I am looking at this same tv, wondering if you bout this one at Costco?

I was at their web site just two days ago, and now it's not offered online as of today.

This is the Only 22" LCD that has a 1080P pannel, and 1920 x 1080 resolution.

I even told my Aunt to get on the ball and pick one up, but hopefully they are still available. Is there a review any where else? Thanks.

I didn't buy mine at Costco but I do believe they sell this model. Great TV in 22" category.

Vizio is the first company to offer 1080p at this size, We can expect maybe 26" with 1080p sometime this year I suppose.

Anyone else out there own or thinking about buying one of these new VO22LF models? If so, I'd like to hear from ya. I love mine so far. It's a big improvement over the VO22L I got rid of. Has more controls over the video settings and also has a menu function that actually allows you to enable the 5000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio. Let's here from ya!

Can you enter a channel that it didn't find in a scan? Alternatively, can you "add digital" channels? My VO22L has real problems there as I must rotate the antenna to 3 different positions to receive the channels.

The only way I know of adding channels is by autoscan. I don't think there is any other way to do it. Try calling Vizio's tech support. I know you can get thru to them on weekends too. They've helped me in the past with my old TV.

Got mine at Costco last week. It was on the web site one day and gone the next so I called Costco to check anyway since what is on the web is not always in stores. They had 47 of them. So call your local stores. If you know a channel number you can use the number pad I think even if it did not scan it. The Electronic program guide is not available even thought the manual says push the guide button 2x, called TS for this. Also to change the backlight setting the Dynamic Contrast Ratio must be OFF.

What does;

Display Compatibility: HDTV (720p)

mean? It's a 1080p display that accepts 1080p input. Is this like some of the early 1080p sets I read about that had 1080p panels and inputs, but downscaled everything to 720p in between?

Figured out how to adjust backlight in "custom" mode. I seems the factory default setting for DCR turns it "ON" for the AV, HDMI, composite inputs, and "OFF" for Standard. So you have to go into one of them and change DCR to "OFF". The manual can be very vague on this procedure.

I have been looking at this model to use in my office but that is was has been making me wonder?

Display Compatibility: HDTV (720p)
Signal Compatibility: Supports 480i (SDTV), 480P (EDTV), 720P (HDTV), 1080i (HDTV), 1080p Video Signals

Does anyone have any insight on was this means? I've looked through the pdf manuals on the larger vizios and they list the "display compatibility" as 1080p and omit any mention of "signal compatibilty" there has to be a reason, and it makes me feel as if this 22 is not 100% 1080p.

The other descrepincy is it says right on the website overview that it has a 178 viewing angle, but the specs show 170/160.. Surely this is a TN panel at that price, but just wondering where they can pull a 178 degree number from to claim? Is there some bs degree measuring system to claim outrageous specs for viewing angle like there is with contrast and ms rating that flaunt dynamic instead of typical ratings.

I have one and it for sure does not have 178 V&H viewing angle. more like the 170 and 160. I have a Toshiba 40 that can be viewed at much greter angles, It claims 178. I noticed this discrepincy on the web site and other site technical specs, but figured since it was being used in the bedroom at about 8 feet I could adjust the set and it seems OK. I assume it up converts all inputs to 1080P just like my Toshiba 40XF550

I've had mine since September 2008 and no pixel problems. It gets lots of use. Probably on for 8 to 10 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I am going ot pick one up at Sam's for my son tomorrow. We will use it for FIOS and Playstation 2. I may throw in a dvd player if the poicture is nice. The room is only 11x11 so this tv should work well. I own two plasmas so this will be my first LCD so I do not know what to expect.
