I'm not a techy person so I just followed the instructions on the Vizio VHT215 manual. I have my Uverse and blueray hooked up to the soundbar. I'm at work right now and can't explain how I did it, but I just followed the manual. I haven't tried to sync the soundbar remote to my universal uverse remote, but the VHT215 remote is so small and simple, I don't mind using it.

I am looking to get that too, but wanted to see what you think if that's what you have? DigitalTrends.com reviewed this one and stated sound wise, its up there with $500.00 units and is one of the best deals for the price. My sams has it for $199.99. Vizio's website MSRP is $249.99
I got the VHT215 at costco about 2 weeks ago for $199. I'm not a BF person so $199 was great considering it was at walmart for $260's. Like I said in my post earlier, I'm by all means, not an audiophile, but I really love it for movies/cable/sports/bluerays/music. I just wanted a nice front speaker system because I was never a fan of full blown surround sound with all the extra speakers. It does what I need for a great price.

Yea. I got the VHT215 for $199 2 weeks ago no BF sale or anything. I'm pretty sure it'll be cheaper next week....
edit-a pic of the tv mounted on a monoprice wallmount. don't mind the jacked up, uneven tv stand. that was my wifes from her OLD apt years ago. I want to get a new one soon. you might be able to see the 4 holes under the tv where i tried to mount the soundbar. it became a hassle so i just put it back on the tv stand below. we just moved in so everything looks blank. In the tv stand is just my uverse box and blueray player. to the left is the wireless subwoofer and an unhooked xbox. the loudest I had to use it was to seal my grout in my foyer which is pretty far away. it came with a plug for an mp3 player and i had it blasting and had no problems with it.Edited by itr0863 - 11/21/12 at 7:13pm
