Instead of a dark room filled with no light in the dark hours of the day or in a dark room you can have a back-up energy power supply for optional Internet connection to download small files of video, images or sounds to rest to or study to or for what ever purpose. You only need a small box through which the TV would be connected to, to download these files to your box and project them to the screen when the TV is off. A cable modem and power cord to the cable box would be all that is needed. You could jack into it and upload all your Ipod songs to your TV!
With the small amount of electricity used and the media possibilities the choices are endless!
Reward: To use the TV as a simple computer with out spending more than fifty bucks! Also give it some thing to do while it is off! Ha!
