  • A. picture outside of picture (PoP) is where the tv takes two inputs n places them side by side on ur tv so u can view them both at the same time. but usually u can only hear one of the inputs audio at a time. very easy to switch which input audio u hear. in the PiP section of the menu there should b something like audio source, in there ull see something like Main and PiP, Main obviously is the input u were on when u activated PoP, and PiP would be ur other input that u PoP(tv,av1,component1,rgb,hdmi)....only thing with this feature is u can't PiP or PoP the same inputs. example would b 2 hdmi, 2 av, 2 components. has to b 2 different inputs. example would b hdmi 1 and tv, hdmi 1 and component or tv and av etc....

  • A. Picture outside of picture I believe is when the big picture "shrinks" enough to leave a black bottom and a small picture comes up on the left side of it.

  • A. I would say picture outside picture is just another way of saying the same thing as picture in picture. When you choose PIP, one of two pictures will be displayed in a smaller frame inside the larger picture on the screen of your TV. But you could describe this as there is a larger picture displayed outside of a framed smaller picture on your TV screen. Semantics.

  • A. Televisions do not have the ability to regulate sound per se. All televisions with so-called sound regulation capabilities use a process known as "sound averaging." A regulating circuit "looks" at the average sound level and attempts to keep all sound at that level. However, levels from programs and commercials will vary greatly. When the average sound level goes up, the regulated sound will go up also. Although not as much as with a non-regulated sound level. This makes it appear to lower the volume level of commercials. Currently, there are slow wheels turning in the government aimed at lowering the levels of commercials. Also, Dolby Labs has created a software program that can be built into TV's that they claim will do the trick for lowering a commercials audio levels. Could see this in TV's this year or maybe next. Here is a link you can follow for back-up on this reply. I have 35 years TV repair experience and have worked on all kinds of auto volume leveling sets.

  • A. YES IT DOES. It's called TruVolume. You need to enable it. It only works for the internal speakers.

I have had this Tv for more than a month now and still impressed! Hvae a good friend who works at a store who sells tv's and home theater set ups. He told me that this tv would be good but not great. Boy was he wrong! Playing Xbox 360 games (Battlefield Bad Company 2, CoD MW2, MLB 2k10) all look great on this TV! No lag j8ust great graphics and great gaming. Watching movies is just awesome on this TV. 2012, Transformers 2, Boondocks Saints 2, etc.. just shined on it. Have HD programming through my cable provider. So normal tv is great to look a and very pleasing to the eye. Just watching anything on this tv is amazing. Comparing this TV to a lot of other displays I saw for a lot more this TV blew a lot of the other more pricey brands away. Been saving up for an LCD TV for a while and this TV is worth every dollar I paid for it. A lot of inputs, a lot of gorgeous ways to watch tv! If you are looking for a bargain priced LCD with High Priced LCD features, check this tv out! I recommend this to everyone!!!!

We love this TV. It was up in no time and needed no adjustments. We mounted it with a tilt wall mount that makes it easy to pull out and plug in connections. Would definitely recommend. With the home theater system that comes with it, we can watch DVD movies, listen to CD's, and also watch clear precise photos. They look great enlarged on the big screen. The theater system also has a USB port that we can attach anything with a USB attachment and show it on the screen. We were able to hide all the wires by running them through a wicker shelf.

Wait to write your review. Our TV only lasted three weeks. The picture quality starts changing colors after the first week and by the end of the second week everyone is blue no matter what you do.

We bought the 55" Vizio tv and we were really impressed by it. It was so eay to set up. The picture and sound quality are execellent. We shopped around and I went online,I even read Consumer Reports Magazine to get the best TV for our money . This tv lives up to everything we could expect.We bought it for 1298.00 and it is well worth it.
