    Proud new owner of a gigantic Vizio smartcast TV with tablet remote. It requires an external HD receiver to watch the network channels. Browsing amazon and the top sellers don't have solid 4 star reviews. Any advice would be appreciated :thumbup2:

    Is a TV or just a monitor? Why would a TV need a receiver?

    Nope, I need an HD tuner/receiver. That will allow me to use the HD antenna

    The top seller on Amazon is 3.5 stars for just $30. Cheap investment I guess

    Yeah, I dunno anything needing an HD receiver. I have a 4K 55 inch Samsung. All you have to do is connect it to your wireless network and you're good.

    Why does it need the receiver anyway? Does it convert HD signal?

    Are you not getting cable? Just hook up cable or get something like Playstation Vue.

    It's the newest Vizio model, doesn't have the channel component. It's HDMI or AirPlay from the tablet, no tv component option. Brand new concept
