New Apple Patent Shows TV-Like Navigation And DVR Capabilities

Apple has a new patent that may bring some old rumors back. The newly approved patent points to possibilities of an Apple TV set or a sophisticated set top box …

Patently Apple made the discover of a new patent that includes the capability to browse channels and even record shows like a traditional DVR box. Obviously recording shows on the standard Apple TV is out of the question unless cloud space is added into the equation, but this could lead to a workable TV solution.

Patently Apple reports:

Apple has received a Granted Patent relating to a video device which displays video in one of a plurality of contexts in an onscreen display area. In response to the menu command, the video device generates a menu overlay within the onscreen display area while maintaining the video within the menu overlay, and generates within the menu overlay a context icon based on the selected context.

The patent found here, was actually submitted in 2006! It was recently approved and I’m sure will spark more “iTV” rumors in the future. It’s been pretty quite in the Apple TV rumor mill lately, so maybe this will wake up old habits.
