Tools for Timeshifting
Make use of your TV
This is the directly related to the current focus of some of our work.
Note: Timeshifting is defined (in the UK), along the lines of as being you recording something at your home off the TV for you to watch (probably once) at a more convenient time. One of the spin offs from some existing internal work will be that it provides a number of tools that make timeshifting easier. Please note, this page won't contain any legal advice, and these tools are only provided for legal timeshifting! If you've any doubt what these terms mean, or think you might get it wrong, please consult a lawyer ! If you're located in a country where timeshifting isn't protected by law, don't use these tools.
