Re: I'm an old fashioned guy

I prefer my TVs dumb. I am using a TV decoder anyway and don't need the TV for anything but display.

Indeed. Purpose-built devices like Roku, Tivo, etc. are vastly superior to the underpowered hardware, crappy interfaces, phone-home surveillance, and low-quality apps that make up a so-called "modern" TV.
