First Suggestion: Ditch Vizio's claimed surround sound, get a REAL surround sound system. You can pick up a decent one for ~$300
Second Suggestion: Refer to first suggestion
I just purchased a 50" plasma HDTV ,this TV has built in surround sound ability and comes with two sattlelite speakers and a subwofer . problem # one is when I turn off the TV a rather large lite on the subwofer that stays on when yopu have the surround sound paired with the wireless speakers and subwofer and TV will continue to blink when TV is off and it does not stop unless you unplug the subwofer . Another problem with the surround sound is in the manual it says when Iam getting true 5.1 dolby digitial surround sound a red lite on the TV lower right hand speaker will lite up displaying 5.1 in red ,I've yet to been able to get this lite to appear even when putting a movie in my DVD player that says it has 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Digitial ,my DVD a Samsung also says Dolby Digitial on the front panel ? I have this set hooked up via coaxail cable and SPFID with the DVD player. Now I may have it configured incorrectly , I have the DVD set to AV1 and the red white and yelow plugs attached to the rear of the DVD player ! In settings I have the surround sound set to sterio and it does not give me a cable option for the TV in surround sound settings only SPFID, Component 1,Conponent 2 ,HDMI option which I have a 6ft cable for however my settop box a motarola digitial does not have and input or output plug for .Can anyone point me in the correct direction to get true HDTV and 5.1 surround sound on this otherwise very nice 50" Plasma TV by Vizio modle JV50P HDTV 10A !
Thank You Very Much
