WTF?
I would love to hear the explaination for why that GD camera is in there from the manufacturer.

Nothing new here folks, on the Microphone end anyway, not positive how long there have been cameras in the cable boxes. If im not mistaken, the early forms of "cameras" in cable boxes read heat signatures to discern between the different types of people that are watching. I recommend all who watch the Video above watch the PBS commercial about the Coupons in the Related section to the lower right, its almost comical, if it werent so...well you know...

A digital converter box is hooked up to nothing except an antenna (often just a set of small rabbit ears), so what good would a camera or microphone do?  Unless the signals will somehow be transmitted back through the antenna?

The scary thing in that scenario is, most of the converter boxes were probably purchased using government coupon cards, which means that the government could have a record of who purchased each particular box.  If the boxes are transmitting through the antennas with an identifying serial number or other code, government agents with local receivers could lock-in to whomever's signal they want to spy on.

NWO NOW i know why they are forcing this transition!!!  Thanks for that post!  when i get my free government spy box, i will open it up for sure.

My question to the forum is:
Where does the info go?  If this is free-to-air DTV, then this means this box has a transmitter in it?
 
How many watts is the transmitter?  normal suckers like us only have the ability to broadcast a ONE watt signal over FM or AM, so how will "they" utilize this?

Very good point. I wonder if they have some classfied device that is used to wirelessly get inside the box. Kinda like something that would be operated from your classic survaliance van within a certain distance. The wired cable company systems are much more dangerous because if these cameras are put into digital cable boxes there is that 2 way communication and I think they have MAC addresses.

why don't we all just take our cable boxes apart as well and look around in them! i have time warner. they give you a cable box to watch and listen to you. they offer you the digital home phone, yet again to listen to you with. they give you home security system, yet again to listen into your home. they give you road runner internet to see what you look up and read your emails.

i don't buy into this video with the cheap spy camera inside. the guy can't focus and give up a good up close shot so we can see if it looks real or homemade etc. if they are putting cameras inside, wouldnt they use better up to date cameras. i dont trust anything like cable boxes but this video looks to good to be true.

The microphone didn't look like a microphone to me, but that did look an awful lot like a camera.

If you're trying to pump-out millions of converters as cheaply as possible, you're probably going to use cheap components.

Wow watching that I felt myself going through the same feeling as when I first woke up to the NWO. I was looking at it but my mind kept saying "it's not real, it's not real! it can't be! they can't be that advanced" but yes they are. It would be very easy for these boxes to transmit back data via some type of cell phone signal the towers are everywhere. I have a small USB wireless broadband modem no larger than that camera in the video.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Thus; digital broadcast. Digital really only means binary - and two way communication isn't at all difficult for that medium.

Alex has been talking about this for a couple of years, at least.

The guy in the video clearly said he bought it from Wal-Marx, a Magnavox.  We know Wal-Marx works hand-in-hand with the Military Industrial Complex.

Just 'cause visible electromagnetic radiation is somewhat blocked by the front panel doesn't mean that invisible, infrared em radiation isn't clear.

Just as walls are opaque and glass is see-through in the visible wavelengths, at a different wavelength in the em spectrum walls are see-through and glass is opaque!

When they first advertised that the loooving Govt was giving coupons for $40 off the box, I immediately questioned. The Govt doesn't give anything, unless for a reason. I didn't get a coupon and I'm having a party to kiss their ass goodbye. I will watch the 80+ Documentaries I have.

I found a post here (need to be a member to view attachments) with a picture of the inside of one of these Magnavox's.

I got the model number from Wal-Mart's page and after a bit of searching, I found this. I don't see any camera attached to the transformer in this one.

No doubt there's some other 'agenda' with digital TV, for sure - but that might be too gutsy for them. Of course, it may not be in all of them, or any..

Can't say - just posting what I found.

I think Comcast Cable Boxes have had cameras and microphones for some time now.  Wasn't there a story about that here a while ago?

I think the video is bogus.  For one thing did some of you notice the camera appears to be mounted on the power transformer!  That probably rules it out right there.  Not to mention that the little camera is one like you can order from the spy shops online and maybe even pick up at your local electronics store.  Microphone?  Looked like a capacitor to me.  If they actually put a camera and microphone in the units they would be better integrated to reduce cost.  And as others have pointed out these are converters for in-coming signals not two-way.  That too would have added additional cost and the idea was to make the boxes as cheap as possible (and some are so cheaply made they don't work too well).  So who with expendable income are going to go buy some boxes and disassemble them to see if there are actually any cameras inside?

According to one of our programmers this video is a hoax. He has the exact same converter box and he cracked it open and the circle looking thing the video was saying is a camera is not there.

What he told me, take what you will from it.
