Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to download Sling tv app. The yahoo connected tv store says, "to turn off/on my tv and press the Apps button" in order to complete a software update. Nothing on my remote is an "Apps button." what do I press?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of your television? And what have you tried as far as getting this connected goes?

Vizio E550i-AO

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Everything else works - Netflix...amazon...all other apps - I just cannot get to a place that allows me to download a new app that was not already pre-installed.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Never tried it before - first time to try to download an app not already pre-loaded
