What is an EPG?
An Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is a software application that provides a list of television programs that are scheduled to be broadcast on various channels. The EPG allows users to view the current and upcoming programs for a particular channel, as well as browse through the schedule for the next few days. It typically includes information about the title, start and end times, and a brief description of each program. EPGs are often available on television receivers, set-top boxes, and other devices that are capable of receiving and displaying television programming. They can also be accessed through online platforms, such as websites and apps, or through smart TVs and other internet-connected devices. EPGs are designed to help users find and watch the programming that they are interested in, and to provide them with a convenient way to browse and schedule their viewing.
What is EPG time-shift?
EPG time shift refers to the ability to pause, rewind, or fast-forward through a program that is currently being displayed on an Electronic Program Guide (EPG). This feature is often available on devices that have a built-in EPG, such as television receivers, set-top boxes, and other devices that are capable of receiving and displaying television programming.
To use EPG time shift, you will typically need to press a button on your remote control or device to access the EPG, and then use the pause, rewind, or fast-forward buttons to control the playback of the program. For example, you might use the pause button to pause the program if you need to take a break, or the rewind button to go back and watch a scene that you missed. EPG time shift can be a useful feature for viewers who want to watch a program at their own pace, or who need to pause the program for any reason. It is also often used to skip commercials or other content that is not of interest to the viewer.
