Hope it doesn't catch on (Score: 0) by Anonymous Coward on 2014-09-08 20:33 (#2S5Y) This smells like another move to try and make TVs have a short lifespan. Is plugging another box into a HDMI port that difficult? Re: Hope it doesn't catch on (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-09-08 21:27 (#2S5Z) I plugged my DESKTOP into my TV via HDMI. I do everything I could ever want on my TV that I did on a PC monitor without restriction of functionality or ability to update software. I will NEVER buy a Smart** TV...EVAR!!!** Smart TV is not actually smart. It is dumb, lacks security, and software updates are not at your discretion.
