The whole idea that there could be some camera built into your TV set and nobody technically oriented would notice it is beyond preposterous.
Infra red remote controls require a lens and a photocell adding a camera to the same input..always on always watching..not too too hard..its been done and will be again.

So can tin foil hats prevent them from recording us? or will we have to upgrade to a heavier metal?
We also are exposed to man-made sources of radiation, including medical and dental treatments, television sets and emissions from coal-fired power plants.
In a CRT, a stream of electrons is released from a heated cathode within a vacuum and accelerated by a high voltage toward a screen coated with a fluorescent material called a phosphor. The phosphor glows as a reaction to the electrons in the incident beam striking it, thus producing the light seen as an image on the front of the CRT.
Consumer Products 3.0%
Advantages of LCDs
Low frequency radiation is practically eliminated.
Disadvantages of CRTs
Radiation Emission; ELF from 60 Hz to 75 Hz and VLF from 10kHz to 30kHz.
In the next section, we will look at why some scientists believe that cell phones are harmful, and you'll find out what effects these ubiquitous devices may have.
RF radiation has the ability to heat human tissue, much like the way microwave ovens heat food. Damage to tissue can be caused by exposure to RF radiation because the body is not equipped to dissipate excessive amounts of heat. The eyes are particularly vulnerable due to the lack of blood flow in that area.
The added concern with non-ionizing radiation, the type of radiation associated with cell phones, is that it could have long-term effects.
Here are a few illnesses and ailments that have potential links to cell-phone radiation:
Just because the Internet has broken down geographic barriers, don't assume that Google doesn't care about geography.
With Google's new Latitude software, cell phone users can share their locations with others.
The company plans to launch software called Latitude on Wednesday that lets mobile phone users share their location with close contacts. Google hopes it will help people find each other while out and about and to keep track of loved ones.
"What Google Latitude does is allow you to share that location with friends and family members, and likewise be able to see friends and family members' locations," said Steve Lee, product manager for Google Latitude. For example, a girlfriend could use it to see if her boyfriend has arrived at a restaurant and, if not, how far away he is.
