oh, I also installed Qubes on a small PC tied to a friends TV. It's waaaaaaay 
more secure than any Smart-TV you could ever buy.. :') I added some stuff like 
USB-Remote, and I'm planning to add a wireless numpad to execute pre-programmed 
commands such as automating alt+space+f for full-screen, switch sound and 
screen for multiple of TV screens, and stuff like this. Planning to add a 
hardware key, maybe a Yubi-key, so that whenever leaving the TV/desktop 
crossover system, is esentially locked-out from tampering. It's straight 
forward stuff, it doesn't take much to set up. Qubes isn't meant to be used as 
a Smart-TV, but it actually works quite well. If you're tired of insecure 
SmartTV's, then this should be a nice add too.
