  • Patent number: 9848232
    Abstract: Various arrangements for acquiring network configuration data are presented. In response to a television receiver being booted, the television receiver may determine if it can communicate with a service provider's server. If so, the television receiver may request network configuration data from the television programming broadcast network configuration server via a network interface. The television receiver may receive the network configuration data from the television programming broadcast network configuration server via the network interface. Based on the network configuration data, the television receiver may process television programming data received via the tuner.

  • Patent number: 9805758
    Abstract: A DVD navigator based on a vehicle-mounted terminal is disclosed. The DVD navigator includes: a menu panel module, configured to generate a first level in response to reception of an unload instruction; and a quick-unload module, configured to acquire the first level in a sleep state of the DVD navigator and process the first level to generate a second level and a pulse signal so as to control the DVD navigator to quickly unload a disc according to the second level in the sleep state. By the aforesaid way, the present disclosure can effectively reduce the unload time of the DVD navigator by controlling the DVD navigator to quickly unload a disc in the sleep state after receiving the unload instruction.

  • Patent number: 9626934
    Abstract: The present invention has a technical objective of providing a distinctive display format for machine-readable dot patterns which does not harm the aesthetics of images displayed on a display device. The dot pattern is made machine readable by providing the periphery of dots with a contrast control region and/or an anti-aliasing region which are distinguishable from the surrounding image. Thus enabled is the embedding of the two-dimensional codes which cannot be recognized by audiences yet machine readable on video or images on the screen of a display device. An audience can easily acquire information defined by the dot patterns using a digital camera, a video camera, a portable telephone camera, a web camera, or the like to image the screen of the display device or to capture the screen as data.

  • Patent number: RE40606
    Abstract: In an effective display area, an additional information recognizing part 203 recognizes a standard of a broadcast wave, refers to a ROM 212 and selects a target value, and provides an internal clock of a video data reading part 205 and an internal clock of an OSD data reading part 206 with the target value. At a retrace internal, on the other hand, the additional information recognizing part 203 notifies an additional information synthetic position deciding part 210 of the standard of the broadcast wave. The additional information synthetic position deciding part 210 selects from a ROM 211 a target value for reading the additional information applicable to the notified standard, and outputs the target value to an additional information reading parts 207. When the standard of the broadcast wave is changed, target values corresponding to the changes are responsively selected from the ROM 212 and the ROM 211.
