'smart T.v's'. Can They Get A Virus?

The real question is, apart from co-incidental infections from exploits that are targetted at other platforms but also affect the TV in some way, will anyone bother targetting TVs. They usually don't have abundant resources to play with in the first place, typically don't store personal info (bank details etc), so IMO the only targetted attacks against such devices will be in the mischief arena rather than the 'black hat' arena.

Your PC antivirus software would in no way find a TV firmware virus (its not looking).
Agree DrP prefer the zip file to CD firmware update after scanning with my PC virus/malware software then again that may not help these day especially if its not PC related just device ?cheers laurie
