Weeping Angel No, you were with a probability bordering on certainty not spied on by the Weeping Angel at least as described in the leaked documents. Why? The attack involved a physical component—"physically plugging a USB cable"—which makes it very unlikely that you were targeted. After all, they would have to deploy an actual physical spy to deploy that ...

I'm drawing primarily from this article on ibtimes.com. There are several things you should realise: Weeping Angel can only infect Samsung TV's from 2012 and 2013. From the article referenced: The Weeping Angel hack only works on Samsung TVs released in 2012 or 2013. From Samsung’s 2012 lineup, the UNES8000F, E8000GF plasma and UNES7550F models are at ...

To answer your second question, yes, this attack was publicized in 2013 at Black Hat. Two Korean researchers demonstrated an attack that was developed against Android. Attacking TVs was easier than phones, because they didn't have to worry about excessive battery draining giving away the existence of the bug. The link above is to the slide presentation. ...

There are multiple aspects. Let's try on the 'means, motive. and opportunity' filter: Means: Weeping Angel is (one) technical possibility, provided you have a particular make, model and year of TV. BTW If someone wanted to bug you, how likely is is that they would use this particular option, instead of some other kind (perhaps more mass-produced) of bug? ...

I found a workaround for this, you add a new TV device for each activity. I figured I should post it, as I have not found any information on this elsewhere. In MyHarmony app, click Devices and add a new device for the tv. In Power settings you can add a command after poweron for you quick access button you have defined on your LG Magic Remote, this setting ...

These problems are always tricky to figure out. The approach I take is to first document each network interface on each device, including routers, access points, and POWERlan adapters. Record the MAC address, IP address, default gateway, netmask, and hostname. Now, go to your main DHCP server (probably in your home router) and make sure its logs show the ...

According to the TV model groups of the Samsung Smart TV developer site, the UE6300 series uses TV SDK 4.1, which is part of the "legacy" versions (newer versions use Tizen). You can find the relevant software here (in the "Samsung TV SDK for Legacy Platform" section, selecting version 4.1. Documentation is available here. Since this is now an 8-year old "...

Here's a very late answer: I found that setting the interkey delay to zero in the Harmony desktop app (Devices/LG TV/Change Device Settings/Device delay settings/Inter-key delay) means a single keypress is interpreted as a long press and triggers the quick menu action. The disadvantage is that you can't use the numeric keys to enter a channel number but it's ...

The problem was the "." in the nameing of the files. The files were named e.g.: "Doctor Who (2005) - S01E01 - Rose.720p.x264 AC3.mkv" I renamed them to e.g.: "Doctor Who (2005) - S01E01 - Rose_720p_x264 AC3.mkv" and viola: It worked!

You can't. I have the 50 inch model with the same crappy TV4 apps. (COMPLETE GARBAGE) TCL NEEDS to be embarrassed by loading such garbage. The only option is to either purchase an android box (NVIDA Shield) or some other external streaming device like a Roku or Firestick. Our "smart" tvs are forced to remain DUMB.

Google Assistant is not something you buy, you buy devices that support Google Assistant to varying degrees (e.g. a Nest Home Hub Max supports just about everything possible, where as a Google Home Mini supports less because it doesn't have a screen or a camera). Nearly all modern Android phones support Google Assistant, which will respond to the "OK, ...
