IR segments will display an outgoing animation.

5) Aim the remote control at the device (e.g., TV)

There is a chance that your remote will not produce a code for you TV. The remote manufacturers decide how many different brand names they want to support when they are manufacturing the remotes. They may have felt that Vizio TV's were not common enough for them to program then into their units. If you still have your original remote for the Vizio TV you can try and use your remotes learning mode. Page 18-19 in your manual describe what you have to do to try this out.
If you are unable to find a code or have your URC learn your old remote you may have to look at purchasing a different Universal remote. There are more expensive "Pro" universal remotes out by companies such as the Logitech Harmony lines of remotes. Their manufacturers program in far more different types of remotes into their units. They also allow you to go to their website to download more codes.
