Default repurposing random consumer electronics

Saw and recalled the linux repurposing of certain Linksys wireless routers and Ernst's recent cellphone effort. I wonder how many other items are sitting around that could be doing GIMPS work in their mostly idle days and nights. seems a candidate. How about the various other models of smart TVs?
Or addon boxes? shows sufficient ram for primality testing or trial factoring is typical, and they're based on a variant of Android.

Conversely, how should one secure/firewall a smart TV?
