Unfortunately you can't control the lights from the app unless you're on the same wifi network as the bridge and lights. You can control the lights from the Hue website though, but you must set it up from the same network. When you're near the bridge go to and go through the setup process. I don't know why they don't let you do this through the app. Hopefully they'll add that feature soon.

I have a 55pfl5601 and would like to know what I need or need to do to setup sling tv on the phillips tv

If you already have established a WIFI connection from your TV to your router then download the sling TV app. Go online and go to sling's website, open an account and have the mac address of the TV handy so they can authorise the TV.

Network issues with Samsung Smart TV UN60JU6500FXZA

You mention two separate issues, WiFi and smart hub. As you know Samsung built in manual is the worst idea ever. There is no picture of the complete rear panel connection for example.
If the smart hub is the actual WiFi antenna then if your system doesn't recognize Smart Hub then you have a bad smart hub.
to test smart hub plug something into hub ( DVD HDMI, video game) If your remote has smart hub button press and see what appears. Otherwise select source on remote see if your attached item appears. (That would indicate smart hub does talk to TV)!
Since you can access your network when hard wired your network password is stored.
Once you have verified Smart Hub is functional then work on WiFi.
i will say my Samsung is 3 ft from my router and hard wired for better streaming speed.
I use Bluetooth access to share photos from IPads.
I would leave TV hard wired.

I want to make my phone 4s into the universal remote

This can only be done if your television is a Smart TV and the maker has an app. Your phone does not have an infra red transmitter, so can't be done through air, only via your home wifi network, from phone to hub, hub to television.

Cannot download App's from App Store. Youtube App in particular.

Possible problem with WiFi network or link. Try moving WiFi hub/router closer to TV. Prior to this check WiFi connection with another device-can you access app store via computer or mobile device? If you can it's still worth checking the link to the TV. If this is OK then the fault's with the TV or its software. Have you updated the software recently, either manually or automatically? This may solve the problem.

How do you get the TV remote apps to hook up to your tv? Does it have to be ran through my WiFi motum? It is a older Toshiba tv

Your TV and control device with the apps need to be on the same network. If your TV cannot connect to the network, you will not be able to control it using the apps.

How can I get the setup buttons on my phillips tv to put in a new wifi

First of all you need to have a WiFi (wireless) home network, i.e. the modem/router you use to access the internet from your computer must be WiFi (check with your Internet service provider). If you have that, open the menu on your TV using the remote and go to Set Up Network Connection and follow the instructions.

My Samsung tablet wll not let me load Facebook newsfeed.I can not log in to Google. It does let me access games

Make sure the wifi/3g is turned on and connected to a network with internet access. You might need to refresh your router and modem as my Galaxy Tab sometimes gets messed up if I log on to another wifi network away from home. i.e. McDonalds/Pizza Hut etc. I may be connected to my wifi, but my tablet doesn't have a correct IP address if it has one at all. The internet speed can be a factor as games don't use a much bandwidth as apps like Google and Facebook.

Im trying to connect my wii to the internet at my new house and it won't it keeps saying unable to find access point. please confirm the ssid and try again?

I'll advise briefly, but suggest you find the router page address (something like You can find this by looking in the manual for the router. You can also double click to open the router and then "open device webpage"

This will allow you to access the router settings and configure the wireless protocols and passwords / security. Without knowing which router you are using, I cannot give specific help.

You need to ensure that the wireless password that you set in the router is typed EXACTLY into the network connection on your PC / laptop
