Any other model at Monoprice that will fit this TV?

I have bought it in the past at amazon for under $70
Prices does go up and down though and as high as $100

still great mount for that price

it fits up to an 80 inch and 150 pounds

Have any of you looked at the "System" specs in the help section of the menu? My E701 says vertical refresh rate = 60hz???. I mentioned this to the Vizio tech on the phone & he acted surprised. I also have a Vizio 42" M420SL which is a 1080P 120 hz TV and it's system specs say 60 hz vertical & 720P resolution.

I could be wrong, but I assume that is the 60hz is the signal that it is recieving.

I just received my Samsclub.com delivery via Seko Logistics and the serial number is a 47 and is just within range of the potentially affected TV's. I guess in a way it's good in that this should now have a 2-year warranty. That said, I just spoke to Squaretrade about the Costco warranty for $99 and they are telling me that it would only be a total of 4 years coverage, not 5, despite Vizio giving a two-year manufacturer warranty on the television.

Terms & Conditions: http://content.costco.com/Images/Content/misc/pdf/575685.PDF says, "Coverage Start Date: After Costco Concierge or manufacturer's warranty expiration, whichever is longest."

To me, this means a total of 5-years coverage. Two from Vizio and 3 from Squaretrade. Has anyone else inquired about this? If you read the T&C, do you also interpret it to say we will get 5-years of coverage?

Mine hasn't updated yet either, still 1.1.4. Not a big deal, luckily I haven't noticed any lip sync issues or other problems. (knock on wood). This 4th one looks like a keeper biggrin.gif

Cool, was it easy to install? DId you use the lag bolt provided, our bought them separately at HD or Lowes?
Don't you have a picture form the side to see how close to the wall the TV is?

Thanks in advance...

I used the lag bolts that came with it. Put 2 of them each (top and bottom) into 2 studs, for a total of 4. It's very sturdy. I'll take a side pic tonight.

Just wondering how far into the future it this set going to be available before it will be replaced by a newer version.
french_guy's Avatar french_guy 05:51 PM 02-12-2013
I am doing the first test....and I have to admit that I am a little bit dissapointed !!!
First of all, I don't know what's going on, but the sound is regularly "dimming", to a point I can't hear anything. It last for 15 sec, and then comes back !!! Does that mean the TV is faulty?
I am using my Oppo DVD player
But I am having the same issue with my Vizio Bluray player
And the image quality is not what i was expecting.....
I know i need more time to teak the settings, but....
I found the PQ better on my projector (Sanyo PLV-Z5 / 720p "only") on a 106" screen
And I watched Avatar (bluray)..Much better of course, but still "strange"....I find that it's not crisp as it should be

I will have to find my calibration DVD, and try to optimize the settings

But I am already thinking to buy the Samsung Plasma 64" at Costco (~$500 cheaper by the way) to make a side by side comparison....Return policy at Costco is so great!!!

Quick question. Had my 70 for a couple days now, and in messing with my picture settings, I've seem to have lost the soap opera effect (Yea I'm one who actually likes that lol) any suggestions on How to get it back?

Try this:

Vivid
Back light 80
Brightness 50
Contrast 75
Color 65
Tint 0
Sharpness 8

Cool
Red 00
Green 97
Rest 128

Advanced
SME high
RCM precision
Noise reduction low
MPEG off
Color enhancemeny rich
Adaptive Strong
Film auto
off
off

Gives me a bright, clear, sharp picture.

Rick

That 60 should represent the refresh rate which is how many times / sec the screen update, the higher the freq the better the fast motion

Here ya go....

The TV is 2.2 inches thick, and the front is right at 3 inches from the wall.

Richard, I thought SME set to off provided the least amount of motion blur.

Looks very nice
Like I said in a previous post, I am a little bit dissapointed with that TV
But I need to spend more time to do a calibration......I bought a calibration disc a few years ago (DVD, not for HD though), I need to find it and "play" with it

There are HD test patterns in the calibration area of AVS. Here:

I got really wierd results using the SD Avia DVD.

I still have issue with sound going up and down
Oppo DVD player is hooked up to HDMI
Any idea what I should look for?

Has anyone here noticed a "burning resistor" smell coming from their 701? I notice it whenever it's on. It's very slight but noticable

Not At all ... gotta say that doesn't sound good (or smell good in your case).

Definitely NOT normal that I have seen ... this would have been found someone if that was common.

If this continues you may look into replacing your current set.

Try turning on/off SRS TruVolume.
french_guy's Avatar french_guy 04:57 AM 02-14-2013
I tried, but with SRSTruvolume off, the sound is very low
I have to set it at more than 50 to start to hear something...!!!
When I turn SRSTruvolume back on, it's much better but sooner or later, sound will go down for ~15 sec and will come back normal

Does anyone have lip sync issue with 701i? My 601i has plenty and thinking to replace it with 701i.
andy sullivan's Avatar andy sullivan 08:53 AM 02-14-2013
I notice just a very little on my Jan build mostly on ESPN. I am not using the 701 speakers but running my sound via HDMI through a Yamaha receiver.
