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. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
