EPG
« Posted 2005-03-18 13:56:11 »

Hi!

I am one of the Coders of a Java-EPG called "TV-Browser".

(Ok, at the moment we only have German Channels and two Beta-Plugin for adding US-Channels via zap2it and a few international Channels via swedb, but that's not important for my Question Wink ).

I want to create a Plugin that creates a EPG like M$ or most Digital TV-Receivers have. This is Freevo's Design ... I think of creating something similar...

For this I need some help from you guys Wink.

What would you choose and why? Pure Java2d or would you prefere a OpenGL-Lib? Remember that this stuff should run on a Media-PC in the Living-Room...

Do you have some nice Effect-Ideas? Any help is welcome !

Depends if you're targetting a platform. If you happen to be targeting windows then Java2D will probably do you ok.

Otherwise, OpenGL.

You should really try to get to talk to Cas, he's done these things for real I believe. (Infact, isn't that where LWJGL came from?)
