It's easy to hook up if you have the right cables that go on your tv. If your tv takes RCA cables then you can use it with the RCA cables in the box. Other tv's will require purchasing an extra Optical Cable, or a 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable. Then, the power cord plugs into the wall and the Sound Bar. Once hooked up, point the remote towards the right speaker on the bar (where the LED lights are inside) and press the Input button on the remote until there is sound out of the Vizio Sound Bar.

Very easy to connect. The cable you need is in the box. Just plug red to red and white to white on the back of the bar, and connect the same way to the "audio out" on the back of the TV.

For some reason the plastic about the receiver is not cut out well. I took the cover off the speaker and trimmed the plastic under the speaker cloth a little. This helped some and made the remote usable.

I eventually went to a universal remote and that helped more.

I planned on going to a universal anyway so that was not a big deal but you would think they would have test the design before building the darn things!

If remote doesn't work at all, check polarity of battery. Maybe need a new battery. If it only works sometimes, this is because of limited range from the device itself.

This will work work on ANY TV;
LCD,Plasma,CRT any TV so long as you have either a set of RCA line outs or S/PDIF digital out.
Easiest setup is using the supplied cable from the fix/var line out to the speaker input.
Or use the digital input but you need to buy the cable which is about $10 online

no, u don't need a seperate amp/receiver. the soundar has a built-in amplifier. 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.)

You don't need a receiver to hook this to your tv. It has 2 RCA plugs and an optical input. But I think you have to set your tv or dvd player to PCM if you want to listen through the optical output.

I have the 47" razor vizio on a tv stand that has the top to it where you can put stuff up there for looks but I have a decent gap from the stand to my tv so I'm thinking of mounting it to the stand so it just hangs above. Thats what I'm doing with mine. I just bought my vizio sound bar and I'm impressed with it.

We put it right in front of our flat screen. Our tv is the exact length as the sound bar. We did put the tv up on a couple books so it wouldn't block the remote, but it looks good there.

The only included audio cable was composite (red/white) cable with one end being a right angle style plug which would allow the sound bar to be wall mounted, otherwise the cord would stick out of the back too far.

It does, but I just hung it on my wall. The sound bar didn't look right next to the tv. I guess because the soundbar is long. But it does come with stands, and you can reverse them to hang it on y our wall.

Yes it does. When operating the soundbar remote - it's important to know that you need to press the "power" button on the soundbar remote TWICE in order for the soundbar to work.

We turn off our television with our Direct TV remote. We leave the soundbar "on" after we turn off the TV.

When we turn the TV on with our Direct TV remote, we then have to press the "power" button on the soundbar remote ONE TIME.

The key is to look at the lights on the right side of the sound bar. When there are 7 or so white lights lit up on the sound bar - I think that means the sound bar is TURNED ON. When you press the power on the soundbar remote ANOTHER TIME - the 7 or so white lights should be replaced with 3 or so white lights and maybe 2 blue lights - that indicates that the sound is working on the soundbar.

Hope this helps.
