Official Vizio "M-Series" Razor Owners Survival Thread - Page 5

post #121 of 126
I have the 55" coiming next week, I'm super excited to be finally going 3D. Out of the calibration settings on page 1 which is the best one? I've always been lucky using other people's settings. Thanks for this thread and for the help.

Try Calibrated or Dark Calibrated Mode,,,turn down the sharpness to 0-15 range. Use the Normal Temperature setting. In Advanced Settings I have all set to off except Smart Dimming and Film Mode to Auto. Then play with the settings after you get use to it. Hope u enjoy it...the 3d is a lot of fun.

This is a good thread to check out also http://www.avsforum.com/t/1452199/official-vizio-m-series-razor-mxx1i-thread

Happy owner of the Vizio M701d-A3. However, recently seen an issue with two of my Blu-rays, Avengers and Batman Begins (both are 2D versions). Some movies look pixelated and have somewhat of a Scanner Darkly effect, where you see several lines following the lines of edges, like the rings of a cut tree.

Like:


But with Batman, not Keanu.

Any idea what would cause this? It's not happening to all the 2D movies (The Dark Knight and Prometheus played fine), and so far none of the 3D movies have done this.

Your hardware setup sounds pretty identical to mine. We have different equipment and providers, but the setup is basically the same.

 

So, theoretically, all you have left to do to get 5.1 pass through in reverse (TV back to the receiver) is to do the following:

 

1) Enable HDMI control on your Audio receiver.

 

2) Enable CEC control on your Vizio TV.


Do #1 first, then move on to #2. If you've done #1 correctly, you will see your Audio receiver in the "Device Discovery" window that appears as part of the CEC setup on the Vizio.

 

On my Denon receiver, it was a one click setting "HDMI Control > ON/OFF". It was set to "Off" by default. Just had to set it to "On" and I could finally see my Denon receiver on the Vizio CEC setup screen. This is the key to making everything fall into place.

 

 

Here's a quick summary of the proper CEC setup on the Vizio to enable reverse audio from TV to AV receiver (this works with my Denon AVR-591)...

 

  1. Vizio > Audio > TV Speakers: On/Off
  2. Vizio > Audio > Digital Audio Out: Bitstream/PCM
  3. Vizio > System > CEC > CEC Function > Enable/Disable
  4. Vizio > System > CEC > System Audio Control > On/Off
  5. Vizio > System > CEC > Device Discovery > Your AV Device (Surround Sound Audio Receiver) Must Appear Here or go back to Step #1 above

 

A few more tips:

 

  • On my setup, I have to switch the Denon's output source to "TV" in order to get the audio pass through on my surrounds.
     
  • I had to enable 5.1 audio output from my Amazon Instant streaming settings. The default audio output is "Stereo". You may have to do something similar for Netflix

 

Hope that helps!


Awesome!

This worked great on my setup! I also have to switch my Denon's output source to TV to get surround sound :-)

Thanks for all your help.

Hey guys! I just bought a new 55". after initially setting it all up I was displeased to find the tv would not accept ANY IR signals. New batteries, using my Galaxy S4, nuthin... so after packing it back up (PITA) and driving back to costco, I traded it in for another one... Just to have it do THE SAME THING! So called Vizio, they have me take batteries out press every button twice put batteries in. remote lights up, but still no-go. they tell me use my own batteries. viola! it works... weird eh? the vizio batteries showed full charge on my multimeter... 

So, now that I have shared that story, I have another problem (besides the wifi-remote feature only working for 5 minutes) I cant get any of my devices to work with the remote (even with exact model numbers matching). and I cant seem to find a device list for this remote. I even tried my Yamaha receiver and I know almost ALL Yamaha receivers use the same codes for volume control. anybody else have this issue? really dont want to fork out $70 for a decent universal when my stylish vizio remote should have the capabilities.
