I've never heard of that either, and by the way I would take what the TV guys at Costco say with a cow-lick. After hearing some of the mistakes that come out of the supposedly "trained" guys from Best Buy, I can't imagine that Costco training is much better. That might be a crass and unfair judgement, but I'm really not sure that a wholesale store can be expected to keep folks up on this stuff.
When I google for "vizio TV heat" (without the quotes), I end up with far fewer hits than with "sony tv heat". Sony even had a recall years ago. And it seems that most of the vizio links are old. I'm not sure what "extremely hot" means to you, but I'd consider returning the set.
