    The Truth
    So does your crock pot I bet.Theres actually refrigerators now that will let you know when you're running low on things.Imagine what else they can do without you even knowing it.Welcome to the police state,or the forth Reich,whichever way you prefer to say it.

    Comcast has Voice control. Just yesterday I finally found the off switch.

    I think it may have needed me to have a smart phone though , as my remote does not appear to have a speaker.

    What's very disconcerting to me though, Last summer they came to my door & told me I had a Signal Power Leak in my House somewhere .

    Just the Fact they knew this tells me they know too Much.

    They should Not know anything going in Beyond the Pole where their Wire
    heads into my House.

    & nothing Coming out.

    Now that could be a concern,, especially if the people who are paid to eavesdrop are actually collecting the information that they can use against me in my run for the presidency.

    About 9 months ago when I first heard this I was furious .So much so I called Samsung (PR) dept. and worked my up the chain of Managers as far as I could.Then I chewed him a... blank ! Besides a mickrophone there is ALSO a camera inside their "smart" TV.That's what really pissed me off.I asked this manager several times .What gives you the right to invade my privacy ? Why is there a camera in my TV ? You guessed it.I got no answers.Anyhow I informed him that I'm now filing a formal complaint. I think down the road they will be paying a Hugh suit to all the owners of Samsung Smart TV owners. And I made it Very clear I will Never buy Anything "Samsung" EVER again.

    RTR,the brand you buy doesnt matter,its in all of them.If you have kids and they play a video game system,guess what,theres cameras in the game systems also.Theres also facial recognition.Your complaints unfortunately will fall on deaf ears.

    The Truth
    The funny thing about that is peoples cell phones do the same thing.If you also download apps on to your phone the apps also do it.That lawsuit will most likely fail.Just as when a majority of the pentagon workers were caught downloading child porn a few years back.They werent prosecuted because there were just to many of them.

    I'd find out where the Camera is & Cover it with Shoe Goo or PC7.

    The Speaker, A spike trough it, Or find a way in & cut the Wire.

    If I find out there is a speaker on my TV Control Box, & where I'll spike the Speaker
    just as long as I'm sure the Remote still works of Course.

    Not that I do much Talking, Except to myself.

    I actually can go a Month without using my Voice on occasions.
    Even so. It bugs Me to Think they can even listen to me fart.

    Or Swear profusely when I step on something Sharp, stub my toe or spill Coffee

    I don't worry about the cameras, I just watch tv nude, in some very undesirable positions so I hope they like it
