Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANAGING SERIES RECORDINGS AS A FUNCTION OF AVAILABLE STORAGE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION D'ENREGISTREMENTS EN FONCTION D'UN ESPACE DE STOCKAGE DISPONIBLE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods are presented for modifying scheduled storage of a series as a function of available storage. For example, a media guidance application (e.g., executed on a set- top box) monitors both the viewing progress of previously stored episodes of the series as well as the amount of available storage remaining on a storage device. The media guidance application then calculates, by inputting the current amount of available storage (e.g., 20% available) into a function of available storage, a threshold viewing progress (e.g., 50%). The media guidance application then determines from the viewing progress of the user through the episodes of the series whether the user has met the calculated threshold viewing progress (e.g., the user has watched 50% of the stored episodes). If the threshold viewing progress is not met, then the media guidance application modifies the series recording instruction (e.g., cancels the series recording).

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de modifier l'espace de stockage programmé d'une série en fonction de l'espace de stockage disponible. Par exemple, une application de support multimédia (p. ex., exécutée sur un boîtier décodeur) surveille à la fois la progression de visualisation des épisodes précédemment stockés de la série ainsi que la quantité d'espace de stockage disponible restante sur un dispositif de stockage. L'application de support multimédia calcule ensuite une progression de visualisation de seuil (par exemple, 50%) en entrant la quantité actuelle d'espace de stockage disponible (par exemple, 20% disponible) dans une fonction d'espace de stockage disponible. Ensuite, l'application de support multimédia détermine à partir de la progression de visualisation des épisodes de la série par l'utilisateur si l'utilisateur a atteint la progression de visualisation de seuil calculée (par exemple, l'utilisateur a regardé 50% des épisodes stockés). Si la progression de visualisation de seuil n'est pas satisfaite, l'application de support multimédia modifie l'instruction d'enregistrement de la série (par exemple, annule l'enregistrement de la série).
