Home Theater is Listening??
So I'm upgrading my home theater, finally. I'm getting a Samsung Q90R for the wall (82"!) and a Yamaha RX-A780 receiver. Both of these heavily market that they use Google / Siri / Alexa voice controls. I have no desire for any smart speakers in my home! Does anyone know if these features can be turned off or otherwise disabled? Or am I forced to facilitate the surveillance state if I want the latest home theater gear?
Thanks in advance.
(Yes, I know my phone is probably already listening to me! Nonetheless, I don't want any (other) "always listening" devices!)
