Who knows?

I doubt that *any* Smart TV is the same as another one, so maybe someone had some success on - say - a LG and had not any with -still say - a Samsung, and this is by brand, let alone by exact model.

LG ones might be running WebOStv.

Samsung up to a certain date had a "hackable" or however "accesible" Linux based OS, AFAIK from a certain date onwards access was closed up or however tightened.

@jaclaz thanks for the response. I've been reading the research on the Samsung Smart TV Acquisition.

Was looking specifically for a Vizio but seems that information is far and few between. 

I know the Vizio's had the scandal with the ACR data and selling it. Curious as to if that data is accessible or not or if there is anyway to get user data off a Smart TV in general. I'm aware of th eMMC chip but not looking to take that route.

Maybe ask TeelTech about MD-Next : AP-Hancom-Next https://www.teeltech.com/mobile-device-forensic-tools/hancom/

It would be complete pointless selling a product if it does not do what is claimed:

"MD-Next

Data extraction software for Smartphone, Feature phone, Drone, Smart TV, Wearable, IoT device, USIM card, SD memory card, JTAG board, and Chip-off memory.

MD-NEXT is the forensic software for the data extraction of diverse mobile and digital device. It supports physical and logical extraction methods for Android, iOS, Windows OS, Tizen OS, and other mobile OS."

Yep, but again a specific model might have an exploitable bug, then the one before and the one after have it not.

only as an example (no exact model specified):
https://www.techspot.com/news/68958-how-hacked-smart-tv-bed-command-injection.html

there could be command injection possibilities, otherwise you have to go via eMMC route.

Short of that the only way in theory is to monitor the TV for internet connection and reverse engineer the connection and payload (good luck), some Vizio's could be updated via USB, though right now there are issues with the site, this is google cache:

The file is downloadable (around 160 MB):

That is not a "claim" it is only some generic, pointless and vague (besides short) marketing blurb (on a re-seller site).

Maybe one should go here:

http://www.hancomgmd.com/product/mobile-forensic-software/#md_next

and download the brochure (122 MB), but it seems like it has very little to do with Smart TV's.

BTW, if I were the King, anyone making a 122 MB .pdf would be processed for a criminal offence, and - since the .pdf file name is "product-brochure" - without any mitigating circumstances applicable.
