    6 Tips when Mounting your Flat Screen TV

  • Running out of TV Inputs?

    Posted on 17 July 2014 by Monique

    Do you need more TV inputs?

    You don't need to spend a fortune to make your life a little easier.

    Using a Home Entertainment Control Centre gives you lots of additional audio and video inputs, so you can connect several different source devices (eg: DVD player, VCR, BluRay player, video game consoles, etc) to the switch box, and then connect the switch box to your TV. Then you can easily switch between your devices, either with the remote control or with the buttons on the switch box! No need to struggle behind your TV to disconnect and reconnect cables to get the right device working! [Read More]

  • How to install In-Ceiling Speakers

    Posted on 15 May 2014 by Monique

Having written about our in-ceiling speakers a few times, I knew it was time I had some installed. As they were being installed, I thought that I’d just insert myself into the process and take some photos so you can see how it’s done. [Read More]
