    So, I have a smart t.v. and was wondering if it's possible to have emulators on it via Flash drive! Is it possible?

    If there isn't, They need to start off with a simple emu! Ex: Nes or Snes! Is there any way for me to get people to figure out the specs and stuff for this?

    Get a cheap Nintendo Wii and that solves your problem.

    Hmm. This is a good idea. Some smart TV's run off Ubuntu. Maybe that could emulate NES.

    Some smart TV's have PS2's built in internally. You could probably run emulators from that.

    Some TVs work with a fairly locked down version of linux, some people sought to gain root access and have done some interesting things though homebrew for them of the high end emulator persuasion is a different matter. If the browser is up to a bit you might get away with some of the javascript/html5/webgl stuff though most browsers I have seen on such TVs is barely enough to load static HTML (probably still better than Wii or PS3 mind you).
    Coming at it the "proper" way though they are not so locked down as the likes of apple but not quite as free as the likes of straight android so expecting fully formed emulators or trying your hand at porting one I do not expect to come to much.

    As others said though get a wii, get an original xbox, get a PC (refurb half nice core2's go for not a lot these days and do everything up to the PS2 and they can do some of the PS2 as well) or possibly grab an android tablet (or other android device) or PSP with video out as it will be far better in the long run.

    I have an original xbox that I don't really use. Don't you use a copy of Splinter Cell or something to soft mod it?
