My internet is disconnected. Without the smart cast app I cannot turn tv speakers on. No sound. It’s a 2016 E series

You don't need internet, you just need a WiFi connection to the TV using a router or even setting up a WiFi hotspot on a device and connect to that. Why can't you use the remote? I have no issues with audio using HDMI on probably the same model.

Sorry this is not an answer, I have the same question. How can they make a tv that requires internet for basic functions?

Newer models have a menu button on the remote from what I can tell online.

I moved today and won’t have internet for a while, and my iPhone hotspot isn’t showing up in the network search. (Also, I know what I’m doing)

I signed up just to mention how terrible the “best solution” is. It’s contradictory at best.

Thanks!
