This is probably where the problem lies. You changed the garage lights, and would be the first place to start looking for bad wire connections. Turn breaker off first, and re-check the connections.

BTW: these guys are professional electricians here. they do this shat everyday for a living. I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss any of their ideas. Put your ego in check for a moment, and do what they asked you to do.

You checked every outlet. How? Did you open all of the outlets and check for voltage? Did you visually check for burn marks? Use your nose to check for burned wires? What about the outlet behind the TV?

Did you check the lighting fixtures as well?
