ADVANCED SCHEDULER SERVICE
The commercial set-top boxes on the market today are often very simple when it comes to DVR functionality, i.e. recording and playback of programs.
One of the reasons for this simplicity is the lack of good integration with Electronic Program Data, EPG. That often makes the system hard to use when it comes to functionality like recording of series and conflict resolution.
On the commercial market, the American TiVo can be seen as a role model in this area. On the open source side, there are also a couple of very good solutions like MythTV which is very advanced when it comes to functionality, but lacks in areas like user friendliness.
In order to give our customers a more advanced DVR functionality without them having to invent the wheel every time, we want to develop a number of platform services in KreaTV that brings channel tables, EPG, scheduling and recording tightly together.
The project has three main goals:
1. Develop prototypes for the new service to show a proof of concept.
2. Investigate the possibility to do conflict resolution and handling between different recordings in a new scheduling and recording service.
3. Investigate different possibilities to do series and episode detection in a generic way with different kinds of electronic program data.
