The present invention discloses a system for dynamically defining
individual channel behavior from a variety of tuner sources within an
integrated PC/TV apparatus. The system includes a channel server database
including a master channel list of all channels provided by various tuner
sources within a PC/TV apparatus. Each channel within the database list
includes various parameters and data associated therewith defining the
behavior of the channel independently of other channels within a listing.
A number of channels server functionalities enable a user to dynamically
access and alter the channel parameters and data to tailor channel
behavior to a user's personal preferences.
