Do 4K TVs exist that aren't smart TVs? I would much rather run what I need to run and stream through an external drive or a Raspberry Pi.
>>76587619Yes, they're called monitors.
>>76587619I need to know this too. Monitors don't seem a viable choice.
>>76587619Yeah I have one near exactly like that in OP it's a 49 or 50 inch 4k tv. You just usually need to look at walmart for them, smart TV's are the worst just don't hook them up to wifi.
>>76587619RCA has them. Look them up at walmart.
>>76587619china makes them
>>76587781>>76587779This any good? https://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-50-Class-4K-Ultra-HD-2160P-LED-TV-RLDED5098-UHD/54898727
>>76587619Just don't connect to the internet. Ignoring the smartshit I like the internet of some of the smart TVs more. On Roku TVs you're able to switch between different input on the home screen
>>76587840* I like the interface of some of the smart TVs more

>>76587779>just don't hook them up to wifi.>>76587840>Just don't connect to the internet.This is not a defense. They'll jump on any open network they can hear if you don't give them one.https://ask.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=11033609&cid=55082489https://old.reddit.com/r/security/comments/bpjky4/worried_about_your_smart_tv_listening_in_simply/

>>76587859>ordering a smart TV with a microphoneNigga most smart TV's don't even have those or are we going to move the goal posts again. Your smart phone is probably doing it more>>76587820Sure? I guess I don't have that model mines LG
can't you just not connect the tv to the internet?
>>76587943Because obscure posts on the internet about TV's connecting to random wifi for updates. You just know they are transmitting all your audio it saved on it's small amount of flash to upload itself to samsung and nsa!Even though there is a good chance you could just assign it some kind of random ip like 10.0.0.1 and a non existent gateway to the point ti will always fail. Though it's far more fun to be unlike the other sheeple.
You don't actually use broadcast television in current decade, do you Anon?
>>76588021Wait shit, nevermind I misread the price tag. Oops.
Can this be /tvg/?Im looking for a good 43-46" 4k tv thats no more than $200 ($250 if i absolutely need to), anyone have any good recs?
So how long do you guys think it will be until TV makers start including cellular antennas with their Smart TVs so they can always phone home & display ads?
>>76588052Pretty sure some already have SiM slots for always online, but you still need to supply some SiM
>>76587966if it'll hop on an open wi-fi network I don't trust it to not say "Hmm, this wi-fi access point doesn't seem to be giving me a connection, I'll try this other one"also I don't want my TV sending any data at all about anything back home. Not just recorded audio.
>>76587859>They'll jump on any open network they can hear if you don't give them one.My TV does not do that and if it did, I'd return it if it was within the return window and get another TV that doesn't do that (most do not). If it was outside the return window I'd unscrew the back of the TV and clip the WiFi NIC antenna.
>>76587859Then connect it to a network and firewall it off.
How feasible would it be to simply literally rip out the guts? I don’t know how complicated smart TVs are.
>>76589338Why?Just don't connect it to a network, dumbass.
>not buying a 43" 4k LG monitor
>>76589338I'd be willing to do this too if there were guides on it
Smart TVs are fine, but if its pushing ads in it's UI like Samsung and Android TV is starting to do, then it can fuck right off. Almost considering one of those big format gaming displays, at least those are starting to come down to more reasonable prices now.
I run Plex hosted on my Seedbox server that has 100 gbps upload speed. I use an Amazon Fire TV Stick as the media player hooked to my 1080p TV, although there are issues with the video pausing a bit when I'm streaming a higher bitrate movie like a Blu Ray Remux. I think that since the Fire TV Stick only has 1 GB of RAM, it can't buffer the movie as much, thus it pauses a bunch. If I set up my own Media Player through a Raspberry Pi with 8GB of RAM, would that be enough for the video to buffer and stream seamlessly? If I upgrade to a 4K HDTV, would that Pi setup be enough to seamlessly stream Blu Ray 4K remuxes?
