I would like to make this group aware of a proposal made to the W3C by CableLabs, on behalf of its cable operator members, regarding cable operators' requirements for home network access from HTML5. This proposal took the form of a bug entered with the HTML5 WG (http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11326). This proposal suggests an implementation of an API for access to UPnP home network functions and determining user agent protocol and media format capabilities.

It appears this topic is of interest to the Web for TV group based on the summary of the W3C Web on TV Workshop held last September. I am interested in feedback from this group regarding the requirements and suggested approach.

Regards,

Bob Lund
