Hi, recently purchased a Vizio E552VLE LCD tv. This is a 1080p 55" widescreen. Any suggestions as to what profile to use for this? It supports DNLA over my home network. Some of the mp4 files I have done for my Xoom play on the tv fine, but others have error messages that say "Audio codec not supported and Video codec not supported" even though they are all mp4 files.
Unfortunately, the last time I looked for Vizio specs (last week) I couldn't find anything regarding supported formats.
If some Xoom files work, and some don't, it could be either that the TV is picky on screen resolution or file-size. Some devices don't like files larger than 2GB in size, so that would be the first thing to check.
If you look at the properties of a working one and a non-working one, can you check the difference between the 2?
If you can find specifications as to what is supported by the TV, maybe in the physical manual or something (I looked online for it but it didn't say anything) I should be able to tell what settings to use.
I'll have to do some comparing when I get time. I tried Vizio chat several days ago, and one of them didn't know it was DNLA compatible. All my literature doesn't evern mention it; I got an email from Tech support that wasn't much help either. I've noticed that the set doesn't discriminate, AVI, MP4, it will read some but not the next one. All my files are right at 1gb, so that probably isn't the cause. I'll keep on trying
Likely "Generic > Generic DIVX" will work, but MP4 results in better quality. Did you look at the resolution difference between working/non-working?

The stock settings for "AVI XVID AC3" works perfectly. I did a second rip using the same settings, except to change the audio mode to 5.1 instead of 2 channael stereo and again it worked. The sound is coming through the TV speakers so I don't know if the 5.1 sound really works until I pipe it through my receiver. Since I'm still working on the setup, it'll be a few more days before I can try it, but right now it looks good

please keep me informed as to how you are getting along.
I have gotten a few questions regarding Vizio, all without luck due to a lack of knowing what it actually supports.
I've tried mp4 and some of my old rips work and some don't. I didn't want to go through each one checking the properties, so I just started out fresh. Both of my movies are working and have shown no artifacts, the files are 1.7 gb in size, but don't mind cause I have plenty of storage space right now. Vizio is not much in help, they just told me that mp4 would work.
