Revised 1/12 - update overnight seems to have repaired the link to my M series TV. Only going with 3 stars for now b/c I don't trust Vizio to not break the link again. I love the app when it works on the tablet that came with my TV. -------- New update around 12/15. Does not work on tablet that came with the TV. TV was less than one year old at 12/15 update. Until then loved it.
I have no idea why I can't seem to connect to my TV. My home network is well configured, and Chromecasts, etc all work without effort. Nonetheless, even after this app claimed to have successfully connected to the TV, it told me seconds later that it couldn't find it! Grrrr....
Works as advertised! Just took a bit of getting use to. When you setting up make sure to use the vol+ and vol- on the soundbar when you get to that part of the setup, do not use the remote!The casting only works for sound. 06/27/2017 Well it was working and now it stopped. Can't get this app to be consistent! And the fact that the remote has no LED just makes this worst! Horrible. Smh... 01/10/2018 After the most current update, the app no longer works! Every update gets worst! Just terrible. Smh...
App has an incredible difficult time connecting to the TV. App takes nearly an hour to connect to the tv, even when you set up is Bluetooth and connect it to your wireless networks. Don't buy a Vizio smart cast products. Especially when Roku TV's exist(source have a TCL Roku TV and this Vizio smart cast. I will not make the mistake of ever buying this Vizio trash again.)
Half the time it just doesn't work. You hit the power button on the app and it just cycles for 20 seconds and nothing happens. Or it will tell You your power mode isn't compatible with the app will have to do this 3-5 times before the TV will turn on (Never changing the power mode btw). Controlling the volume has a terrible lag so you hit the button and a few seconds pass before anything happens. The app sucks at performing it's primary function. This is using the newest model driod btw.
Was it that hard for you to just add a settings button to the remote to change the TV'S settings? I HATE this app because it doesn't stay linked to my tv. It's pretty sad that you force everyone to have to use an app to change tv settings so you can track what we do on it. Thank goodness for Mac address filtering. Won't buy from again.
