Demolishun390510dWell when TV sets installed hidden cameras to spy on you is probably when that happened. I dont connect my TV to internet, ever. I just use it as an HDMI monitor and analog receiver. For casting I use Connect with an app on Android. Funny thing as well. My TV supports the 4K res, I only ever use it as 1920x1080... wasted money.
Ubbe81810d@Demolishun nah. I never connect TV:s, I connect my Ubuntu mini computer and hook it with HDMI. But I still have to use the settings on the TV. And that is always a pain. And in this case crazy enough to become a rant. What I want from you is an explanation, what are these people thinking?????? What kind of team comes up with this idea, approves it, implement it and makes the fault default and ships it onto an unsuspecting world? Wtf.
Overscan has been a standard feature in TVs since forever, because broadcasters insert all kinds of shit to the edges of the image. That's always the first thing you disable when you plug a computer in.
saucyatom50410dMy parents got a new Philips TV last year and I was positively surprised at how bearable the settings menu is. I disabled its WiFi one day without telling them, they can use the Shield TV I gifted them for YouTube - though both are running Android TV, I am not sure for how long the TV will get updates..
(poor, underutilized Shield!)
Btw: No Overscan. Which imbecile would decide to enable that by default on HDMI anyway?
