SMART BOX FOR DUMB TV SETS
ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE STUCK WITH A LARGE, RELATIVELY NEW, LCD OR LED TV WITHOUT ANY SMART FEATURES? WELL, NOW YOU CAN “SMARTEN” UP YOUR TV, EVEN AN OLD CRT, WITH INTELLIGENT FEATURES
Old television sets never bothered about the Internet. Some LCDs can go
online with a USB adapter. With no web connection, apps were never a feature. The closest you get
is built-in games. With just channels to flip through, CRTs
needed a remote only for controls.
No customisation possible beyond tuning the picture to your preference. Old CRTs can’t play video files without
help, old LCD play some formats.
Older models suffer from limitations in sound output, though tweaks are possible . With only regular remotes for control, motion control was never an option. Could play only content coming in through AV cable, no file sharing. No option of sharing any
content on the device.
