Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm looking to manually update the firmware of my television, but I don't know where to get the firmware download from the internet. I figured I'd ask on a Stack Exchange site, but I don't know which one would be relevant (maybe Home Repair comes closest, but that seems more contractor-based). Either I just don't see it listed, or a relevant SE site for Electronics Repair doesn't exist, or it's not recognizably named (like when I didn't realize "Skeptics" encapsulated rumors, etc.).

I'm not sure where to ask where this sort of site exists, tossed a coin between Meta Stack Exchange (here) and Discussion for Area 51. It landed heads side up, so I asked here. Please point me in the right direction.

Note in the comments below, I did find the current Area 51 "Consumer Electronics" still in definition phase, and the died-in-beta "Electronic Gadgets", neither of which is helpful in this instance, though I did add my support to Consumer Electronics so at least someone wins... :-(

Electrical Engineering is probably the closest.

I think not for a firmware question. That's more like if there was a superuser for ee.se. –  meta.michael Mar 11 '13 at 0:13
I considered it or Super User, but it doesn't fall under either of their FAQs. I found "Consumer Electronics" in Area51, which is still in definition and apparently a revisit to the 2-year-dead "Electronic Gadgets", which never survived beta phase. –  JoshDM Mar 11 '13 at 0:13
Yeh, I didn't catch the firmware part, guess you'll just have to work to get the "Consumer Electronics" Area51 proposal going. –  Lance Roberts Mar 11 '13 at 0:14
Yeah, I don't think there's anything that quite covers this right now; the problem faced by Gadgets (and probably CE as well) is that this subject tends to be ridiculously broad with relatively few experts. –  Shog9 Mar 11 '13 at 0:16
I'd be more likely to suspect that Gadgets appeared too early in SE's lifecycle, but since CE isn't hopping... maybe it is the topic. :-/ –  JoshDM Mar 11 '13 at 0:17
Yeh, it's really really broad. –  Lance Roberts Mar 11 '13 at 0:20
