Vizio Home Theater Soundbar found in many Cedar Creeks

My early 2014 Cedar Creek 34 RLSA came with one of these sound bars which is a piece of junk. When I can figure out how to get sound through it from the television I can't adjust the volume but just a small amount using the Vizio remote. If I mute it, it only stays muted for 3 seconds then comes back on. Several times while watching television the sound will just go off. The only way to get the sound back is turn the Vizio remote off the back on.
I love my Cedar Creek EXCEPT for this sound system, if you can even call it that.
What a POS they chose to put in a great 5 th., wheel.
Anyone else had problems with their Vizio sound bar? What did you do? It's a 300 mile round trip back to my dealer for warranty repair.

We will be replacing ours this year... It just isn't worth dealing with as you stated it is a POS.

We can't get the sound bar to work with the tv- only works with the radio and dvd player. Did you do anything special to get tv sound through the bar? We agree it's worthless.

It just has the basic red and white component cables going into the audio inputs on the television. Then, I think, you have to turn the television speakers off in the television settings.

I've found if all the wires are hooked correctly it works ok. Mine weren't.

Had to use the TV Manual and an iPhone to take pictures of the cable hook up in the back of the TV - found they were hooked up wrong. Once that was fixed need to go into the setup and turn off the TV Speakers.

I agree that the sound bar and car radio are crap. I am replacing mine with a Pioneer receiver and speakers + Yamaha subwoofer this coming weekend. I'll document the process and post it here for those interested.

Cheers,

Murray

Vizio

Mine was hooked up properly once I read the instructions it worked. Still it has poor sound quality. I had replaced my TV when I first bought my 36ckts with a really good Samsung and I have just be listening with the speakers from that. I have been thinking about a new sound bar but the one I want is Bose and I keep telling myself not to spend that much.
