Certainly - I worry about the S-video lug in my OSD. It's a *tight* fit. 
I need to disconnect this when recording from the video camera as the 
video input circuitry is the same (two pins on the IC - either comp 
video on one of them, or S-video on the two). Thankfully it is a less 
snug fit on the satellite receiver, so I usually unplug that end.

You too, huh?

I have, and reflowing the solder worked. Fixing the ribbon cable from 
the equaliser on the front flap, that was harder. Hehe... Looking back 
at it, it's kinda comical to have equalisers and stuff on *tape*.

Best wishes,
