Hi Bin,

This is greeting from Mozilla and we'd like to let you know we've been
cooperating with our partners to work out an initiative version of our
own TV Manager API:


, which seems to be matching the work scope of this group. You can also
find it on the GitHub about our previous discussions on the API design:


In short, this API spec is aimed to manage some general TV behaviours,
including scanning channel, switching channel and controlling tuners.
Actually, this API is not pretty much mature and is not yet supervised
by any existing W3C working groups. 

Some of us are interested in this group and the following Mozillians
hope to be copied in this thread in the future:

  "Marco Chen" <mchen@mozilla.com>
  "Gina Yeh" <gyeh@mozilla.com>
  "Evelyn Hung" <ehung@mozilla.com>
  "Gary Chen" <gchen@mozilla.com>
  "Gene Lian" <clian@mozilla.com>

One personal thought about the name of this group. Based on the work
scope, it seems to me the API is not only related to the channel stuff,
but also some general TV functionalities. How about naming it as:

  "TV Manager API" or
  "TV Control API"

Looking forward to cooperating with you guys!
