I relate to the definion that says an expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less.


This is parcularly true of the computer world where knowledge in one area does not necessarily equate to the same depth of knowledge in another area. It is geng less possible to find someone who can help in all areas of compung, let alone crossover areas such as home entertainment as well.


Why is this? Part of the problem is keeping on top of current trends in design. As an example, I recently had to install a new 4K UHD television, where headphones as well as an external amplifier feed were required. Trouble is that, in common with many TV’s now, there was no headphone socket on the TV.


This isn’t the end of the world if there is a digital audio feed out from the TV, but it does introduce an extra level of complexity that regular owners won’t have the knowledge to sort out.


So what if you are someone, who up to this point has been able to keep up with your tech, but things have moved too quickly and you now feel off the pace? Is there anything you can do about this?


It may be strange for someone who makes their living from computer and home entertainment services to say this, but yes, there are some things you can do to become more of an expert on your own tech.


First off, there is probably a user manual for your new kit somewhere. You may have to search, but there is likely a suitable PDF file on the Internet. One caveat; there are numerous websites that offer user manuals to download. Do not use them unless you

have absolutely no alternave. At best you will be charged, at worst your computer may become infected with something nasty. Always start off with the manufacturer’s own website first.


Secondly, Google is your friend. If you are having some trouble, chances are that someone else has already had the same problem and has posted about it.


Thirdly, someone may have already recorded a video on YouTube showing you exactly what you need.


Obviously with the last two, be very careful with such advice, it’s not all correct. If in doubt, seek professional help. But using some good sense, you can learn to help yourself.
