Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANAGING SERIES RECORDINGS AS A FUNCTION OF AVAILABLE STORAGE
(ZH) 根据可用存储管理系列剧记录的系统和方法
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) monitorsboth 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).

提出了用于根据可用存储来修改系列剧的调度存储的系统和方法。例如,(例如,在机顶盒上执行的)媒体指南应用监视先前存储的系列剧的剧集的观看进度以及存储设备上剩余的可用存储量。然后,媒体指南应用通过将当前可用存储量(例如,20%可用)输入到可用存储的函数中来计算阈值观看进度(例如,50%)。然后,媒体指南应用根据用户观看系列剧的剧集的进度确定用户是否已经满足计算出的阈值观看进度(例如,用户已经观看存储的剧集的50%)。如果不满足阈值观看进度,则媒体指南应用修改系列剧记录指令(例如,取消系列剧记录)。
