    You might take a look here, Vizio Comparison I don't know what size you are looking for but be careful. You might want to make sure you get one that has a 1366x768 native resolution. That is your 720p. If you buy the 852x480 your TV will scale the HD picture more and you will notice that you don't get as good of a picture.

    Thanks for the link - and yes, it has 1366x768 native. I think that it could be an excellent choice for the bedroom. I WAS thinking 42", but that may be too big for the room. My only concern is that buying now may cost me more over waiting for the holiday sales period, but I don't want to wait (SO wants to donate the old set to Katrina relief).

    Oh well - I've told enough people not to wait when they ask the same question about computers, so I guess I'll take the plunge. Can't get there til Friday though, so I hope I can still get one.

    Have you tried LG? Before I got an OFA remote I think I used LG...

    Tivo code 0128 matches OFA Tv code 0178, which is used by LG.

    Anyone else running a receiver off their peanut with a vizio tv?

    I was able to control all my components (receiver, tv, tivo) with the remote for my SAT-T60 beautifully. I've recently upgraded to an HR10-250 and a Vizio P50HDM. However, I can only get either volume or power control to work on my receiver along with the TV, not both like before. The manual specifies how to do this (and I was able to get my old Sony TV to work before I swapped it out). Any suggestions?

    Using code 0128 for the Vizio (Hold down Power and DIRECTV button)
    then enter code 1025 for the Receiver (again hold down Power and DIRECTV)
    I can turn on both components, but volume does not work.

    I can't remember exactly, but I think if I reverse the above steps, I can use volume control on the receiver, but it won't shut on/off (TV works the same).

    I'd really like to still use the peanut as a backup, and it really SHOULD work like this. I'll eventually be re-tasking my VL900, but was hoping for a stopgap.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    you need to do 3 steps,

    1. press and hold DTV & Tv power, enter code 128
    2. press and hold DTV & MUTE, enter code 1025
    3. press and hold DTV & TV Power, enter code 1025 again

    Appreciate it -- I will try that when I get home tonight.

    Just so I can retain my sanity, that is NOT what the manual states, right? It claims this is a 2 step process, not 3.

    Again, thanks!

    You may want to look at Westinghouse LCDs too. I have a 32" in my bedroom which looks very good. They are 1366X768, BYW, and the prices are competitive. Best Buy carries them.

    I just purchased a vizio 32inch ($599.99 Costco) and was wondering if I can get the vizio universal remote ("Bora", I think) to handle more of my Tivo functions. I can get the basics to work, turning unit on and off, but how do I program the vizio remote to get to my now playing list?

    Thanks

    In the dvr device, with remote pointed towards the dvr, tap Setup and enter 00166 or 166.

    Hi! I have 42" Vizio plasma TV and cannot get TiVo remote to work with it. I tried the 0315 code from TiVo. I also tried the other codes posted here: 0128, 0178, 1025, 00166.... nothing. I have regular TiVo box - not the DirecTV one. Anybody have any other codes to suggest? Thanks so much!!
