re: You might be watched through your cable box/DVR while you watch tv


How are we being watched? The following is a list of ways we are allowing ourselves to be surveilled by government and businesses:

Smart TV cameras
Smart phone cameras
Tablet computer cameras
Smart electric meters
Home surveillance cameras  that can be checked from smart phones

Add any I may have forgotten.
Traffic and crime cameras
Business cameras
Voluntary DNA screenings (medical, ancestry.com)
Biometric scanners for school lunch, banking, theme park admission
Email addresses
Web searches
Phone calls
Texts
DVRs
RF ID tags on products
Credit and debit card purchases
Automobile plug in devices
Income Taxes
Obamacare (medical records)

The V-chip when introduced by law said what things it would allow the parent to do regarding control of the tube regarding child viewing. The never said what it would allow the govt. and others to do regarding you.

NC, probably the last thing I'm worrying about right now is someone watching me through my cable box. If they are, God bless 'em. It's not that exciting . . . . . . yet.

There are youtube videos years ago that show a microphone and camera in the cable boxes and people were called nuts. There is also a video where a guy took apart a box and found nothing. The whole thing is based on the gov. forcing digital v. analog TV and giving away free converter boxes.

Yep, Hoover's recordings of MLK's "extracurriculars" were equally innocuous, I'm sure. After all, nothing came of them IRL . . . that we're aware of.

National security, and all.

And I seriously want to know your reasoning behind that statement.
