The patent covers a novel system and method for presenting media content and associated media information to a user via an enhanced personal video recorder (e-PVR) computing device, the method comprising:
a. encrypting the media content by an encryption/decryption server prior to distribution to said user so that said media content is decrypted using a program key;
b. encrypting the program key using a local hardware identifier available on a first digital system and creating local decryption information that is used with the local hardware identifier to decrypt the encrypted program key;
c. storing the encrypted program key and decryption information in the media content by an encryption/decryption server or a storage device comprised in an e-PVR;
d. transferring said media content to a second digital system through a network when presentation of the media content is requested by said user;
e. decrypting said program key only when local hardware identifiers are the same on said first digital system and said second digital system;
f. segmenting the media content into sections and storing section delineation
information as section flags in media information by the e-PVR ;
g. storing additional information related to sections if available by a General purpose server, as section information, storing at least the section information as part of media information with media content in a media package;
h. transferring the media package to an e-PVR through a network interface and storing it as stored media package using a storage device on the e-PVR;
i. determining, by a processor, that a user has requested presentation of the media content and identifying the user to whom the media content is to be presented;
j. selecting a first section as a section, by a processor, that is to be presented;
k. using portions of e-PVR information including at least a user preferences/
related to the user, in conjunction with section information, to determine if the
section is to be presented, by a processor;
l. presenting the section using a presentation device if it is determined that the section is to be presented, by a processor;
m. identifying a next section that is to be presented using a presentation device;
n. repeating the selecting, presenting, and identifying steps for the next section and each subsequent section of media content, by a processor;
o. determining, by a processor, that the last section has been presented on the presentation device; and
p. ending of the presentation on the presentation device.
