actually the science says that they can use the coaxial cable for a two way data transfer of audio... NOT VIDEO...
meaning... that anytime a government entity wants, they can have a basic bug implanted in your home... by listening thru your speakers... (speakers are a form of microphone) .
the point is mute though... any government entity that wants, can just come right in and place a proffessional expensive top tech type of bug, that you will never find, anytime they want... (by claiming that you might have something to do with terrorism)

so the point being... it can be done, but is so much easier and better to use the toys they give the agents to play with...

now your nosy pervert neighbor with the mail order electronics degree is another story

I really like this site, and it's great that other people think of the same things that I think of. I have wondered for years if the government could watch you through your TV. I had a TV with a speaker phone in it, and I always wondered if someone was listening or watching, etc. I like my privacy.

I heard Alex jones on Coast to Coast say something about the actual cable box having a microphone inside it that records everything it hears and then computers figure out what type of things to sell you based on whats being said in your house.

I dont find this surprising, since the phone company has always recorded everything, even if you speak into the dialtone, its recorded onto systems known as ESS and CAMA

It's complacency like this that allows our personal rights and freedoms to be taken away from us. I refuse to just sit here and accept that cable boxes are spying on us. There are thousands of videos on youtube of people taking apart their boxes and discovering cameras and microphones in them.

This scandal is more despicable than the Murdock scandal, but the Mainstream Media won't cover the millions of people across the country outraged at their loss of privacy.

Cable companies are now putting out commercials that show "normal" looking people joking and laughing about the possibilities of being spied on, and answering their suspicions similarly to an answer in this very thread, "at least someone can see you naked"...

No. I don't accept that.

No matter how many times they force it down our throats, I like my privacy in my home, and I refuse to willing accept a camera in my bedroom or livingroom.

The problem I have is just like the police might take books you have read & use against you during a court case they might start looking at what you watched & do the same.

I have a friend that works for Comcast & they get everything for free, but they don't watch porn because they know everything you watch is loggged. I'm not exactly sure why they don't want their supervisor/coworkers to know they watch porn, whether their embarrased or maybe their afraid it might have an effect on their job etc.

I dont about in the States, but here in the UK, we have a thing called the Data Protection Act. I have worked in telecoms for a number of years, and have worked for NTL, and I can tell you that:

a)It is prohibited to look at another account without good reason and/or permission.

Just because it's illegal, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. There was a high profile case some years back about a PSCO who illegally accessed her boyfriends PNC record, to make sure he wasn't cheating on her. She got caught, but the ACPO had to admit, it probably happens quite frequently, and doesn't get detected.

More recently, a number of actual Police officers were dismissed or placed on administrative suspension for exactly the same thing.

Which is why I am a firm believer that record views in any data retrieval system should be logged, and audited, not just work on a trust principle.
