  • Patent number: 4031474
    Abstract: The specification discloses various embodiments of solid state television channel selection systems. The systems provide sequential and/or parallel access of television channels by operation of simple pushbutton or sense touch switches on the control panel of the television set, as well as sequential or parallel access of the channels through operation of remote control units. The selected television channel may be displayed in the parallel access mode by illuminating the actuated parallel access switch, or by the utilization of seven segment numerical displays with either the sequential or parallel access modes.
