Vizio Model M470SV HDMI port nor working (won't recognize dvd player,Xbox,play station etc)


This unit has four HDMI ports. Input is not automatically set to the port that your devices are connected to. Take a look at the markings that correspond to the port that your peripherals are connected to, then use the Remote Control to change the respective HDMI port.

With your external device connected and turned on, press the HDMI button on the Remote Control several times in succession until the proper HDMI port is displayed. Output from your device should now be displayed on the screen.

Hook up xbox 360 tv


What kind of receiver? Do you have anything else like DVD player going thru receiver? My receiver has 3 hdmi in and 1 out (to tv) so all those equipment would just go to "hdmi" on tv.
Another way to do it is put your tv on exterior audio... for all sound to go thru your receiver.

I am not getting a signal on my tv when I connect to the receiver using an HDMI cable. What do I do?


First eliminate sources. For example, test another source like a dvd player / xbox,playstation gaming system, etc. If your tv recognizes these sources then it is a problem with your reciever and not the tv. If the tv does not recognize the other devices you tested then the hdmi port on your tv is bad.

Vizio SV470XVT will not output Dolby 5.1 from optical out..


TV's only will output 5.1 from HD stations. If you have a DVD player, XBOX 360, etc connected through HDMI, then the TV will only send stereo PCM through the optical out.

Vizio vw42lf hdmi problem


The factory menu won't help you diagnose anything. If you are having issues on both HDMI ports, definitely check the cable and that the output works on the DVD player, try this on another TV if possible. If all else fails, call Vizio @ 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will send one of us techs out to replace the main A/V board, that should resolve your problem.

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

Compatibility Issue with HDMI Switch?


anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
