Wired tracked down the creator of the video—a 28-year-old software engineer named Adam Chronister—who now admits that yes, it's just a hoax. No tiny camera, no microphone—although Chronister claims that a pal did, indeed, tell him the rumor about the hidden DTV camera.
So—know anyone who got fooled? Think the hoax is just a "smoke screen" (as Wired puts it) for the real DTV conspiracy?

Yes, to be honest I didn't even watch the video, it seemed so implausible that you could just crack open one of those boxes, and wow! there's a camera!
Interesting point about how the truly baseless stories are the ones the media picks up on, but other very possible issues, with documented proof of being possible, go unnoticed and unreported.
