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.

No, RCA cables come with unit. Also has optical input, with I would suggest you use because sound will be better, and less cables to play with. (1 vs. 2 with the RCA). Optical cable not included and about $18 at Radio Shack.

It comes with the standard red and white RCA cable, but don't use that. I bought an optical digital TOSLINK cable locally for $7 to connect my old LG 37" HDTV. You should have an optical audio output on your TV. That is the best quality connection.

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.

answer 3
No, as long as you do not put the sound bar ontop of your CRT tv but at the base, as intended. It will NOT affect a lcd, led, or plasma tv at all. It is a class b FCC certified unit so it may cause interference but only on nearby antennaes (rabbit ears).
answered 5 years, 1 month ago

answer 4
For a magnet to interfere with the image on a TV, it has to be a very strong magnet and/or be very close to the TV. The problem is not as severe with a TV that is LCD as it was with a CRT/tube-type TV. Those older TVs have a cathode in the rear that sends a beam of electrons toward the front of the TV - the inside of the picture tube. A magnetic field will cause a deflection of the electron beams. On a color TV, that makes for an interesting pattern. However, getting a magnet too close to the TV for too long will cause that pattern to remain on the screen because the screen is magnetized (in simple terms). It can be degaussed by a repair shop, though.

When I had an older tube-type TV with a small poor-sounding speaker, I installed a larger, better speaker inside the cabinet. I also installed some sheet metal around it to block the magnet's effect on the tube.

If the sound bar remains six inches away from the TV, it should cause no interference with the image.

you should not put this particular sound bar right on your tv.this model does not have the magnetic shielding that some other sound bars offer.walmart has another model available for like 99.00 dollars that i was looking at.which does have that feature.but with the vizio.you would want to keep it at least six to egiht inches from your tv.

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.

TSHD is TruSurroundHD and that is the setting I use, but try each one to see which you like best. TVOL means TruVolume. I didn't like it as well as TSHD. I don't see any reason to use both at the same time.

Yes, both settings can be on at the same time. TVOL seems to add only more volume and the TSHD seems to add a surround type sound. I have them both on. Just try either, both or none of the settings to see which one you like.

answer 6
These two functions do two different things. the TVOL (TruVolume) will give you a balanced even sound when switching between commercial and program as many commercials have a higher volume. the TSHD (TruSurround HD) will give you a more high definition surround sound feel with the sound bar. So you can have both on at the same time to perform their functions simultaneously.
