Sit down & go over what you want, & where it's going. We may make recommendations that would allow for better performance such as viewing angle, sun glare, speaker placement, & echo.
We will unpack & Setup your TV to the on the Stand & Setup the Surround System/Speakers.
In the interest of safety, we will examine your stand before using to see if it is suited to your TV and equipment you are placing in it. We will never setup a TV and equipment on a stand that we feel is not sturdy enough or a structurally sound enough to securely hold the weight. If this is determined to be the case, we can discuss alternative options or placement. We also want to make certain your equipment can properly breathe, as heat it the leading cause of equipment failure.
Install video & audio cords between your equipment & TV. The wires that come with your equipment can be used but may not provide the best picture & sound. If you have purchased wire, we can use that, otherwise, we do carry the proper wires on the truck for purchase at less than store pricing. We recommend 6' wires (HDMI, Video, Audio) for equipment on a stand, and at least a 10' subwoofer wire.
Connect up to 5 video sources (like a HD cable/satellite box, BluRay/DVD player, Wii/Xbox, etc) to your TV & Surround System in one room.
Make sure that all the settings for that equipment are set to give the fullest picture & sound to the TV & Surround System.
Show you how to use all your stuff with the new TV & Surround System. We will even go into the TV menu & label the inputs, turn off the ones you aren't using & label your remotes. We will also email you a worksheet that lists your TV settings in case visitors start playing with the remote settings or the dog sits on the remote.
We will take pictures of the front & back of the equipment & put it in your file so that if you do have a problem, we can usually get you back up & running over the phone. This saves you the price and time of setting up a service call for something simple.
While we're there we can also do a TV Calibration for a discount since we are already on site. Just click the link to find out more about this service.
If you end up with too many remotes, we do carry Harmony Remotes on the truck. You can find out more about this & other options by checking out Install Accessories
This Service is for the Simple setup of your New or Existing Home Theater. There is now concealing wires in the wall, instead all wire is exposed. The typical situation that this service would be used for would be a TV on a stand with equipment directly below the TV, Center/Left/Right speakers at or near the TV, subwoofer to side of stand, & wire for rear speakers running along baseboard to rear location. This does not include hanging the speakers (usually the rears), or hiding the wires in the walls for speakers & TV.
We can go further, but a ON-SITE Consult is recommended to spec out the project beforehand.
This install up to 50' of (4) conductor speakerwire for rear speakers, & 10' for each of the front 3 speakers.
