If your Direct TV box is HDTV compatible then the best connection would be HDMI, and Componant Cables (Red, Green, Blue, w/Red, White) would be the second choice.

If your Direct TV box is not HDTV compatible only SD compatible, the best connection would be S-Video (S-Video cable with audio cables), Composite Video (Yellow, w/Red, White), or Coax cable.

All of the above cables can be purchased at your local Radio Shack, Best Buy, Walmart etc..

My ill dads Vizio VO320E showed classic symptoms of lightening damage so we purchased a new main board. Now the screen lights up but is showing pink and yellow horizontal stripes and some vertical sha


Mr. John either one of two things from start u have done right this is a common thing on flat sets hooked to Direct boxes by HDMI having surges come from box to set. The main board usually needs replacing, so either u received a bad board or u have multiple issues and possibly the T-CON board got surged from main board. This board is located above main and power in center at very top of screen. This will cause symptom that u are describing. Hope this helps.

42 inch vizio has picture (direct tv) but no sound. Tv is not on mute.


Did you check the RCA AV Cables? The ones with the red, white yellow?

What is the connection you have from Direct TV box to your TV. You might want to start on that.

It might probably as well related to any of the remote controls settings. Either of the Direct TV control or TV Control.

1. Check the cables
2. Check if there is any function on the Direct TV remote that will turn off the sound
3. CHeck the Vizio TV Menu Settings.
4. Try with other component such as DVD to discard the possibility of malfunctioning VIZIO Speakers.

Vizio offer a good customer service if still under warranty.

God Bless You!!

The Vizio does not have Internet capabilities. You need to hook up a computer via the VGA or HDMI port. Then youor computer controls what you do with the intenet.

Vizio tv w/direct tv lost sound is there a reset button


Vizio does not have a RESET button, the best approach is unplug the TV.

1. Make sure nothing is muted
2. Hook up a dvd to it and try playing it if you got sound reboot your direct tv box by unplugging it.
3. Go to step 1
4. if DVD does not have sound then the tv will need to be looked at for other causes.

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

Hooking up new tv to surround sound


I recently purchased a vizio 37" LCD tv, I have tried everything in hooking up my Sony DVD surround system to the TV. However, I found no audio output on this TV. Could you tell me if there is a way to hook the tv directly up to the surround without an output?
Is there something else I need to buy?
