The Personal TV Channel concept, still in an early stage of research, will record all TV programmes of interest in separate virtual channels (news channel, TV-series channels, movie channels) based on your preferences. The concept has been well received and this report investigates the technical issues and possibilities of creating Personal TV Channels. The development was done mostly as stand alone applications but also by extending to the open-source Linux PVR software MythTV. The experimental results using video ngerprint techniques shows a high accuracy for nding the starting points for TV-series and news broadcasts. The developed visualisation tool provides a clear output of the broadcast segmentation. The segmentation and matching of commercials outputs extensive commercial statistics and makes it possible to track the broadcast of specic commercials. Finally conclusions and future work are presented.
