Customer Question

I bought a vizio tv and am trying to connect my dish dvr to the tv without any luck. Do I need a special adapter cable to connect with?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It's brand new. I don't have a model number. It's a 55 inch flat screen.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I haven't tried any trouble shooting. I;ve just been plugging in the 3 plugs in the side of the tv. All I get on the screen is no signal.
JA: The electronics expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: No
