Scary shit. Does anyone know why a cable box would turn on internally when a person enters the room? I have been logging this activity for 2 months. I'm afraid of coming across as paranoid, so I just ignore it, but it did the same thing to my daughter today.

Guess I am just a weirdo.

 Quoting: Watching the world


What happens is you place the cable box under a cardboard box does it appear to have an IR sensor light?
 Quoting: SilverPatriot


I will try and see in the morning. If it does what does that mean?
 Quoting: Watching the world


I am uncertain however, my thinking is if the cable control box awakens upon movement into the room, n IR (infrared sensor) is involved and if so they can be played with. Blinking lights will continuously, keep the sensor on an IR flashlight pointed into the beam will flood the sensors with light overload.

I believe the objective would be to make the data gathered as useless s possible and a cardboard box over the unit would show nothing.

YES and here is a list.

1.Email
2.TV
3.Cell phone
4.PC
5.Video game systems
6.Cars
7.Gps device
8.Cable TV devices like HDTV box, tivo
9.Store cards with discounts
10.Video security cameras
11.Your neighbors
12.Your public profile aka the internet
13.School
14.Anyone who provides services to your home spy under special programs.

This is a short list but if you keep going you get the idea.

Yes. Much info is logged with the above, but never looked at unless you're of specific interest, or are a member of a specific interest group, like GLP. stoner

If constant observation of citizens was occurring, and the 24/7 hour OBS of say, 10 people, was the standard for one observer-full-time-equivalaent (3.5 employees) then the Gov't could employ about 80 million "observers" to watch 310 million citizens. Of course, the employees would necessarily be low-wage English speakers in far-away countries.

1/2 of 1% would be 400,000 employees. At 20K/yr each that would be $8 billion. I guess that's less than President Zero has wasted on some energy companies.

Samsung’s 2012 top-of-the-line plasmas and LED HDTVs offer new features never before available within a television including a built-in, internally wired HD camera, twin microphones, face tracking and speech recognition. While these features give you unprecedented control over an HDTV, the devices themselves, more similar than ever to a personal computer, may allow hackers or even Samsung to see and hear you and your family, and collect extremely personal data.

While Web cameras and Internet connectivity are not new to HDTVs, their complete integration is, and it's the always connected camera and microphones, combined with the option of third-party apps (not to mention Samsung's own software) gives us cause for concern regarding the privacy of TV buyers and their friends and families.

had read about this on another forum about 6-8 months ago. Many ppl were pretty convinced that this has been going on for a long time, but It's only recently started to gain some awareness. I had never heard about this, didn't know if it was anything that someone shld be concerned about, but it did start me thinking of the 'what-ifs'

Call me paronoid if you'd like, but the following day, I went out and bought some black electrical tape. Covered all the cams, and disabled the microphones....'just-in-case'.

Took me 5 minutes, and the tape was less than $3.00 yet the peace of mind I gained was priceless.

I'll take better note of it next time it runs.

it's kind of 'out there' already, and i'll give you an example....

i bought a remote home webcam that has infra-red leds to put up at home whilst i worked away to keep an eye on the property....

i can view/hear sound and it will record activities upon movement and email me......

i can also move zoom and record over the internet...

can't see why the government/ corporations and PTB can't do the same.... or how long they have been doing it with out our knowing.....

And, no, I don't think it's paranoid. About a year ago, I was turning on my laptop and noticed that my camera (built in webcam) flashes twice after it boots up to the desktop. I always thought that was strange, and so, maybe I'll just be paranoid with ya hf
