Hi Mark,

LGE has webOS TV in which browser for TV is embedded. We have been using the
W3C test runner with web-platform-tests, though not frequently not recently,
but it used to work well so far. Basically, it makes no difference between
PC and TV as long as we don't consider some TV-specific patches.

In a smart TV environment, we have a couple of needs for the purpose of
efficiently using the test runner as follows:

* Remote control for the test runner
  - TV makers commonly execute the test runner for the TV browser using PC
(remote execution).
  - We could consider the test runner to be aligned with the remote test
(e.g. Web Driver).

* Distributed execution for the test runner
  - The test runner spends a lot of time, esp. if the test is for the
browser in TV with low performance.
  - We could consider the test runner to be executed in several same target
devices at the same time.
  - In other words, the test cases are divided and assigned to each target
devices for parallel processing.

Thanks,
Hyojin

PS. The needs above are about just for issues of test tools, but not for
standards.

Has anyone run the W3C test runner on an embedded browser running in a smart
TV recently? Does anyone know if this currently works or if changes would be
needed to make the test runner work in a smart TV environment?

Thanks,
mav
