Anyone who tried this get any kind of order conformation? I put in all the info, hit submit and it went to a page that had a "this content can't be displayed" message. Plus I didn't receive any type of email from them so I'm not sure if it went thru or not.

I used IE to submit the info so I might try it again later on a different browser and see what happens.

Thanks for the reply. I tried it with Chrome and got it to work.

Did you try inputting the serial number instead of the code they give you?

I tried using the code and got the "your tv doesn't qualify...." message, so then I tried the serial number and it said my tv did qualify.

I used the serial number; I wasn't sure what 4 digit number they wanted. No luck.

I already received my updated remote for my P65-C1. My only knock on the tv was the stupid tablet, but now everything works with the remote just like a normal tv. Even the apps like Netflix etc work seamlessly now.

Score! Can't wait to get mine. I absolutely love everything about my Vizio, aside from the tablet of course. Next step: figuring how to stream Amazon Prime. Yes, I'm new to "cutting the cable."

Yeah I can't wait either. Thought the tablet remote idea would be cool but it turned out to be a pain. Oh well guess I got a tablet to do what I want with now out of the deal.


You'll have no problem figuring out how to stream Prime. If I remember correctly you should just have to launch the Prime app and then sign in with your Prime account info. From there it should just be finding what you want to watch.

My e43u 4k model updated and prompted me to send away for the remote. Received it a couple days ago, is an actual smart TV now. Not just a home theater display anymore. Cool beans!
