How and why does Windows know about your TV?

Can someone explain this?

        What?

        The Media sharing broadcast feature that's been around since windows 7 could do this, it just wasn't really enabled by default on Home Edition till 10. The Media sharing feature will share device info/media/hostnames/etc via WiFi or the network(such as bluetooth) the TV is on.

        This isn't even Net+ level shit

          did you miss the part where the person replying said he had never used the TV with the computer, not even *cast it*?

            Yes, there is a network in most systems called BROADCAST networks, these can be used for reimaging machines over a network to simply dumping files easier.

            Are you actually moronic and don't know that even DHCP uses broadcast networks to send IP's?

            The users PC had multiple ways to detect the TV they just don't realize it. Sharing NETBIOS names is not uncommon or complex.

            yeah, well, the user says he didn't do that willingly. the question is now: why is MS Windows sending that info to MS?

            Home Network and Sharing is something most people turn on during setup when they connect to a network. It literally asks you after putting in your wifi password for the same time if you would like to turn it on Yes or No. 99.9% of people hit yes without a second thought.

            >do you really think computers get the type of device in the network from their fricking name? JFC...
            NTA but yes Smart TV's literally share that info via NETBIOS and other media sharing protocols to determine if it can talk. Apple has been doing this for like 2 decades.

    Windows can detect and interact with your TV for several reasons, primarily related to device connectivity and smart home integration. Here's a detailed look at how and why this happens:

    When you connect your TV to your Windows PC via HDMI or DisplayPort, the operating system uses the Display Data Channel (DDC) to communicate with the display device. This channel allows Windows to detect the type, model, and capabilities of the TV, such as resolution and refresh rate.

    If your TV and PC are connected to the same network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet), Windows can use network discovery protocols like Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP), or DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) to identify devices on the network. Smart TVs often broadcast their presence and capabilities, which Windows can detect.

    Some TVs have Bluetooth capabilities. If Bluetooth is enabled on both your TV and your Windows PC, the devices can pair and communicate. Windows can then identify and interact with the TV.

    Overall, the interaction between Windows and your TV is designed to enhance user experience by providing seamless connectivity and optimized functionality.

      Thanks, ChatGPT.

      I wonder: have you goys ever heard of UPnP? I bet none of you had ever heard of it.

      The naughty part is that it's in the diagnostic data tool report which indicates that Windows sends information to Microsoft about the user's TV.
      It's all just big data shit and a data point in millions but it's still irksome.

        When you connect to a network for the first time it asks you if this is a private network. Most people hit YES to make devices on the network discoverable and share basic device information

    How has been explained. Why is so they can direct ads to you directly on your OS though it could easily be used more nefariously like mapping out all possible vulnerable IoT devices in your home to exploit.
