  • Publication number: 20020101538
    Abstract: A user presets in a PC information, such as the user's favorite program categories, artist names, as key information. A receiver receives a digital radio broadcast in which additional information is multiplexed with audio information. The received additional information is transferred to the PC via communications means. The PC determines whether the preset key information is included in the additional information. If the key information is included, the additional information is stored in a storage device as an additional information file. Alternatively, the additional information is transmitted on a communications network with an ID of an information processing terminal at a user-specified destination attached thereto. The arrangement may be such that when a connection is established between the receiver and the PC via the communications means, the key information is transmitted from the PC to the receiver so that additional information can be selected on the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20020102954
    Abstract: A receiver for receiving a digital radio broadcast in which additional information is multiplexed with audio information includes a memory for storing the additional information, an LCD, and a bookmark button. When the bookmark button is depressed during reception of a program, a control unit stores additional information of the program in the memory as bookmark data. The bookmark data stored in the memory is displayed on the LCD. When data, for example, “Modern Jazz”, is specified as search data, the control unit sequentially searches programs currently being broadcast or programs to be broadcast later, detecting and tuning in to a program which includes the search data in the additional information thereof. Alternatively, the additional information of the detected program is displayed on the LCD, tuning in to the program in accordance with an operation by the user.

  • Patent number: 6389271
    Abstract: Selection of a program in a DAB receiver is facilitated. There are provided a data table 31 containing sets of a service ID and a time data indicating a broadcast time of that program in order of the time as well as a data table 32 containing the service ID in order of receiving frequency of that program. When an operation for selecting a program is performed, it is checked whether or not a data coincident with a service ID of a program of the latest broadcast time among data of the data table 31 is found in the data table 32. As a result of this check, if it is found, a program of that service ID is selected. As a result of the check, if it is not found, the same processing is thereafter repeated to select a program, with a service ID of a program of the next latest broadcast time among data of the data table 31.

  • Patent number: 6057979
    Abstract: A magnetic tape apparatus having a bearer formed so as to be reciprocatable in the front-rear direction between a cassette insertion position and a cassette mount position on a chassis for inserting a tape cassette, and a rotating cam provided on the chassis for driving the bearer through an interlocking mechanism with a clutch. In the magnetic tape apparatus, the clutch is turned off to release the interlocking mechanism between the bearer and the rotating cam when the bearer is advanced from the cassette mount position to the cassette insertion position, while the clutch is turned on to establish the interlock between the bearer and the rotating cam when the bearer is retreated from the cassette insertion position to the cassette mount position.

  • Patent number: 6021018
    Abstract: A loading mechanism in a video cassette deck comprising a cassette moving mechanism 100 for moving a cassette receiving portion 200 between an initial location and a running location. The cassette moving mechanism 100 has a slide arm 120 horizontally slidably attached on one of a pair of wall portions 110 provided on both left and right sides of the cassette receiving portion 200, a driving portion for sliding the slide arm 120, a cassette driving gear 130 which is rotatably supported on the wall portion 110 to which the slide arm 120 is attached and which is connected to the cassette receiving portion 200 through a groove portion 112 formed in the wall portion 110, and a door arm 140 for transmitting the motion of the slide arm 120 to a door. The cassette loading mechanism is designed so that the door is opened before the cassette receiving portion 200 is moved when the cassette receiving portion 200 in the running location is moved into the initial location.

  • Patent number: 5975787
    Abstract: A device for securing a pinch roller support arm to a chassis of a magnetic tape apparatus. In the device, the chassis includes a round hole which is formed such that it extends through the chassis, and a securing part is outsert molded in the chassis in such a manner that the securing part extends through the round hole. After the pinch roller support arm is fitted with a support shaft provided on and projected from the chassis and a projection provided on the pinch roller support arm is fitted into a fitting hole formed in the chassis, by rotating the securing part around the round hole, the securing part is engaged with the projection.
