TimeshiftProperties.getNetworkInterface(true) is returning null when service is presenting with TSB attached.

Hi,
As per the java doc and Spec the API TimeShiftProperties.getNetworkInterface(true) should return a special network interface which should not be part of <u><font face="Courier New" color="#0000ff">NetworkInterfaceManager.getNetworkInterfaces()</font></u>, if the presenting service is recorded or TSB enabled.
The current implementation of RI returning null for the special networkinterface.
Is null is a valid special NI in this case since it's not part of the <u><font face="Courier New" color="#0000ff">NetworkInterfaceManager.getNetworkInterfaces()</font></u>? or it's in complete implementation in RI ?
Can any one clarify this.

It's incomplete implementation in the RI.
As per the release notes, the RI doesn't currently provide time-shifted application support, as described in GEM DVR (ETSI TS 102 817) - including time-shifted section delivery (which is enabled via TimeShiftProperties.getNetworkInterface(true)).

Is there any plan to support this in future?

It is a low-priority item in our work backlog.
