Question

Key board input to TV

by kj4vikes / January 31, 2012 1:10 AM PST

I have a Visio smart TV with internet apps. I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to use a key board to input info to the TV and not have to use the TV remote to select characters off the screen. This on screen method is slow and cumbersome.
Thank you
Ken

But some are reporting success with smart phones and apps. If you want to ask others to locate such, be sure to supply that detail as well as share what you found so far.

Sorry about the brand name misspell. It is Vizio. Fat fingers I guess.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
