  • Publication number: 20160198227
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate the detection of a closed caption standard and corresponding extraction of closed caption data according to the detected closed caption standard. A set-top box (STB) may receive content from multiple different networks and/or service providers, and closed caption data may be formatted differently in content received from the various networks and/or service providers. The STB may identify a relevant standard with which to process closed caption data in a received content stream based upon an identification of the network and/or provider from which the content stream is received, and the STB may extract and render closed caption data using a process associated with the identified network and/or provider.

  • Publication number: 20160198216
    Abstract: A system is provided for providing a trickplay operation using a digital video recorder (DVR) when the video includes Broadcom Transport Packets (BTPs) designed for MPEG-2, but in an MPEG-4 video steam. In a first embodiment, to enable trickplay to function properly with MPEG-4 video, the BTP descriptors included with each group of data frames are disabled so that a single descriptor provided without BTPs that would otherwise be provided in MPEG-4 is all that remains. In a second embodiment, the 5 descriptors for MPEG-4 are combined into a single descriptor. In a third embodiment, the pace of decoding of the MPEG-4 descriptors is increased so that the speed of encoding all the 5 descriptors is comparable to the pace of decoding a single MPEG-2 descriptor.

  • Patent number: 9319446
    Abstract: A method and receiving device are provided that determine a synchronization byte in a plurality of transport stream packets, wherein the synchronization byte has a predetermined synchronization value. The method/receiving device receives, via a receiver, a portion of a first transport stream packet of the plurality of transport stream packets; detects, starting from the beginning of the portion of a first transport stream packet, a continuous four byte pattern that does not include the predetermined synchronization value; detects a first occurrence of a byte having the predetermined synchronization value; detects a subsequent byte separated from the first occurrence by a predetermined byte length; determines a byte value of the subsequent byte; and validates that the first occurrence is the synchronization byte based on a comparison of the byte value and the predetermined synchronization value.

  • Publication number: 20160105715
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to monitor for and alert the occurrence of pre-failure indicators at a set-top box (STB) disk. Results of self-monitoring tests, short tests, and maximum/minimum performance tests may be used to identify the potential for a STB disk failure. Moreover, critical error events at the STB may be logged, and the health of the STB disk may be determined based on the logged critical error events. Test results and critical error event logs may be used to predict an impending failure of a STB disk, and a notification may be output to a user or technician indicating the potential need to replace the STB or STB disk.

  • Publication number: 20150311461
    Abstract: Arrays containing carbon nanostructure-oxide-metal diodes, such as carbon nanotube (CNT)-oxide-metal diodes and methods of making and using thereof are described herein. In some embodiments, the arrays contain vertically aligned carbon nanostructures, such as multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) coated with a conformal coating of a dielectric layer, such as a metal oxide. The tips of the carbon nano-structures are coated with a low work function metal, such as a calcium or aluminum to form a nanostructure-oxide-metal interface at the tips. The arrays can be used as rectenna at frequencies up to about 40 petahertz because of their intrinsically low capacitance. The arrays described herein produce high asymmetry and non-linearity at low turn on voltages down to 0.3 V and large current densities up to about 7,800 mA/cm2 and a rectification ratio of at least about 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, or 60.

  • Publication number: 20140227477
    Abstract: Carbon nanotube (CNT) forests or sheets coated and/or bonded at room temperature with one or more coatings were measured to produce thermal resistances that are on par with conventional metallic solders. These results were achieved by reducing the high contact resistance at CNT tips and/or sidewalls, which has encumbered the development of high-performance thermal interface materials based on CNTs. Resistances as low as 4.9±0.3 mm2-K/W were achieved for the entire polymer-coated CNT interface structure.
