Hey all, i am looking to do a little project and was needing some help with figuring how to go about it.
What i am looking to do is this:
I would like for my TV to come on automatically when the power goes out then comes back on. Normally, when the power goes out and you had the TV on, it would not come back on when the power comes back. I am thinking of setting up some TV "billboards" in a few retail places and i need a way to keep them on 24/7 without any need for users to interact with it (turning it back on if the power goes out, etc).
I am just looking for a simple schematic for an AVR-type (ATMEGA, Arduino) chip that i can hook up, detect the AC once it comes back on and send a signal to 2 wires to "click" the power button to turn the TV back on. (of course, only once would be needed after the power comes back).
Any help/ideas would be great! :)
