Internet TV patent : Comment 11 of 62ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 3 (Neko):
> Show me an STB solution currently that has an internet-linked EPG.

ATI's Media Center was around and I was trying to use it before this patent was filed (Windows crashed to much though), Home Media Networks Ltd.'s Showshifter was around before this patent was filed and heck, the date on my second license purchase (upgraded to "DIVX pro" version) is dated September 29, 2002, my original Showshifter invoice is dated September 7, 2002. I'd used ATI's software for at least 6 months before that (long enough to go through 2 computers). If you look at MythTV's "old news", they mention using xmltv for program guide information on May 19, 2002. All three of these use the internet to download their program guide data.

Many people are using these in HTPC setups that I myself equate to home-brew set top boxes.

Also, if that's not good enough for you, ReplayTV requires a broadband connection, and that's a commercial set-top box. http://www.epinions.com/content_3271663748 talks about Tivo over broadband dated May 03 2003: "Broadband connectivity via the USB port. By hooking up either a wired or wireless USB network adapter, you can connect your Tivo to your home network and share your broadband connection. This eliminates the need to hook your Tivo up to a phone line." And what about Microsoft's UltimateTV DVR? With it also being a WebTV, why wouldn't it use dialup ISP internet access to guide data?
