Lots of 3D effects, eh? Hmm!

I am hoping some good sales on BR 3D discs on http://www.salescircular.com/ca/software/bluryp.shtml ... So far, all crappy.

Yep, it's funny, I must be right because AVS just rated it on their hompage and gave it 100/100 for 2D quality, and a 90/100 for 3D. 95/100 total. It's one of the clearest movies I've seen so far in anything that was 2D.

Interesting. Is that what everyone's favorite BR 3D movie at its fullest? Hmm!

Love our new 80 incher and the Vizio soundbar with wireless remote rear speakers and subwoofer. But really getting burned out trying to program input (HDMI) for a Logitech Harmony 520 universal remote. I tried using the 55 inch M series as someone pointed out that was in their database. Also tried to tell it how to change ports through Method 1, Method 2 etc. Ready just to get a Belkin hdmi port switch. Guidance anyone?

Ok. My above note resolved. This is in the Logitech Harmony Remote software 7.7.0 :


Instructions to fix input switching on the M801D.

Go to the Devices tab in the programming software, and choose 'Settings' for your Vizio TV.
Choose 'Adjust Inputs' and click 'Next'.

Make sure 'Method 2' is selected and click 'Next'.

Adjust the inputs and ordering to match your TV, then click 'Next'.

Map all of the inputs to the matching 'InputHdmi3' type values.

Now, this alone did not fix the problem for me, but when I went to each of my activities that required a TV Input change and added a second similar command, as follows, my problem was resolved.

1. Click "Settings"
2. Select "Review the Settings for this activity" and click "Next"
3 Select "Yes, but I want to add more control of options and devices for this Activity" and click "Next"
4. Click "Save" and "Next" until you get to the screen that allows you to add additional commands.
5. Select "Add action for Vizio TV" and click "Add>"
6. Under "Send this Infrared Command", select "InputHdmi1", "Input-Hdmi2" or whichever is the correct input number for this particular activity and click "Next". You should now see two instructions to set to TV to the proper input. For some reason, adding this second command, (even though the first command "Set to HDMI #" should already accomplish this) did the trick for me.
7. If necessary, move the instruction up to the proper location relative to other customized commands you've entered that might need to happen after that input change. Click "Save".
8. Select "Yes, these settings are correct" and click "Next".

Repeat this for every activity (blu-ray, PS3, Apple) that changes the TV Input.

Figured it out was actually a bad HDMI cable. Never had that happen before.

post #313 of 888
You can use any wall mount that's 400 mm vs 400 mm M6 VESA mounti related over 110 LBS. My set is mounted, not wall mounted but stand mounted.

I live in a apartment in the city right now. Don't want to go mounting the TV here and then have to repair the wall upon move out. But it will be in my house, upon purchase of a house lol.

FYI, I asked about this and was shown their WRITTEN price match policy, which states _30_ days. However, I pointed out that their electronics "return it for whatever reason" policy is 90 days, so I could simply bypass their written 30 day price match policy by doing a return and rebuy (which would require I haul in a hefty TV), or simply put another one on a cart... pay with cc, roll it over to the returns desk, and return using my old receipt, thus crediting back to the card before it ever impacted me financially. The guy did one of those "hmmm... you're right" looks and we moved on.

When you remove signal from the TV (ie, turning off the cable box), the TV glows a giant Vizio "V" logo in the middle of the screen. It does not go away... so simply leaving the TV on with no signal is not a viable option. You have to actually turn the TV itself off to avoid this.
post #317 of 888
Yes, you're correct. However, when I turn on my Fios box it also turns on the TV automatically. Meaning I don't need the Vizio controller unless I want to access the Vizio menu choices.
post #318 of 888
My 10' by 8' wall setup, 70" M with furniture by IKEA, really works well and my Onkyo 7.2 system rocks the sound REMOVED ALL PICTURES OF SETUP AND SCREEN, APPEARS TO BE OFFENDING SOME. THANKS

How are you liking that 70" so far? Any issues of any kind? I'm looking into either the 70 or 80. It depends on the wife which way I go. Lol
post #321 of 888
love the 70, notice a slight lip syncissue on blu-ray, but it can be fixed so not concerned just haven't gotten to it yet. this size really is better than i thought it would be. 1100 dollars savings paid for all the surround sound, some new movies and the cabinetry. I could not be more pleased. 10 foot wide wall and I'm 15 feet away while viewing.... so far I 100 percent recommend this to everyone
post #322 of 888
I have not looked at prices in awhile but I see two m70 for sale down here for 1500. If you can get the 80 and afford it and not hurt yourself get that
post #323 of 888
Just left the Costco here in the Detroit Mi area and they have the M801 for $3299 with 4 instock...Madison Heights store. I'm going back and forth between doing this or an Epson 5030 front projector on a 110" screen...ARRRGGG!

I can definitely afford it, I was actually considering buying LG's 84" UHD tv, but from what people are saying it doesn't pay to get UHD unless your buying something over 100".

I wish there was a store somewhere near where I live that I could see the 70 or 80 on display. The only thing I have to go off of is what you guys are telling me about these units. So in my case everybodys opinion matters on my decision.

Umm I think people have it backwards the 4k would come into effect the closer you are. If you have room to sit back in should not matter much. I'm sure the lg84 is impressive never seen it but no plans of hdmi 2.0 should be enough to stay away and wait. Either way with no real 4k content that's consistent no point. You know what I meant by affording it some get in over there heads and are not in the right position financially . If you have room you should also look at sharp 90" and Samsung unless its the passive 3d your after. Still not a fan of edge lit tech

Lol, the Sam's clubs and Wal-Mart's here don't have them yet and they just opened a cosco in New Orleans a couple weeks ago, but I haven't had a chance to go check it out yet. And ya I would really rather have the passive over the active 3D that's why I'm limited on my selection. I understand the reasons not to go with the 4K at this time, hopefully at CES there will be some announcements about the future of hdmi 2.0 and the manufacturer's make the adjustments. I've always been a Samsung fan and almost bought the 75" but decided to hold off and see what happens after CES.
