I have the Vizio 701i-A3. It has whats called Yahoo apps. The apps themselves look to me like smartphone apps. I then found this site Yahoo Connected TV. Would love to be able to install XBMC/Kodi on this thing. According to the site, people can create their own apps and post them. Then log into the settings on the TV and install the app to the TV using Yahoo Apps.
I have a Vizio E32-C1 2015 that I picked up a few months ago. The Vizio e-series are a pretty good deal IMHO.
I was trying to turn it on in the dark the other day, and ended up pressing some unknown button combination as I fumbled in the dark.
The result was rather surprising, the TV turned on and revealed a gray screen (from the look of it it was an HTML form) with the title "Opera App Launcher". Below the title was an input field and a submit button. Next to the input field in parentheses was the text "(0-9)".
I was able to move from element on the page from the arrow navigation buttons on the remote.
So I entered the number '5' from my remote, and hit the submit button. After a few seconds the Vizio official website loaded up. I was able to navigate the page and browse, but couldn't find a way to return to the grey screen or enter a URL manually.
So far I've had no luck finding what button combo I entered. From searching the web I've gotten no hits about how to get into the service menu from the e-series, let alone anyone else who has encountered the "Opera App Launcher".
Has anyone else seen anything like this? I'm really eager to get low-level access to my Smart TV.

While there might be a good amount of interest with this. I dont see work being done on it, as theres no central OS each tv would be completely different.
Plus its alot easier to attach a small computer to the tv and go from there
