Easiest will be the VGA cable (15 pins on each end), you will also have to set the PC to the native resolution of your TV otherwise you will get the message on the screen saying "format not supported".
You will also need an audio cable, it has male mini stereo phone plug at each end, one end will go into the green audio out athe PC sound card, the other end will go into TV PC audio line input (green jack).
Best Buy should have them.
You should down load the user manual and read all about your TV.

I need a manual for vizio tv model xvt472n


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vizio-XVT472SV-TVs-manual/id/23616ci265/t/2/

Close as I could find for your manual. It sghould give you the answers as it is very close to yours. Also - please note Visio does hacve some of the best customer support I have ever used. They have always been extremely helpful to me. BUT - remember to be polite! As the old saying goes you get more flies with honey than vinegar. I am almost certain those who are rude do not get the superior help there tech support line will give if you are kind!

I broke my Vizio 42inch E422VA screen. Can I have it replaced?


Yes but the cost to replace it will exceed the cost of a new set. I wish I would have come across your post earlier. I just sold a E422VA parts tv for $171 shipped with a mint LCD screen !!! your best bet would be to part it out. Either throw it on Ebay or try to sell it locally on Craigslist.

There wasn't a USB cord there. What cord shou8ld I buy?


Printer connection cables are not always included; this is something to watch for when purchasing new printers.

As an example, Lexmark sells a USB (2meter) cable for use with their printers. It has a Type A connector on one end (connects to computer) and a Type B connector on the other end (connects to printer).

See illustration here:

http://www.lexmarkshop.ca/product_info.php/info/p547_USB--2-Meter--Cable.html?XTCsid=8uf9jfg007037lui6nbrrvkko5

You should however be able to purchase a suitable cable at your local supplier; there are also on-line suppliers who are very reasonably priced.

Try to stay under 10 feet or 2 meters in length and ask for a cable with a Type A and and a Type B connector for use with an USB printer interface.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote.

How do I get from 480 to 1080p on my tv? I have an HD box on my vizio 42 inch tv but my channels are still showing 480?


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.

Thinking about buying a used Vizio 42"


Don't buy it. VIZIO is not standing by their products.

My GV42L had issues from the ssart and now it shows No Signal and shuts of in 2-3 seconds. I read many similar issues on this site with VIZIO.

Pip and pop


It sounds like your other TV had 2 tuners which allowed you to watch 2 programs at the same time. You can still watch two programs, but the second one will have to come from a second source. See below for the possible combinations that the PIP/POP feature can be used by this TV.
