    Physical access to install surveillance

    Hi. My question is. Is it possible to install something into the hdmi socket of a smart TV replacing it or installing something that connects to it where the hdmi is located to be able to remotely see what is displayed on the TV OR install a custom software/firmware into the TV that enables this to happen?

    Is someone aware of such technology, and is it even possible?

    Yes, you can built a HDMI pass-thru device. Technically it's in violation of the HDMI licensing agreements to prevent protected HDCP content from being digitally mirrored. But allegedly there are dodgy Chinese OEM's who DGAF in their local market.

    I'd worry more about someone inserting an in-line USB keylogger when you can't see the back of your PC. Those can have remote data transfer.
