Another question. I have surfed around a bit and found that these "smart" tv's are vulnerable to hacking. Should I be worried about it? Is there a way to connect it to the internet without it being part of our whole network? Should I just disconnect it from the internet and not bother with it?

Frankly, I doubt we will use the internet much on the TV. It's easy enough to just plug a laptop into it with an HDMI cable when we want to use it as a monitor, and this whole feature doesn't really interest me if it can allow a hacker to comb through all the computers in the house.
