     I have a vizio e601i-a3 TV and a vizio VHT510 surround sound system. I'm trying to program the TV remote to operate the surround sound. Nothing in the TV manual and the surround sound manual talks about a setup button on the tv remote that does not exist. anybody know how this works?

    I replaced my 5.1 speakers with a Vizio VHT510 to keep me out of the attic running the rear speakers in the new house. I have an older HK AVR receiver that does not support HDMI so I've got cables running all over the place and rely pretty heavily on the macros on my Harmony Remote. My...

    I have my Vizio 60" smart TV hooked to a Vizio VHT510 5.1 Soundbar with sub and rear speaker bia TosLink cable. The soundbar detects the type of signal being input and switches between digital and SRS depending on the signal type. Now what i cant understand is why it sounds better when its in...

    I ran across something today that I found interesting and thought I'd share. I've been looking into the Vizio VHT510 soundbar because it has 5.1 surround. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere for sale, it seems as though it's been discontinued. I decided to contact Vizio via chat to see if...

    Just this past week I installed the Toshiba SBX4250 Soundbar. It sounds good but was wondering if I could improve the surround effect by adding 2 more speakers. My room(basement-carpeted)measures 39' x 16' and my 46"flat screen is mounted in the middle so I have right at 19' on each side of the...

    How does the speaker wire connect to the subwoofer & rear speakers? I want to place the subwoofer in front of the room & the rear speakers behind my couch. Can I use speaker wire that I would buy instead of what comes with the 510?

    I have been reading a lot of reviews of the 510 and have decided its the way to go for me. From my understanding if I run everything to my tv with HDMI and then Optical out to the Soundbar I will never achieve 5.1 but instead 2.1. This seems like a waste of buying a 5.1 system. Is there a way...

    I've read a ton about the Vizio VHT510 and have heard a lot about the hardware failures associated with this system. Here's to hoping for some good ju-ju for the system that's coming in the mail next week. Can anyone give me hope that it will work out for me? Sounds like every one sold ends up...

    I have a 5.1 setup with Ascend speakers, but I really don't want to run wires under the floor/through the walls in a 1780 colonial, so I am considering a soundbar instead for the living room. (I'll install the Ascend speakers in the great room/home theatre room). So, how does a soundbar sound...

    I'm looking for a soundbar that has the option of adding rear speakers. I was looking at the Yamaha YHT-S401 but it went up $150 today in price which is pretty discouraging. I was thinking about the Vizio VHT-510 but read about issues with defective models being pretty common. I read there...

    Hi Friends, I own the Vizio VHT510 soundbar since last 1 year or so and I am quite happy with it, except for the lack of HDMI. Now my brother-in-law is in the market for a nice soundbar. Could you suggest a nice soundbar that is less than $300 and better than VHT510? I am possibly looking...

    Hello all, I have been at this for almost an hour now and cannot figure out why my vht-510 won't recognize DTS audio. I know for a fact that the movie that I am trying it with has DTS capabilities. I have made sure both the blu-ray player and tv have dts enabled. My cable setup is as follows...

    Hello all, I have a Vizio vht-510 sound system and love it. The only trouble I am having with it is getting the sound settings to my liking. I've tried for the past week but cannot seem to get it to where I want it. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best/optimal settings for the...

    I just picked up a Vizio VHT510 soundbar (I really wanted a VHT520, but who knows when this is coming out) and my soundbar constantly loses sync with my sub. They are only about 8 ft away with almost a direct line of sight. I've tried to resync many times, but it can never maintain a constant...

    Looking to possibly pick this up but wondering if it decodes Dolby True HD or DTS HD streams from blu ray disks?

    Here is a very poorly done layout of my living room, its not great, but you can kinda get the idea. Basically as far as i can tell, with the way i have everything setup, i cannot actually benefit from any of the higher end "surround bars". Would i be better off with a simple LCR soundbar...

    So I'm in a dilemma here, going to pull the trigger on a Samsung PN51D6500 and what to get a good sound system with it but under 300, can stretch it a little bit but not more than 400. Anyway not sure if I should go with a soundbar or an HTIB. For HTIB I would like wireless rear speakers...

    I have a VHT 510 connected to a Vizio XVT553SV (55" flat screen) via optical cable. I want the sound bar to come on automatically when I turn on the TV. Is there setting on the sound bar or TV that I should use? Right now, when I turn on the TV, all of the LEDs flash momentarially and then...
