Live video stream from our church, I get it on a computer fine, but not on tv
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 6 months ago

Thank you. You would need a device like a Chrome Cast to connect to the TV as the TV does not have the ability to stream wirelessly from a computer directly. Chrome Cast can however, and you can mirror what you have on your computer on the TV. I can pull up a link to that device if you'd like.

You can purchase the Chromecast for $35 at the link below:

If you need something sooner than that, then your only choice is to physically connect the computer to the Vizio using an HDMI cable and then change the settings on the computer to "mirror display".

What's the model number off the back of the TV?

I'm sorry that was for another question. What I meant to ask was do you need further assistance with this?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 6 months ago

I was just following up to see if you needed further help? The site shows that since the question is open that you are still looking for help. Or, if you received the information you were looking for-could you please kindly rate my service POSITIVELY (by clicking a 3-5 star rating by scrolling to the top of the page)? Thanks in advance.
