Here is his email. Indicate that you want a calibration in the subject field. He gets flooded with email sometimes. Recently he hasn't been adding travel to his fee.

Not only no Travel Fee, but D-Nice's Calibration Fee is about $100+ lower to begin with now.

then your virus software is reporting a false positive (you should be able to override that), could also temp disable your virus application.

there is nothing wrong with the Zip...

try using The Unarchiver to extract...

http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html

There are others that will replace the standard one

As soon as he is in the NY, Long Island area I'd like to potentially book him for a cally on my 65ZT60. Does anyone kow many hours he normally recommends for the ZT before getting a calibration?

Contacted Kevin Miller, he's very polite and professional. I am just tossed up on who I would rather calibrate my set. Also, Kevin recommends 500 hours on the set before he'll calibrate, only at 210 and don't want to wait much longer ;)

D-Nice does get up to NY a lot throughout the year.. his schedule is pretty booked this month (TX, CA, CA, DC) so I'm thinking next month.. I'll ask him....

That's less than the shop rate where we have work done on our cars. biggrin.gif

He was here Friday night for 2.5 hours and did a great job on our 8G Kuro which has 8,200 hours on it. It's the best deal I've had in years. smile.gif

After a main board replacement on our Kuro I had given up on another calibration, but your heads up about D-Nice changed my mind. Thanks a lot.

well, right not it's pretty centered, maybe vertical and 6" - 12" from each side would spread it out and be more pleasing.. you may have to experiment with the distance from each side.

Not any more. Internet protection is now a good idea for Macs, but like all anti virus protection there can be false positives.
