenever possible.

This may occur randomly after a couple of days or a week, but may be due to my cat wandering around the back of the TV and upsetting the cables or even sitting on the WS console.
