TV Framework

My latest side project destined to never be complete is a TV framework. I have worked in the VOD industry for some years now as a software engineer working with various in-house frameworks. I dared myself to get at least a skeleton application up and running and to see how far I could take things. If nothing else I will get even more appreciation for how hard these frameworks are to build and use on challenging devices. Hopefully I will have a demo app available soon.
