After I buy a expensive product I try to refrain from looking at new stuff for at least a couple years so I don't know much about what's out there now but I'm still real happy with this display. And it reaffirms my purchase when I have new friends or relatives view it and go wow. Then they ask me what I paid for it and I don't hesitate to tell them.

Good advice I am passing this onto the wife, she likes to buy new shiny things rather quickly.

Who needs 4K?... just go see your optometrist.

My local Costco now has the 80" 4k tv. I couldn't tell much of a difference. But those sitting 13 feet away won't notice either.

80" Vizio LED - (60" Vizio plasma - retired)
Harmony 890 Remote
X10 Commander Iphone App = full control of lights, fireplace, pool, shades, from Iphone

Turned on my M801d-A3 today after being gone for a week. Saw a popup about a firmware update but it was gone before I could read it. Checked my settings and saw the active firmware was 1.60.10-028.0090. Didn't have a chance to see what, if anything, changed.

Question TWC's DCX3200M P3 cable box's RC with a Vizio M801D-A3 HDTV?

Has anyone gotten it to work fully? Not all buttons work correctly or even work. Just some work like power, volume, etc. Mute is input button, etc. BTW, it is a 1056B03 RC. I tried 1758 code from http://www.urcsupport.com/html.php?page_id=618 which was better, but not all buttons work like channels.

Thank you in advance.

Mine works great.

Only thing I have modified is adding a 90° prism to the bottom of the remote IR sensor/receiver.

Hmm, so you were able to use your cable box's remote control to control the TV fully.

Yes, I have the TV set up on IR and the DirecTV DVR set up as RF.

Surround setup for BluRay, movies, etc.

Would you be willing to share any information on the prism setup? I assume this helps direct the IR signal to the Visio IR receiver (located in a non-optimal orientation with respect to the intended viewer).


Part link?
How did you install it?
Got pics?


Thanks in advance.

It's a Right-Angle Optical Glass Prism from Amazon sold by xUmp Science.

Shipping is almost as much as the prism but still under $10 total.

I used two thin strips of Velcro on each side of the prism and attached the other sides of the Velcro in the same orientation on the underside of the TV where the IR window is.

I tried double sided tape but it didn't seem to hold well enough.
