I want to take the plunge and disable SVM this evening. Because I have heard only rave reviews from you who have done this already, I was just going to snip the wires. Please tell me I am doing the right thing! If some disaster ensues, can they be easily reconnect with a service call? Also, can someone tell me SPECIFICALLY which wires to snip? What color are they? Are they the black wires with the grey connectors? If I follow the examples on Brett's site, is there any room for error? How drastic (or not) will the picture improvement be? Also, my user settings are now set pretty close to how they are reccomended on this site to defeat 'red push'. What adjustments will have to be made in the user or service menue settings for optomizing the picture? (I don't have Avia or Video Essentials). Thanks for your help!!
