Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR REPRODUCING PROGRAMS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE REPRODUCTION DE PROGRAMMES
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to an apparatus for reproducing programs, comprising storage means for storing a plurality of stored programs, for example, a television receiver (1-9) comprising or controlling a video recorder (17). The apparatus comprises scheduling means (16) for composing a personal reproduction schedule of a subset of said plurality of stored programs, in accordance with a user profile. If the apparatus is also capable of receiving broadcast programs, the scheduling means (16) are adapted to include said broadcast programs in the reproduction schedule. A user-selectable virtual channel may be provided for easy inspection and execution of the reproduction schedule.

Cette invention a trait à un dispositif permettant de reproduire des programmes, lequel dispositif comprend un système de stockage destiné à stoker plusieurs programmes mémorisés, un récepteur de télévision (1-9) par exemple, pourvu d'un enregistreur vidéo (17) ou commandant celui-ci. Ce dispositif comprend également un ordonnanceur (16) servant à établir une planification personnelle de reproduction d'un sous-ensemble de la pluralité de programmes mémorisés, cette planification étant personnalisée d'après un profil d'utilisateur. Si ce dispositif est, de surcroît, capable de recevoir des programmes d'émission, l'ordonnanceur (16) est alors configuré pour les incorporer à la planification de reproduction. Le dispositif peut comporter un canal virtuel sélectionné par l'utilisateur et permettant un examen facile de la planification de reproduction ainsi que son exécution.
