You need a HDMI switch.

Does the Vizio TV support component (5 colors connection), if so purchase a component cable to place between TV and Uverse receiver. Then change TV input depending on what you desire to watch, or course will be most likely using multiple remotes unless purchase a Harmony or similar to control all equipment.

No, the U-verse connects to the TV with the HDMI. The blurray will be connected to the TV with the component cable (5 colors) nothing from the uverse needs to be connected to the bluray.

If the uverse has component outputs use them to connect to the TV, then the HDMI from the bluray to the TV. If the uverse doesn't have component outputs then the only option is the HDMI switch.

If you only have one HDMI, run the HDMI from the DVD player to the HDMI connection on the TV.
Run component (R/G/B) from the Uverse box to the TV. This is acceptable for HD viewing.
You'll use your TV remote to switch between HDMI to Component depending on what you want to watch (DVD or TV). It will probably be called "Input" on your remote.
HDMI --> DVD
Component --> Uverse

I use an HDMI switch that has 4 HDMI ports and you plug the output on the tv and connect other devices to the switch it works fine. I have a simple switch and have to change the input on the switch. The do make the more expensive switches that change automacticlly depending on the switch you choose. Just google HDMI switches and choose the one you want.
