Blogging on pfxteam

Hi all-

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted to this blog.  That’s because I’ve been spending all of my blogging time on the Parallel Extensions team blog, which you can find at At some point I may resume blogging here, but for now, see you there. 🙂

    Hello…I was reading some of your stuff on the Media Center closed caption work you did.  I was wondering if you ever swung back to that with the newer ATSC and HD streams?

    I have Windows 7 ultimate and am interested in writing a plugin (or something) that can parse the CC streams real-time and filter profanity much like a TV Guardian device would.

    If you could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it…thanks!

    I need more documents about Tpl.Dataflow and some "Real Life" examples (see sample scenario below).

    I already read the "Introduction to TPL Dataflow" and watched the "Stephen Toub: Inside TPL Dataflow" on Channel 9.

    I need a more in depth material, please.

    Is there a book about this?

    Is it updated for ,NET 4.5.1?

    Thank you very much for your help in advance.
