Example for iWedia's TV software stack (aka Teatro 3.5) integration with Google's TV Input Framework (TIF) on Android based TV/STB

This example is designed to show how to use some basic functionalists of iWedia's Android4TV API to implement TV Input Service for Android based TV/STB device. It provides the content that comes from live broadcast over-the-air stream data provided by DVB Tuner.

Introduction

This example features following TV functionalities:

  • Channels setup (scan)
  • TV and radio services
  • Electronic Programming Guide (services and programs)
  • Parental control
  • Audio and subtitle tracks switching

Example provides TV content which is consumed and presented by TIF compliant TV application. Note that this example doesn’t provide any UI/UX (except for services setup) for video playback or content browsing. That is under responsibility of TV application provided by Android TV platform.

Pre-requisites

  • Android SDK 5.0 (API level 21), or greater
  • Android4TV compliant platform
  • TIF compliant TV application
