theres a lot of dumb poo poo about smart tvs but i dont really feel like a couple of seconds of boot time is one of them

my Samsung gets slower and slower to respond after turning on (as in, press a button in the remote, nothing happens) unless you do a hard reboot (long press power off) because it has some sort of idiot JVM-like memory leak

e: for all my complaining about it it is a good screen at a decent price and does support every service you could need

also all TV software is trash

if i turn on my apple tv, it auto-boots the TV at the correct input. same deal with my switch. those are the only two use cases for my TV. works fine.

same, but the switch can't turn it off when its done, while the atv can. annoying to have to find & use the actual tv remote for that one thing

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

it's also a complete whiff for identifiability. it could be solid for go, dashed for yellow, and dots for stop instead of a color bar, competing with the top to bottom pattern recognition of a regular light
