Web and WAP based scheduler for TV recording

Posted on 15 March 2005 by

Did you ever go on a trip and forgot to program your PVR ? You can now go to the nearest internet cafe or use your mobile phone and schedule any program you want to record.

The program that makes it all happen is called WebShifter and you can download the latest version at http://www.iwg.nl/webshifter
WebShifter was originally for ShowShifter (hence the name WebShifter), but a beta version was released today with support for command-line based TV recording software. Support for other recording software will be added soon.

WebShifter is not only a scheduler, it also has an integrated XMLtv based TV guide and a file browser that allows you to download or delete your recordings.
WebShifter has a 30-day trial period, but you can request free extended trial keys from the author as long as the program is still in the beta stage.
