One a side note: How about entering keywords that would turn your TV on (or unmute it) everytime something of interest came on? That would be cool.

Re: beardguy

Yes, if you had specific interest areas, such as finance. But for a broader real news use, you'd had to know interesting stories before they arose to know keywords for it.

You don't need to have it on to get the data you need.

Does this only work for the channel you are on or could it work for the raw feed of all the channels you subscribe to?

If so you could turn it round and have it look for certain keywords of interest and change channels when it arrives.

"...he hacked his TV signal and decoded the closed-captioning transmission track."
He didn't enabled the CC at all, prior to the signal reaching the TV the little aparatus decodes the signal's CC "track", when certain words appear it send a signal to the remote controler whitch actives the mute.

[citation][nom]retrig[/nom]I think the real shocker of this article is that people actually still watch the news on TV.[/citation]

Watching local news here will always be better than trying to read the local paper. It's a minefield of typos, misspellings, and continuations on other pages completely disappearing =/

Back when I had my all-in-wonder pro card, it had software that would do exactly that. You put in some keywords and it would flip to those stations when they came up.

Why in the world would somebody look for a commercial station not wanting to see commercial content???? change it to PBS, better, easier and cheaper hack, and for the office public radio any one?....
