Flash EPG – Archos scheduler

Since getting my hands on the excellent Archos AV
with its TV recording capabilities, I’m getting around to creating a Flash based EPG. Using data from, I can use this to hopefully create the required text file (DVRTimer.txt) which the AV420 can read for its recording scheduler.

The AV420 can apparently use data from the Yahoo! TV Calendar to create schedules, but as far is I know, it doesn’t work in the UK. Hopefully, if this all works, there might be a nice altenative 😉 – I plan on adding the ability to create schedules from any of the channels.

Bear in mind that this is all unfinished, unofficial work in progress. 😉

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
