You CAN connect the Vizio directly to a BD player and get it to accept a DTS feed,,,, after Possums post and a few others I dug out my BD player manual and found I had missed the setting option in my BD player for DTS to PCM.
Perhaps we could re-name this thread "Davyo is a dumb-ass".
With the Vizio now getting a DTS PCM feed it works and plays fine,,,, no longer any issues with DTS and the Vizio VHT210,,,,, before anyone rags on me for posting incorrect information, dont bother,,,, I already feel bad enough.
As a soundbar junkie I always try to give the most honest, best, opinions of any bar I am posting about and in this case I screwed up,,,, my personal apology to the Vizio VHT210,,, I hope I didnt hurt it's feelers.
In light of my screw-up has my opinions of the Vizio vs the JVC changed ?,,, a little,,, with the DTS to PCM feed the dialog did get much better with the Vizio so the dialog is not overpowered by the surround effects as they were in my other shoot-out.
As far as which bar I think is better,,,, at this point Im going to say they are both completly equal.
As far as which bar am I going to keep and which one gets returned,,, I dont know that one either,,, if I had to pick between one bar or the other I guess I would say I would keep the JVC,,,, aside from my DTS issue being resolved I still think the JVC has the slight edge in overall sound quality.
Im thinkin I might just keep both soundbars and change them up every so often when I get bored.
Ok,,,, Im going to go crawl in a hole now because of my screw-up
