symptoms, take regular breaks from watching 3D
content.

Television Antenna Connection
Protection
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is to be
connected to the TV, make sure that the antenna or cable system
is electrically grounded to provide some protection against
voltage surges and static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70,
provides information with regard to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of the grounding conductors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the grounding electrode.
Ground Clamp
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the TV during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug
the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits,
or where it could fall into such power lines or circuits. Remember,
the screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to
earth in the building installation.

How to View 3D
How Theater 3D Works
Watching Blu-ray 3D Content
Because our eyes have space between them, when we look
around, we see two slightly different pictures. We never notice,
because we are able to combine these pictures into one threedimensional image.
To view Blu-ray 3D content:
The VIZIO Theater 3D HDTV takes advantage of this phenomenon
to create a stunning 3D image. When displaying 3D content, the
3D HDTV actually displays two separate images at the same
time—one for each eye.
Because Theater 3D glasses only allow each eye to see its
intended image, your brain is able to process the picture in
the same way as any other object you see. The final result is a
stunning, life-like 3D picture.
What You Need to View 3D Content
• VIZIO Theater 3D HDTV
• 3D Blu-ray™ player with a Blu-ray 3D™ disc (sold
separately)
• VIZIO Theater 3D Glasses
• 3D-Ready HDMI cable (sold separately)
2. Ensure the 3D Blu-ray player and your TV are connected with
the 3D-Ready HDMI cable.
3. Turn the 3D Blu-ray player off. Press the Power/Standby
button on the remote to turn the TV on.
4. Press the INPUT button on the remote and select the input to
which the Blu-ray player is connected (HDMI-1, HDMI-2, etc).
To view 3D content, you will need:
• VIZIO Theater 3D HDTV
5. Turn the 3D Blu-ray player on. Insert the Blu-ray 3D disc into
the player.
• 3D Blu-ray player with a Blu-ray 3D disc (sold
separately)
™
1. Ensure you have the following equipment:
™
6. When the disc is loaded, select the Play Movie option in the
disc’s main menu.
• VIZIO Theater 3D Glasses
• 3D-Ready HDMI cable (sold separately)
7. The TV displays, “3D Content detected. Select YES to switch to
3D, NO to display in 2D.” Highlight Yes and press OK.

Getting the Best 3D Picture
Correct 3D Viewing Distance and Angle
For the best 3D viewing experience, VIZIO recommends that you
install the TV with the viewing distance and viewing angle in
mind. When viewing 3D content, it is important that you view the
TV straight-on, or some of the 3D effect may be lost.
In the examples below, all of the viewers are experiencing the
best possible 3D picture quality.
For your TV, VIZIO recommends:
M501d-A2, M551d-A2, & M651d-A2
Viewing Range:
6 - 9 feet
Optimal Distance:
Eye Line
8 feet
Illustrations in this section are not drawn to scale. They
are for instructional purposes only.
Best 3D - TV on Stand
Incorrect 3D Viewing Distance and Angle
In the example below, two of the viewers are sitting too close to
the TV for a good 3D effect. In addition, the child on the floor is
not seeing the best possible picture because he/she is looking
up at the TV.
In this example, the viewers are sitting at a good distance. They
are viewing the TV straight-on, close to the ideal eye line. They will
experience good 3D quality.
The viewers in the example below are not seeing the best 3D
picture.

Best 3D - Tilt Mounted
In this example, the viewers have mounted the TV on a Tilt Mount.
They are at the correct distance and they are viewing the TV

I see “noise” or static on the screen.
• When your TV’s digital capabilities exceed a
digital broadcast signal, the signal is up-converted
(improved) to match your TV’s display capabilities. This
up-converting can sometimes cause irregularities in the
image.
The image quality is not good.
