Super Bowl TV deals - brands to avoid and prefer for SDDP compatibility

Recommended Posts

That time of the year has come again. With this great event comes a flurry of TV deals. I am in a market for a cheaper TV that does not need to have all bells and whistles but needs to be reliably controlled by my C4 system. Any recommendation on brands to focus on vs. stay away would be great. And ideally which models have built in SDDP (I believe for Samsung for ex, it only starts at some point in the price range). 

I am quite curious about brands like Vizio, TCL, HiSense or even Sharp. 

This is a "secondary" TV. Ideally 4k and HDR as most sets do have it. But it is replacing an older 42" Samsung that has never worked well with C4, is not even full HD and is on a stand. A solid 55" will be a great upgrade 😉

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

To the OP, if you ever want to look what has official support, you can search the C4 driver database (https://drivers.control4.com/solr/drivers/browse?&fq=certified%3A"true")

That being said, there are great paid drivers out there for Roku TVs that would fall in your price range (https://drivers.control4.com/solr/drivers/browse?&fq=certified%3A"true") and newer Vizio TVs (https://annex4.link/drivers/vizio-smartcast-tv). I can personally vouch for the Roku TV driver being very good. You've got plenty of options.
