I do not want to pay any more than $5. Is that possible or shall I cancel my question?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

Initially, is the TV directly connected to an antenna or cable feed?

Or is there a cable box or even a satellite receiver?

Or some other device? ...Internet connection?

And is the original bundled Vizio remote available/usable?
