comment Acro package: Commas in the acronym
Well that seems to work, thanks @cgnieder. Knew it wasn't a big ask but didn't expect it to be so simple. I guess it helps when you know what you're doing ;) Do you want to write that up as an answer so I can accept it?

comment “Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup” error
Oh well, sorry I couldn't be of more help. Btw, what typesetting system and tex editor do you use? I wonder if the reason I got it to work is because I'm using MikTex and TeXnicCenter, and they are maybe configured differently or something?

comment “Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup” error
Unfortunately I don't think I have the skills to adeptly fix this issue, however in playing about, I've found that if you take out all the \tabularnewline \hline you get something that compiles with no errors. Hope this helps.

Hi @Heiko, thanks for the answer. When I was choosing list styles before this was an issue, I chose tabular because it looked better - longtable was too indented for me. Is there a way to modify the list so it shifts things over to the left a bit but doesn't break acro? Thanks

comment Acronym upper/lower/mixed case, and pluralisation
Hi @cgnieder, all looks to be working now. Just one thing I can't work out: if I use the phrase analogue-to-digital converter, it gets represented by the acro package as Analogue-to-digital Converter instead of Analogue-to-Digital Converter. ie. the d doesn't get capitalised. Is there a way to tell the package that this letter is to be capitalised when necessary? The alternative is that I could remove the hyphens but then the 'to' gets capitalised too, and I'd then need a command to force that word specifically to be lower case. Thanks

I did read the manual and I couldn't see where it was going wrong. But after some more investigation, it seems that it was some crud left over in the .aux file and acro or TeXnicCenter wasn't changing/clearing it. Deleting the .aux seemed to sort that and it now looks like it works on a basic level. Still have a couple of questions but hopefully I'll be able to solve them by playing with the various package options. Will let you know how it goes.
