Customer Question
I would like to...

I would like to show a local TV channel that Dish doesn't carry on our Smart TV. Can I stream from a laptop to the TV?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your smart tv?

Let me get that info.

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

Yes

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

Where do I look for the model and make?
