Many people are frustrated with how they have to use their remote to watch TV. It’s uncomfortable, and it can be difficult to keep up with all thebranches of the TV network. Vizio have solved this problem by providing a direct connection to wifi, so you can watch your TV assallways without having to use your remote.

Why? Because with Vizio Tv, you can watch your TV shows and movies on the same screen as your family and friends. You don’t have to leftessuch a situation, and you don’t have to worry about received feedback about how your viewing is performing. On vizio Tv, we have a “talk to” feature that allows you to talk to other customers, not just members of your family. This way, you can enjoy your TV shows and movies while still having access to the rest of your family and friends.

Connect Vizio TV to WiFi without Remote 

To begin, turn on your television and then reset it by simultaneously pushing the VOLUME DOWN and INPUT buttons on your television for 5 seconds. When asked, press and hold the INPUT button for a total of ten seconds. Afterwards, connect your keyboard to your computer’s USB port and continue the setup procedure with your keyboard.

Connect a USB keyboard to your Vizio TV

The first step is to do a factory reset on your Vizio television set. Because you don’t have a remote control, you’ll have to make do with the buttons on your television.

Depending on your television type, these buttons will either be on the right or left side of the screen, or they will be immediately underneath the screen.

Assuming your television is turned on, press and hold both the VOLUME DOWN button and the INPUT button simultaneously for about 5 seconds.

An instruction prompt will show on the screen eventually, directing you to press the INPUT button for a total of ten seconds.

After the ten seconds have elapsed, your television should begin to reset.

Now that your Vizio TV has been reset, you may proceed to connect your USB keyboard to the back of the television. It does not matter whether the keyboard is connected or wireless; both will function properly.

Complete the configuration by pressing the keys on your keyboard! When you reach the network configuration page, just enter the name and password of your WiFi network and you should be ready to go.

Connect an ethernet cable to your router and Vizio TV

If you don’t have a USB keyboard, maybe you have an ethernet cable?

Many Vizio televisions include ethernet connectors on the back of the unit. Go ahead and see whether yours does as well. If this is the case, continue reading!

Using an ethernet cable, you may connect your Vizio TV to the internet. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Connect one end of the ethernet cable to an accessible ethernet port on your Vizio TV, and the other end to a power supply.
  • Using the other end of the ethernet wire, connect it straight to your router’s input port.
  • It is possible to switch the TV off and on again at this point by pressing the POWER button on the back of the television set. Your television should now be able to recognise the wired connection.
  • The internet connection should be established at this point.

The ease with which you may connect this method is largely dependent on how near your router is to your TV. A fairly lengthy ethernet connection will be required otherwise, and the investment may not be worth it.
