I’m seeing a few stories I can link to tonight. My new TV is acting up and the audio keeps cutting in and out. I’m going to have to call Vizio about this. Not happy. I shouldn’t have to keep changing channels or press the “AV” button on the remote for the audio to come back. POS.
Anyway, here are a few links this evening.
