new tv install/set up

new tv install/set up

All my tv's have been Sony but I am about to purchase a Vizio. How complicated will it be for a non technical person to set this up for viewing? I assume it's more than just connecting the cables and turning it on.

Re: new tv install/set up


nope, it IS as easy as pluging it in & turning it on, pluging in the tv cable,  . . . (it = TheTv).


once tv is connected and turned on, use the remote that comes with the tv to select the correct "source", (tv input plug), that you connected cable to;  ie:  HDMI1, HDMI2, DVI, rf cable, etc.


then use the Cable Tv Box's remote to select channels.

(you might have to continue to use use the TV's remote to adjust volume)
