Nowadays, each and every digital and electronic device comes with remote control for easy user experience. With the help of remote control devices, we can access them from a sufficient distance. Smart tvs are the best examples to understand the advantage of remote control.

But the problem is that sometimes we need to power ON and control TV’s menu options without a remote. For this purpose, most smart TVs have their own Smartphone application to operate them wirelessly. Similarly, we can also turn ON any new and old vizio smart tv without remote control device. So, here we are going to share two different working methods to operate Vizio smart TV without a remote.

Recently, I was writing an article about “how to add Xfinity App For Vizio Smart tv”. At the same time, we found that many users want to know the trick to use Vizio tv without remote. But most of them are interested in “Turn On Vizio Tv without remote”, “vizio tv menu without remote” and “how to change input on vizio tv without remote” etc.

After surfing on different forums, we realized that many users really don’t know how to use Vizio TV without a remote control device.
