On this Page we collect ideas for students projects for the google summer of code. Feel free to contribute to this page.
Each of the ideas needs java knowledge, since the project is written in it.
Recreate Filter GUI
The Filter-Gui should be rewritten. At the moment only people with deep knowledge about computers are able to add new Filters. The new Gui should it make possible for everyone to add filters.
Enhance Firewall detection
At the moment the firewall detection is not very good. At the beginning the tvbrowser tries to connect to the internet. If this fails a dialog box without hints is shows. This should be enhanced to show the most common problems with the common firewalls (e.g. Norton, GData)
If only one server-group fails, a very cryptic message is shown. It looks more like a defect on the user side than a defect on the server side.
Preselected channels for setup
If you start the tvbrowser for the first time, you have to select all channels for yourselfs. It should be possible to select a country and get a list of channels preconfigured for that specific country.
Add new way to display the program table
The program table is shown like a german tv guide. US citicens are not used to that style. The program table should be able to rotat 90 degrees.
