I have also had the misfortune of working with a number of Vizio LCD's. I say misfortune because as the trusted "pro" who is expected to give the client a simple experience via their primary interface, the remote, the truth is that the control options stink. There is no discrete power command available. Ditto with inputs. When it comes to macros, the necessary workarounds are kludgy at best. Is the picture the worst I've seen? No. Is it close? Yes. Is the price right? Yes? Would I buy one? Not a chance...
