Yeah, but since I don't have anything with S-Video, and by the time I can afford it, I'll have the Bose relegated to the bedroom, it won't matter.
My dad recently went off the deep end and updated everything he had (kinda like buying a Formula One racer and not even having a learner's permit). He had satellite and a VCR with regular TV. Went and bought a DVD player, a new Sony surround sound processor, a Mitsubishi HDTV with integrated digital tuner, kept the satellite, and VCR...Paid an extra $50 to have the store's "Pro" come out and hook it up.
Three hours of my "will work for Pizza and Diet Coke" time later, we undid the "Pro's" screw-ups and got it running...it would have been less time for me, but I was unfamiliar with the whole concept of everything running through the TV and didn't get to the instruction manual until about half-way through the third hour (I hate manuals, they read like stereo instructions ;-)).
That's what I charge.....per hour.
Of course I come out with test discs, filters, and an SPL meter.
The sound and picture adjustments alone usually take about an hour and a half. (never mind the physical hooking up of the equipment)
I then give a complete tutorial on how to work the beast....
And then leave my home phone number!
