Not really. Orwell just didn't imagine that computers could take over the monitoring roles. Orwell's vision was a NKVD type thing where it'd be people and not algorithms deciding if you've been good or not.

Even more, firmware on those devices is usually locked down unsecure garbage.

My parents have an LG LCD with led backlight (not those smartTV ones but still).
I torrent movies for them and put them on a USB flash drive so they can plug it in and watch their movie without shitty commercials.
But this model has problem with DTS audio which doesn't fucking play.
I wanted to do an update but discovered that either the vendor or the seller articifially changed the firmware version 16 iterations forward larger than it should come with, so the upgrade firmware won't trigger an update and they won't have to deal with devices with zozzled firmware

Under the traditional left-right paradigm all totalitarian governments are left wing you retard. Yes, the left includes Nazis (SOCIALISTS).

I'm aware that the Nazis are left wing but the left-right scale is flawed.

Nazis were technically a mix of both.

Fascism is a transcendence of the political scale of left and right. It is a third way.
Mind you Nazism is Fascism, but Fascism isn't Nazism.

It literally says you don't have to have voice recognition enabled, at the cost of reduced voice control functionality

You can remove the specific service that bugs you

This isn't really new anyway, services reliant of voice recognition (Google now, cortana, etc.) send what you say to the servers to determine what you said accurately

>>52617335
>anyone still using a big-ass CRT television? Ever since my competitive halo days, I refuse to use anything else/

Me. I don't give a shit. I have a CRT form the 80's.
>>
>>52617257
yep, they don't even have to listen
it will convert audio to text which can be automatically searched for keywords
there's also great progress in image recognition as well, so even that will soon be able to searched automatically

You can pretend to remove it and trust the corporation.Why would they ever lie?
>>
>>52619965
You could remove it if you wanted probably. This isn't a free product, so they're not as interested in you

Mainstream are usually transparent about what they collect - it's in their terms and conditions. They're governed by laws too

What's the point of buying a smart tv if you're gonna disable everything that makes it "smart"?

Voice assistant services like Siri, Cortana and Google Now only listen to what you say when you activate them. They don't lurk in the background while you don't require their assistance.

Just disconnect the TV from the network.

It's not like you need Internet access on it for anything.

it's not a smart tv
i should have put emphasis on this in my first reply, sorry

If you're seriously this paranoid (and you should seek help if you are), you can easily do traffic analysis to determine whether it's still sending your voice information after disabling the feature.

wait hang on, it says right there that you can just turn off voice recognition

Well, good thing you don't need to connect a TV to the internet then.

>>52623403
Yeah I don't know - I guess hitting a check box that says "We're not going to record anything we promise xDDD" is good enough for me! I don't have a copy of the source code, nor did I compile it, but I'm sure it totally stops the privacy invading feature. Paranoia, amirite???

Not that guy and I'm not saying there's any real reason to trust some such setting, but:
1) If they really wanted to hide it, why the fuck include it in the EULA in the first place? Legal reasons? If so, then
2) If they're telling you about it in order to not get their asses sued, they would still get their asses sued if they included an option to disable it that didn't actually do anything

Anyway, just get some HTPC, slap some Linux and Kodi on it, connect it to your TV. You'll have way more "smart" in your TV that way, better fucking everything and don't need to connect your spyscreen to the internet.
