Likely because the TV's optical output is dumbed down to 2.0. What was Pioneer thinking by only providing 1 digital input? You are forced to use the TV as the switcher, so no 5.1 sound. I can here...

If Fios that would be good. The Fios boxes have excellent zoom functions if you use the component connection. Zoom function is not available with HDMI, but the picture is just as good with component.

Most TV's don't handle zoom functions well. What is you source (Fios, Xfinity, OTA, etc . . . . . )?

The Vizio is great for TV & movie viewing if listening at moderate to high volume levels. Not satisfying when the volume had to be lowered as I could never dial in an appropriate setting.

I believe they are the same, but the 1010 & 1030 are only sold at Costco.

Yes, but just gave it to my mother to use with her Panny Plasma. Doesn't sound as good at her place as it did here & won't recognize Xfinity remote codes. Not sure if it is because of room acoustics,...

I can't imagine the sound would be full range w/o the sub. It's just too thin to have any low mid depth on its own.

Never got that far as I couldn't get the sub to stay connected. It would link up right away, but would toggle on & off every couple seconds. I didn't think it sounded nearly as good as the reviewers...

Your TV actually displays a picture before the sound bar starts playing? I've never had a flat screen that starts up that fast.

I don't think you can make the Vizio stay on all the time.

Yes the Vizio 2.0 & 3.0 models behave the same way (volume up turns on / turns off after 10-15 minutes of inactivity)

Sounds defective to me, can you return it? After reading the reviews on that Toshiba, it doesn't sound like a keeper, so I suggest looking for a more reliable unit.

The 2 units are the same as far as I can tell. The ATS-1030 seems to only be available at Costco.

The Yamaha can learn remote codes, so the unit turns on & off with the TV. Volume up/down, power...

It's more of a personal preference thing, so hard to say what settings are best for your tastes. Are you happy with the default settings?

Sounds like the Yamaha at least did a bit better in this department. Too bad Sony didn't design the unit to learn remote codes like the Yamaha does. (Yes, even Fios codes) Otherwise the Sony is a...

Deeper male voices can be heard through the sub, so it may blend better with the sound bar if closer to it in the front of the room. Too bad they didn't make the rear speakers wireless instead.
