myTV: a practical implementation of TV-Anytime on DVB and the Internet
The technical goal of the myTV project is to marry TV-Anytime standards, local hard disk storage, DVB transmissions, DVB-MHP set-top boxes and the internet. This paper gives a view of the myTV implementation of the ideas and specifications of the TV-Anytime Forum. The paper includes descriptions of technical solutions for carriage of TV-Anytime data over DVB and the internet, the two separate myTV box implementations, the data services required to enable selection and acquisition of content and the system issues in implementing these standards. The applications written to utilise these services and demonstrate interoperability are then briefly described.
