Beyond horrible


I bought an expensive Vizio TV about 4 months ago. Vizio just pushed an update that made it substantially harder to impossible to cast things to the TV. In order to do so, I have to use this app. This app is essentially unusable. I don't even have words for how bad the navigation and UI are. They took something that was working, removed it, and replaced it with something I did not ask for, is substantially more complicated, and most importantly doesn't work. TV companies should stop trying to be software companies. They are terrible at it. Make a tv that has a nice picture. Let people who can actually write good usable software like Apple and Roku write the apps. It's incredibly frustrating to have a thing that was working stop working because Vizio decided to push an update I didn't ask for or agree to. If you want a concrete example of stupidity, here is one: Vizio let me know I had to order a new remote from them that had navigation buttons on it (left, right, up, down) to use this app. Fine. In order to close the notification that I had to order this remote, I was supposed to press the right arrow button. Which my remote does not have, which was the entire point of he pop up message I was trying to close.

Beyond frustrated


The fact that I have to use this app in order to get to the menu on the tv is ridiculous in the first place. Anything menu related at all has to go through this app since the remote only has vol+/ vol-, Chan+/ chan-, power, input, picture mode, play/pause and mute.... I understand they wanted the remote simplified but Why no menu button? I set my sleep timer every night and using the app wasn’t that bad since I always have my phone.
Then everything just changed!! I go in the app and after a half of a second, it error messages me that I need to update the app before I am able to use it anymore... okay, understandable. It takes me to the App Store.. that tells me there is no update to download and I am current!! I go back to the app, and within a half a second, it error messages me again and takes me back to the App Store!
I can still click things but I have been having to rush to beat the error message in order to set the sleep timer every night. Usually ending up in about 8-9 attempts if I’m lucky before I succeed. I don’t understand, it’s frustrating the crap out of me! I paid a lot of money for a tv I am unable to do simple general tasks with just because they have a broken app.

When something isn’t broken, for the love of God, don’t fix it


I recently bought a brand new Vizio television for my bedroom, as I have a newer (about a year and a few months old) Vizio in my living room that I really like. That one has the Smart TV function where you log in to your apps on the TV. I read how bad the reviews were of SmartCast but I bought this model of new TV anyway because I thought people were exaggerating. Boy, was I wrong. I have had so many problems with this TV, including randomly having to re-setup everything (settings, SmartCast, WiFi, accepting terms, etc) every few times I turn on the television. My final straw was tonight I tried to watch a movie on one of the pre-installed apps (one you don’t have to play on your phone and cast it to the TV). I got about an hour in and I lost my WiFi connection. I restarted my WiFi about 5 times before I gave up as the problem persisted. Just for laughs I decided to go see if it would work on my other tv. It did, and I wasted 2 hours trying to fix my WiFi when it was my stupid TV and stupid SmartCast the whole time. Bottom line, if you’re gonna get a new Vizio, GET ONE WITHOUT SMARTCAST.
