Abstract

See full text

A program recording system is provided to allow a user of an interactive viewing system to record a preselected program. The interactive viewing system includes at least one program guide that allows user selection of a program for recording. In response to the user selection, the system sets a record tag that is associated with the selected program and identifies the selected program for recording. The record tag is monitored and, at the appropriate time, prompts the system to control the recording of the selected program.
