Abstract

When using standard televisions, the only way to record a specific program is with a VCR. The same applies while leaving a televised program for a few minutes. There should be an instant replay button on the remote control in order to record a certain amount of the televised program. Then, a data buffer inside the television would be used to hold at least five minutes of recording time. So, a person leaving the television for only a few minutes can still record the program and view it during a commercial break or at a later time,
