oh, that would annoy me too. The one built-in to my Vizios just leaves me be unless i specifically select it.Well it can suck my disconnected left nut.
I disabled the wifi connection for it last night and then opted-out of all of its stupid user agreements because I'm sick and tired of it popping over what I'm watching.
Samsung TVs are really shit for everything but their picture quality. Their OS is garbage and so are their apps. Their remotes are stupid and the voice control is about as dumb as it gets. I really don't understand why people buy them.
i largely do to. 99% of the tv interactions go through the Fire Cube. But sometimes its nice to be able to toss something up on the screen at the press of a button from a phone. Chromecast is the epitome of KISS. Its got basically no features, but its super quick and reliableI have a roku, an HTPC, and a bluray player already, so I just want the TV to be a TV.
