Lack of any analog outputs
My 47" Vizio only has the optical output, all other connections are input only. Amazon does have a digital/optical decoder to analog audio decoder. You need a short optical cable, Amazon has suggested options and accessories. Right close to $30. not too bad. Like you, I didn't think before I thought about it and found zero units with anything other than an optical output. I guess they intend to leave the analog worl behind.
