Breathe deeply. Don’t panic. Everything is going to be okay. That hole you’ve just knocked through your drywall? It’s entirely repairable. That crooked speaker mounted on your wall? You can take that down, grab a level, and reinstall it... and all those low-quality cables, they can always be replaced. Of course, you could’ve saved yourself this trouble if you had contacted Future Shop’s ConnectPro service. Let’s take a look at the most common problems which consumers encounter after purchasing a new home theatre system, and explore how ConnectPro can help save you from any further complications.

So your ambition got the best of you, and you bought an enormous television – something like the SHARP AQUOS 60” LED HDTV, which is currently on sale for $1599.99 (that’s over $300.00 off its regular retail price, but only until September 13th).  Now you’ve brought it home, and are met with a surprising dilemma: there’s nowhere to put it. ConnectPro can help you explore a variety of different options – from TV stands to wall mounts, from in-wall wiring to more conventional configurations. TV and video installation packages begin at 149.99, making ConnectPro a viable, affordable option for solving your home theatre headaches.

Let’s say you’ve just purchased a pair of Klipsch Reference Tower Speakers – and you’re determined to get them hooked up to your old Sony 5-disk CD changer. This task may not be as easy as it sounds. The playback crackles and sounds bass-heavy, which doesn’t mix well with the audio properties possessed by the layout of your living room. Don’t lose hope yet! Perhaps an EQ adjustment or an alternative speaker placement will be able to better accommodate your preferences. Why not give a ConnectPro Expert a call – they can help you set up any sound configuration, no matter how complicated. A wide variety of ConnectPro audio packages are available, starting as low as $49.99.








So your new television is finally set up, you’ve just donned your brand new Panasonic Active 3D Glasses, and you’re ready for an afternoon of movies courtesy of your Panasonic 50” 1080p 3D Plasma Smart TV – when you suddenly notice that the image appears slightly too dim for your liking. Since this is your first time enjoying a 3D movie on your new television, you haven’t yet adjusted its image to your specific preferences. Now’s the timePanasonic Active 3d glasses.jpg to get in touch with a ConnectPro Expert, who can assist you with calibrating your television’s performance based on its physical placement, your viewing distance from the screen, and a host of other factors.
