  • Patent number: 6724440
    Abstract: A tuner for receiving a video broadcast signal comprises commendable circuits (6, 7, 8, 17) to select a tuned frequency, the tuner comprising a bus interface (21) receiving data bytes and among those data bytes, bytes representing a divider ratio N, and address bytes. Bytes received by the bus interface (21) are processed through a N divider comparator (23) comparing the value of divider ratio N received from the bus interface (21) to values stored in a register (24), the comparator (23) outputting address bytes and data bytes to be sent to the commendable circuit (6, 7, 8, 17) of the tuner to select a band and a tuned frequency. The tuner may be implemented on a chassis of a receiver without modification of an existing software included with a microprocessor of the chassis. The values stored in the register (24) are customized values of the tuner.

  • Patent number: 6404309
    Abstract: A shielded modular tuner is horizontally mounted onto a chassis printed circuit board and is provided, through an aperture in the shield, with lead connections from the edge of the tuner printed circuit board to the chassis printed circuit board, for power supply, control signals, outputting a processed signal, etc. The RF signal is coupled to the tuner via a conductive pin/lead extending from an RF signal conducting path on the chassis printed circuit board, passing through a second aperture in the shield, directly to the point on the tuner printed circuit board where the signal is to be inputted for tuner processing. In this way, the RF signal is injected directly into the tuner precisely where it is needed without being led along a longer and possibly meandering path from the edge of the tuner printed circuit board, and without a shielded coaxial cable and accompanying connectors.
