Now... "smart" to me impies the following:

Autosensing when a device is plugged in to a port (I have one TV that does that and another that doesn't)

Will send a "turn on" signal and HDMI selection to the TV when a connected device is powered up and has something to deliver (I've got a Pana BD player that does that when connected to an older Sony LCD TV, put a disc in, close when the disc starts playing, it turns on the TV and switches it to the correct HDMI input via a signal to the TV, it's AWESOME!)
