I keep getting an error message that says my phone and TV are not on the same WiFi?

Keep getting an error message that says my phone and TV are not on the same WiFi. I didn't even know I had more than one WiFi in my house??? How do I find out what the two WiFi's are and get them on the same one?

There are a couple possibilities here concerning the smartphone. You may be connecting to another WiFi signal of a neighbor that you once visited and logged into their network while you were there. Another possibility is that someone in your house has a hotspot turned on from their mobile phone that you once logged into. The other more remote possibility is that you have 2 different signals coming from your router, one being the normal and the other coming from the higher 5.8 frequency. Remember that your smartphone is designed to connect to the strongest known network signal.

Smart TV functionality question. Controlling a smart TV remotely?

I'm trying to find out if there is a TV that I could get for my elderly mother that I could control remotely to do Skype chats over the TV with her. We have family and friends in a dozen different states that want to be able to do Skype chats with my Mom. My mom is impaired and can not manage a DVR let alone a smart TV. In order to do Skype chats with her we would have to be able to control her TV remotely. Does this technology exist?
