    I am thinking that the problem is a control issue. That is, that the unit is not switching from Analog 1 to analog 2 or the optical input. The unit does not give info on which input is operational. Maybe I should exchange for another? It's supposed to be simple, but has not been so far - except for plugging everything in.

Yes, the unit is extremely simple: a power source, an amplifier circuit with multiple outputs, a converter for the optical input and a controller - which only job is to start/stop it and select the inputs.
In your case the controlled is non responsive.
Just get a new one, and test it before taking it at home.

Probably they are on a frequency compatible only on the first input ...so if you want to use them both ...either use a mixing device or an adapter to let you insert them both in the same plug ..anyway ..Im not sure why you go for analog stuff ..and didnt used the regular entries for Tv and dvd ...Probably it doesn't have such thing ..Most systems have though..IN this case...if this is the only entry that works ..you have to use some kinda mixing device to make more than one entry to be channeled in one in-let..
or ..use something like that for to get them both in the same entry ..
this is for a 3.5 jack plug http://www.shopmania.ro/magazin~online-accesorii-audio-video~produs-adaptor-jack-3-5-mm-tata-2-x-3-5-mm-mama~p-7999228.html

You will need to take the following steps to ensure that the Vizio wireless subwoofer is working properly:1) You will want to make sure that the subwoofer is in the line of sight of the Vizio sound bar.
2) Ensure the Vizio wireless subwoofer is not beyond 60 ft. away from the sound bar.3) Unplug both the Vizio sound bar and the Vizio wireless subwoofer for 30 seconds and then plug back in.4) Try re-pairing the devices. Pairing works best when you have the devices facing each other about a foot apart during initial pairing, once they are paired you can move them to your desired location.

You're guessing. That is exactly the wrong thing to do. Get the manual.

"[D]vd 6 channel input" is for a 6-channel analog input as the name implies. I doubt you even have a source that HAS 6 analog channel outputs.

Speakers are OUTPUTS of the amplifers' speaker posts. Any one can work ANYwhere.

And that bi-wire capability, IF the speakers have it - pretend it isn't there.

How do you connect a vizio sound bar to the tv


plug in the power to each unit with the provided power adapters, turn the sound bar and subwoofer on, activate the wireless subwoofer link by pressing a button on the soundbar (or remote) and subwoofer, and connect an audio source to either the provided analog or digital audio inputs on the soundbar
Note: When using the Digital Optical input, set source device audio out to PCM

(you can hook to ur tv if it has a R/L audio output, or u can also connect it if your tv has a toslink style digital output. (most LCD and Plasma TV's have them.))
