Customer Question
I have an early HD...
I have an early HD TV with no model number or serial number on it - can you help determine the model number so I can set up my harmony remote? It is 42" and says "TRUE MOTION", "240Hz", and "HIGH FRAME RATE" on a silver panel at the bottom under the Vizio logo. Thanks!

Hello,

It is not possible to work out the model number from your descriptions.

Is there a model number or any other information on the rear of the TV?

If you can get the part number of the main board inside the TV I can give you the model number.

No there are no model numbers on the set at all, as this was an early model used to demo blu-ray devices at CES and thus was not purchased via normal retail channels.I was able to do a google search for images of vizio tv models and locate a picture of the TV that way and get the model number from there. So I'm all set and there's no need for you to keep looking... thanks though.
