No more Pirate TV. That it in a nutshell.

What about things like Youtube? Last I checked we didn't need pirate TV because every person on the planet can publish their own videos to a much larger audience on the internet.

If and When the Sugar Honey Iced Tea spills and drips onto the fan, no one will be able to set up an analog shop and broadcast their song.

Sure they will. Digital Tv's can still pick up an analog signal. It is the Analog TV's that can't get a digital signal.

If the internet takes a dump one day you can bet your butt that pirate tv will be back stronger then ever.

Yikes, If Comcast actually ever releases this, I'm switching to Satellite.

Or just switch the camera off? Or cover it with a cushion if you are particularly paranoid.

The OP is laughable BS - pixels are cannot spy on you.

I suppose I should clarify my original statement in this thread. I would not be surprised if a plan such as this existed. However, the tech described in the OP is dubious, I agree.

Just saying that this is the sort of idea (in general) that might make the PTB cream their...uh...corn! Yeah.

1984 had the telescreens that were a "two-way street," and I can't believe it would be THAT difficult to create that sort of thing. As for the storage... Given that there are huge amounts of money missing in our country, many locations that are off limits for civilians, drugs sold for TONS of black ops, why might we figure that the PTB have not created a "super storage" facility?

I live in the UK and it has more cameras per head than anywhere but China - that's genuinely worrying.

Why the hell would The Man want to spy on you while you watched TV?? They would end up with billions of hours of people sat on couches scratching their balls and saying stuff like "Love, get me another beer from the fridge while you're up" and "Will you kids just SHUT UP! I'm watching Lost!". Good luck to the spooks who have to trawl through that lot.

1. Money - I think we all by now should no that money is NOT an issue. That's a silly argument. The money isn't based on anything real anyway. We still borrow and lend money. So knock it off.

2. Storage space - come on. In 196 million or so square miles of land and water, don't tell me there isn't space

3. DTVs dont have that technology in them - how the hell would you know - please spare me the "my cousin builds tvs nonsense" Its like some of you people expect to crack open a TV and see a circuit board with a big SPY sign on it

4. Why would they if they alread have wiretaps and street cams? - genius. Those of us who are intune with crime know not to speak on the phone. And assumin that our houses are tapped "we" speak witht the TV loud thinking that anybody listening couldn't hear it. Also. People do a lot of illegal things with the Tv on. A lot of us in us are addicts to it, so u would catch a lot more than people scratching their nutz.
So it is practical..
But its like satellites that can pick up liscense platws, so to speak. Doesn't mean they're going to get EVERY license plate and store it. They monitor people of interest only.

I'm not saying its true, but stop trying to act smart by saying its impossible

i have digital cable, and something weird happened the other day. I had paused a show I was watching, and while the screen was still, I suddenly heard people talking, almost like a telephone call.

It sounded like a local person, I'm in Brooklyn, this person sounded like a guy from Brooklyn would. It only lasted a few seconds, but it was definitely odd.

has this happened to anyone else?

I don't know if anyone has brought this up, but to me it seems like they are trying to clear up waves so that they can use RFID's more efficiently.

It was probably just your TV picking up a radio or telephone conversation. I used to get that on my guitar amp all the time.

To the thread topic, I highly doubt they will literally spy on you through the pixels in your TV. The switch over will however, make it much easier to spy on watching habits and whatnot so they can easier keep tabs on how to further their manipulation of the general populous.

its not about watching you. Its about controlling and manipulating information. 1984 was about much more that the telescreen READ THE BOOK. if they control all tv and radio outlets, and they do, they get to say how events happened in the past. he who controls the past controls the present. and for the person who is going to say The Internet!!!!

Imagine a bunch of government employees getting paid to watch millions of people sitting on sofas, drinking beer, eating chips and staring straight at them. But, then again most of the plots to overthrow the government take place right in front of the TV during Oprah...

HAHA, Some people have WAY to much time on their hands to think up this stuff!

There is no way that pixels on a TV or computer can be used as a camera or anything else to monitor someone... Feedback of viewng habits on channel selection and the like yes...
On a computer with a webcam & mic etc yes its possible to do it, and there are ways to listen in on a phone quite easily without having to make a physical connection....

What worries me about the digital switchover and the stopping of all analogue transmissions (inc a lot of radio) - is that we can only see and listen to WHAT THEY WANT US TO.

So getting an alternative news view will become impossible, especially if internet controls being talked about come into effect The porno and terrorist agruments are being used to justify the blocking of web sites - funny how "alternative news" sites also get blocked.....

So the real threat is shutting off any flow of information outside of official lines - making "pirate" broadcasts impossible to receive as well... setting the stage for population manipulation with no way of checking anything out. In the wrong hands a country could be made to believe anything !

Shortwave radio could become very important to our freedom and understanding of reality!

As an Audio/Video Tech and Computer Tech, I believe I'm qualified to say this new technology is possable and in use. Don't let the government "spin doctors" fool you into believing their story.

Anyone out there that is still dumb enough to think that knowledge isn't still "power" are doing and thinking exactly what and how "big brother" wants you to do and think. We live in a time when technology changes in minutes not years. Anything you can dream up can be reality almost instantly. At my age it is scary to look back and see how little privacy we have compared to what I had 40 to 50 years ago. This has all been force fed to us in small increments under the disguises of convenience and keeping up with the times and in most cases necessary to function in our world today. As with most advances in technology it started out with good intentions but somewhere along the way the line of ethics and right and wrong became blurry. If you own and carry or ride in anything with the latest technology the possibility someone is watching you and possibly influencing you in some way is very real. Just remember this; no one cares more about your privacy than you do so take whatever steps that you can to guard it. Thanks for your time.

You are a liar, plain and simple. However, as a sock puppet someone created to back up their incredibly insane point, I doubt I'll see you respond.

It makes total sense for the New World Order to keep an eye on people in their own home. They won't be watching everyone's living room all the time. They will be monitoring all suspect citizens, those who search for and use certain websites and blogs, those who have suspect e-mails, those who join certain political groups, those who protest about the government, those who won't hand over their guns, those who refuse to go into the Fema camps, those who mention certain words like freedom and liberty. The sheeple deserve everything they read up, wake up and rise up and don't be one of them.

Anybody seen this?

A popular video circulating on You Tube shows the discovery of a spy camera and a microphone hidden inside a digital TV converter box. Such devices are part of a government and industry surveillance program that is undoubtedly connected to the forced digital TV switchover being rolled out in the UK and US.

The camera and microphone were hidden inside a MAGNAVOX TB110MW9 Digital to Analog Converter box.

I don't know about the pixel part, but it wouldn't surprise me if that becomes possible in later gens of screens.
On the other hand one thing I do know works is... you can turn a speaker into a microphone simply by plugging it in a microphone port.
With it being digital, you could probably hardwire a speaker to work both ways at any given time.

Let's hope you don't dicuss anti establishment while watching the teletubbies.

You say that they can view / listen to you through a pixel on ur tv? that is absolutely obsurd. You say you know this because of your job? well you are full of lies. It is 100% not possible to view anyone through a pixel on a tv screen. Any of you that believe that have simply gone paranoid and your losing your mind. Ive worked with technology for over 20 years and ive even worked with governments and again i'll say... 100% NOT POSSIBLE. DREAM ON BUDDY

I know from the job I do that individual PIXELS on your screen can be used as cameras and listening devices.

What a load of HOGWASH!
You must be crazy or something dude.
TV's don't have a transmitter.
They only have a receiver!
