I've been distracted by Facebook for a while, but this seems longer than is appropriate for a wall post. We got a Vizio VW42LFHDTV this spring, and for the most part, it's been a nice TV. My biggest initial complaint was the lack of a button on the remote control to change the aspect ratio. I play PlayStation2 games in Widescreen, but our TiVo recordings should be viewed in a 4:3 aspect ratio. In addition, some shows are letterboxed and pillarboxed, so they should be zoomed. The only way Vizio provided me to switch modes is to fish through the menus, requiring a minimum of 10 button presses with thinking in between.
As it turns out, their remote control standard has a single button to do the same thing, and the TV knows about it. They just chose not to put that button on the remote they provided. Finally, after months of dealing with this issue, I found a relative with a different Vizio TV. Their remote does have an aspect ratio button (labeled "Wide"). We took our universal learning remote over to their house, and now we have an aspect ratio button.
