The Vizio Sound Bar is an exciting product that has made its way into many homes in its various different forms.
There are over 16 different Vizio Sound Bars out there and each one offers lots of different important features for such an affordable price compared to their competitors.
One such feature is the Eco Mode feature found on many different variants of the Vizio Sound Bar – but what is it and why should you try it out?
If you have been playing around with your own Vizio Sound Bar and have come across this mode, then check out here what it is and how you can use it to your advantage.
So, let’s dive in and check out the Eco Mode on Vizio Sound Bars!
What Is Eco Mode?
Eco Mode is a mode found on the Vizio Sound Bar that kicks in whenever you want to turn your Sound Bar into standby mode.
Instead of switching your Sound Bar off, it will instead keep it in an inactive state and when you switch it back on, the audio will start off just where you left off.
Think of it as when you switch your computer into sleep mode.
Your computer will use less power while it is left idle but still pick up just where you left it when you switch it back on.
The Eco Mode on a Vizio Sound Bar does the same thing except with your audio.
Why You Should Use Eco Mode
So, Eco Mode is just like putting your computer to sleep or your TV on standby – but what are the advantages of using this mode?
Why should you bother activating it on your menu?
Well, there are a lot of ways Eco Mode can benefit you otherwise Vizio would not have included this feature in their Sound Bars.
So, here are some reasons why you should seriously consider enabling Eco Mode on your Vizio Sound Bar.
The first is that Eco Mode saves power – hence why it was named ‘Eco’ Mode instead of something like ‘Standby’.
By allowing your Vizio Sound Bar to reduce its power consumption while it is left idle, it means that it uses way less energy than if just left on pause.
This in turn saves on battery usage, lowers your energy bills and also does your bit towards helping the environment.
This is probably the biggest reason why a lot of people switch on their Vizio Sound Bar’s Eco Mode.
It saves on energy and in the long run, can save you a lot of money – and who would turn down that option?
Another great way Eco Mode can help you out is that it easily allows you to pick up on your media right where you left off.
Just how sleep mode for a computer is great because it allows you to keep certain pages and windows open on your computer even when it is not in use, Eco Mode on your Vizio Sound Bar allows you to pick up listening to your favorite media right where you stopped.
This means you won’t have to worry about searching or remembering where you stopped last time you used your Sound Bar – just kick it back up and get back to enjoying your Sound Bar.
Even if you end up experiencing technical problems that interrupt your experience, Eco Mode will help you be able to save where you are and then return once the issue is fixed.
So, whether the interruption is surprise guests or an internet outage, using Eco Mode means that you don’t have to worry about losing your place.
Plus, it’s super easy to use Eco Mode. Your Vizio TV remote will have buttons that apply to the Vizio Sound Bar.
So, with just a press of a button, you can enable Eco Mode and use the remote to switch it on and out of its rest.
How To Switch On Eco Mode On Vizio Sound Bar
So, you have decided to switch on the Eco Mode on your Vizio Sound Bar – but how exactly do you do it?
Well, it’s super easy. Just grab your Vizio TV remote and head over to the settings menu.
There, you should be able to scroll over to the option ‘Eco Mode’. Click ‘Enable’ and your whole Vizio TV should switch into Eco Mode.
Unfortunately, there is no way to enable Eco Mode for your Vizio TV or Sound Bar alone.
Both need to be enabled in Eco Mode for it to work, otherwise it will be disabled and not work for either. Luckily,
Eco Mode has all of the above advantages for your Vizio TV as well so there is really no downside to using this mode!
And that’s everything you need to know about Eco Mode on the Vizio Sound Bar!
It’s not a very complicated mode to understand and it’s super easy to enable and disable through the settings menu on your Vizio TV.
So, go back over the advantages of Eco Mode and think about if you want to try it out yourself.
If you find it too annoying, then you can just switch it back off – no problem!
