Usually I don't care about when woot stuff gets here, but I am really looking forward to upgrade the 27inch tube in the bedroom. I'm hoping mine is on the way too, if not, for $5 shipping it is hard to complain.

Tomorrow will be Saturday and not a business day, will it update then?

Still haven't received it.

You have 10,000 options.
Option 1) Try the default Vizio password '0000'
Options 2 thru 10,000... start at '0001' and proceed to '9999'.

It appears Vizio does not reset the Parental Password when reseting the main memory.

From the Vizio manual for this TV:
---------------------------------------
Reset TV Settings
Return all Picture and Audio settings to factory default. A screen will come
up to confirm your selection or to cancel it. Press Left or Right Navigation
buttons to make the selection, and then press OK to accept it.
Note: This does NOT reset the Parental Control Password.
Clear Memory (Factory Default)
Use this function to reset the TV to the default factory settings. The screen
will display a message to confirm that you want to reset the values to
factory settings. Press ◄ or ► to make the selection, and then press OK to
accept it.
Note: This does NOT reset the Parental Control Password.

------------------------------------------
For Rivkad's sake, I hope the Vizio manual is wrong.

I received all email notifications and the tracking on Fed Ex was great. I live in a suburb of Philadelphia and mine was delivered this morning. I work close to home and was able to run home at lunch and bring it inside. It was left on the front stoop in an inconspicuous brown box that does not scream "TV Inside" and/or "steal me". Didn't have time to hook it up yet, but looking forward to doing so this evening.

Just recieved mine. Base neck was not installed and screw pack for it has the wrong screws. Have to go to hardware store to get proper length screws. Does anyone know the proper length before i buy the wrong ones

Got ours today, Fedex delivered it with a huge hole in the box and a lovely shattered screen. :/

Got mine today as well, sorry to hear a few are having issues.
I'm thrilled with mine(knock on wood).
My only HD source atm, is OTA.
So vast majority of viewing for a short while will SD.
But even then, the 'black barred' SD viewing area is bigger than the viewing area of my old 27" tube tv.

Just in case someone else needs it, the Vizio remote code for Dish Network's remote models 6.3(UHF Pro) and the 5.0(IR) that worked for me was '627'.

As for the lighted Vizio logo, I can't see it bothering me.

No replacement for us. Woot is out and it could take weeks for a refund. Real nice Woot.

Received mine yesterday evening, Metro Atlanta, Ga.
Absolutely love it! No problems whatsoever aside from not being able to program my dang DirecTv remote...tried all the codes I could find and still cant get it to work.

alohaman44.......As far as the base goes, there is only one screw and it is in the middle. Its a small screw with a swivel "D ring" attached you simply unscrew it, put the base in then screw the single screw in place. I hope this reaches you in time before you purchase 6 screws and start to tear something up.

I got mine last week. does anyone else have an annoying buzzing sound coming from the speakers? It is less noticeable when there is sound coming from what I'm watching, but if there is like a moment between dialogue and no background music...BUZZZZZ it is pretty annoying.

I do have one issue.
It reeks of plastic'y or electronic type of odor.
Very strong.
Anybody else notice it?

I have that intermittently at times. Mine also doesn't have consistent volume - sometimes it gets so quiet, then I turn the volume up and minutes later the volume is way too loud. Any suggestions? I've never had any problems with refurb products from Woot thus far, including the Vizio 26" TV I purchased last year.

I have the buzzing noise as well, when the volume is very low. Aside from that, I'm thrilled with this TV. The picture is beautiful and is much better than the 32" we had.

Hubby unpacked and set up the Vizio today. It is fabulous. No problems except for what to do with the huge tube it replaced. The SD picture is great. Hubby hooked up a surround sound system. I think this has a better picture than the 32" Vizio we got from Woot a couple of years ago.

I have the buzzing issue. It's not too bad, I can definitely live with it.

A tip for those of you who want to use the RGB (VGA) input:

The remote control doesn't have a dedicated button for the RGB input (VGA). But if you or someone you know has a Harmony remote, there is one available as an additional button!

This requires you to either use a learning remote, or a Harmony remote. But you can have a dedicated button to switch to the VGA input.

I have my $20 Sony learning remote setup to have TV, VGA, and Component as dedicated buttons.
