My Vizio smart TV does not have all the widgets to download in the store
In this link: http://connectedtv.yahoo.com/tvapps/ it has listed of all widgets that are available. But a lot of them I can not find in the Yahoo store on my Vizio smart TV. One widget that I can not download is TV Guide. In the link it is listed that TV Guide is one of the widget available for download but i can not find it in the Yahoo TV store on the Vizio TV.
I was pleased to hear that many apps would be coming out after we bought our vizio smart tv last year. very disappointing how few there stll are. also, extremely disappointing that users do not have the ability to enter a web address but can only access content through whatever apps yahoo and vizio see fit to offer. its a load of horse dookie. if you are thinking it sounds like a good deal, its not. for some reason going through the apps makes the web based content stream slower than on my other internet devices. the tv is good, i don't blame vizio except for partnering with yahoo, who apparently has no clue on where they're going with this.
I recently purchased a Vizio E7011A3 and love the picture, sound, etc, but this app BS really aggravates me. Netflix works but ALL Yahoo apps constantly say "loading" and don't work. I can live without apps but why market them when after years they are vaporware? Bad for Vizio and bad for Yahoo.
Sorry to hear that you are having issues with Yahoo Apps loading. There might have been an issue with the initialization of our platform. Would you be able to perform a TV reset to see if that can solve this issue? In order to do so please go to the Vizio menu (key on remote), select System / Reset & Admin / Reset to Factory Defaults. If the TV requires you to enter a code it will be 0000.
I agree with the others on this forum that the Yahoo Apps are grossly lacking compared to other SmartTV app stores. We have a Roku and it is better to just hook it up and use it than being frustrated with 1) the performance of the Yahoo Apps as Hulu constantly jumps and skips and 2) the fact that the bulk of the apps are useless Yahoo! apps like Yahoo! PersonalFInance or Yahoo! Sports. Also the fact that about 60 of the 123 apps are "local" news stations porting their mobile app for news (almost as useless as the stock Yahoo! apps).
TV = Freaking awesome picture and sound
Apps = Almost as feeble an attempt as Windows Vista was
I had a problem with apps not loading or allowing me to select them from the menu. Additionally, I was getting a not connected popup when I tried to use some of the apps in the lower menu.
I fixed this by checking the ip address of the DNS server on my computer, and manually entering it into the internet menu on the E320I. This immediately fixed the problem, started an update of 24 items, and allowed me to access the appstore menu.
I just purchased a Vizio smart tv, hoping I could get rid of my Roku box, thus eliminating some cords. Unfortunately, I cannot. While I am happy Netflix and Hulu are there (although it is the older version of Hulu, not sure why??), I am really missing my PlayOn I had installed on my Roku. Any chance it can be accessible in the near future? If I could have that or any of the other apps I had previously then this purchase would have really seemed worth it. Otherwise, I am going back to my old setup. :(
Is there a way to download more apps on a Vizio smart TV from the "Yahoo Connected TV Store" App? All I see in this app is information about my Yahoo account, profile, etc. I cannot find a way to browse and download additional apps.
How do you get more apps I can't find them. People told me to not buy a computer because of my t.v
but I can't do anything on it. It won't let me search or nothing it says download then IT stays blank.plz help me. Before I take it back.
