Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be
able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part
inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty,
this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost
will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned
that the cost could be considerably higher. You should call the
manufacturer for your full range of options.

1080P is a quality you'll only get with a blue ray quality video. Therefore, you won't get 1080P on cable tv. If your cable provider has HD channels available, you'll be able to get 720 or 1080i quality video (on those channels only). For the best quality, make sure you are using an HDMI cable. Just be sure your cable box supports an HDMI output. Your Vizio definately supports that type of input. If you have a PS3 or alternative blue ray player, you'll be able to watch 1080P.

This is often called the "Soap Opera" effect...I had a similar problem and found that changing the settings helped tremendously. Here are the settings I use:
Picture Mode: Movie
Noise Reduction: strong
Color enhancement: off
Advanced Adaptive Luma: Off
Enhanced Contrast Rato: off
Color Temperature: Normal
Smooth Motion Effect: low
Real Cinema Mode: Precision
Also, there's a great thread on the Soap Opera effect here:

SOURCE: 1080p lcd hdtv 50+ inch.
If no settings have been changed it means your backlight is dimming. This is a common issue with LCD TV's however it usually doesn't happen this soon. The best thing to slow down the dimming process is to lower your contrast settings, however what you really should do is calibrate your television either professionally or by using a calibration DVD or Blu-Ray with color filters.
