Is this tv wii compatable?

answer 1
Be careful on this - I go the E422VLE when I thought I was getting the E422VL. The VLE does not have the separate yellow/red/white jacks shown in the picture for the VL. You are supposed to plug it into the component jacks - so yellow cable goes into the green jack.

The wii video appears to have a lag in the that is very slight, but it means you can't effectively play games. The delay in video means that the jumps and shots happen an instant too late.

Virtually all Hi-Def TV's, including this one, has a composite input (the RCA jacks), and will work fine. You may also want to consider getting a Blu-ray player. You'll get a better picture and it will play all your old DVD's as well as any Blu-ray you purchase.

YES IT DOES! BIG MISTAKE ON WALMART FOR NOT CORRECTLY SPECIFYING THE SPEC'S THIS WAS VIZIO'S REPLY WHEN I ASKED THEM:
These models have the same specifications. The difference is that the E442VLE supports DLNA where the E442VL does not.

Yes, you can hook it up to a HD Antenna.
Make sure you have good reception.
The TV is HD.
If you program it, from the menu and you will be pleasantly surprised you get channel without an antenna, and if you have good reception, wow you'll get them.
An antenna will enhance the power and of course you'll get more channels.
