Hi Sam and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Vizio TV.

Did you receive? Do you require other information
Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

Appreciate the additional information.

Please confirm that the DirecTV receiver only has the yellow + red & white RCA A/V jacks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
it does, but the TV only has red and white
Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

Have you checked the side rear panel?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I video (yellow) jacks
Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

I understand.

I only HDMI ports are available, then the only approach possible would be to make use of an add-on device that would convert that DirecTV receiver's analog A/V outpout into digital HDMI.

Would this be an acceptable workaround?

And would a link to where such a device can beinquired / purchased serve your need please?
