Abstract

See full text

A system and method for e-mail control of a digital personal video stream manager (102), for example, to program a video recording device (114). The system includes a personal computer (110) having an e-mail client (1802) and equipping the e-mail client with a DPVSM control plug in (1800). The DPVSM control plug in (1800) is adapted to identify a special DPVSM control e-mail (1900) which is then translated by the DPVSM control program (312). The digital personal video stream manager (102) then activates at the appropriate time to record the program.
