[0148] 在上述处理中,多个频率可连同指定区域的信息一起接收,诸如地区名或邮编。 [0148] In the above processing, a plurality of frequencies may be received along with information specified area, such as a name or postal code regions. 如果在相应区域中可接收的广播电台的频率等于所接收频率,则可传送广播电台的名称和频率的呼号。 If the frequency of the broadcasting station can be received in the corresponding region is equal to the reception frequency, and may transmit the name and call sign of the broadcast station frequency. 此外,在该处理中,如果在从终端设备10接收的频率中有不等于可接收广播电台的任一频率的频率,则可传送该区域中可接收的其它广播电台的频率、广播电台名称和呼号的列表。 Further, in this process, if the frequency received from the terminal device 10 is not equal to the reception frequency at any frequency of the radio station, the frequency of the other broadcaster receivable area can transmit, and broadcast station name callsign list.

[0149] 图8是示出整体服务服务器36包括的提供广播电台列表的数据库示例的表格。 [0149] FIG. 8 is a diagram illustrating the overall service server 36 provides the database tables exemplary list of radio stations included.

[0150] 如图8所示,整体服务服务器36具有分别对可接收电波的可接收区域存储传送电波的频率、其广播电台名称和呼号的数据库。 [0150] As shown, the overall service server 36 may each have a frequency of the received radio wave receivable area for storing transmission waves which broadcasting station names and call signs database 8. 因此,当区域被指为搜索关键字时,组合了区域内可接收频率、其广播电台名称及其呼号的信息列表被提取并传送为广播电台列表。 Thus, when the region referred to as the search key, the combination of the reception frequency can area that broadcasting station names and call signs list information is extracted and transmitted as a broadcast station list. 整体服务服务器36还具有将用于指定区域的各个信息项(诸如邮编和地区名)链接到图8 所示数据库上的区域名的数据库。 The overall service server 36 also has individual information items (such as a zip code and area names) linked to the database shown in Figure 8 on the area name database for the specified area.

[0151] 同时,终端设备10具有指示预先存储(预先设置)彼此链接的要接收频率和预设置数、并指示选择和接收等于一个预设置数的一个相应频率的功能。 [0151] Meanwhile, the terminal device 10 has stored in advance indicating (pre-set) to be linked to each other and pre-set the number of receiving frequency, and instructs the selecting and receiving a function equal to a preset number corresponding frequency. 因此,当预先设置接收频率时,终端设备10如上所述利用整体服务服务器36的服务,来预设置终端设备10可接收的广播电台的名称和呼号,它们与接收频率相链接。 Accordingly, when the reception frequency is set in advance, the terminal device 10 described above utilize the services of the overall service server 36, the terminal apparatus 10 to the pre-set radio station names and call signs may be received, and the reception frequency are linked. 推后,逐段设备10可获取和访问相关信息供应商的URL。 After the push, paragraph by paragraph, and access device 10 may acquire URL information suppliers. 因此简便地使用从广播电台服务器32中获取相关信息的服务是可能的。 So easy to use access to relevant information from the radio station 32 server service is possible.

[0152] 然而,终端设备10并不总是通过电波来接收无线电广播。 [0152] However, the terminal device 10 is not always received by radio waves. 例如,有终端设备10通过有线电视的电缆接收无线电广播的情形。 For example, there is the case of the terminal device 10 receives radio broadcast by cable TV cable. 在该情形中,发送无线电广播的频率与传送无线电广播的频率会不同。 In this case, the transmission frequency of the transmission radio broadcast radio may be different. 在另一情形中,可传送并提供在本区域中通常不能接收的远距离广播电台的无线电广播。 In another case, it may be transmitted and typically can not provide a radio broadcast receiver in the remote area radio stations. 在这些情形中,终端设备10不能仅根据区域信息来使频率与呼号链接。 In these cases, the terminal device 10 can not only be link according to the frequency area information and call number.

[0153] 因此当包括在从整体服务服务器36接收的广播电台列表信息中的区域内可接收频率与预先设置频率不相同时,终端设备10在显示装置17上列出并显示广播电台列表信息中的广播电台名称。 [0153] Therefore, when the reception frequency includes previously set in the region received from the service server 36 integrally radio frequency list information are not the same, the terminal device 10 on the display device 17 displays the broadcast station list and list information radio station name. 因而,用户可作从名称中作选择的输入操作,使得预设置可根据区域或接收方法通过准确和简便的操作来实现。 Accordingly, the user can make a choice from the name for the input operation, so that a pre-setting can be achieved by accurate and simple operation or receiving method according to the area.

[0154] 现在将详细描述预设置频率时终端设备10中的处理。 [0154] Now the processing in the terminal device 10 will be described in detail a pre-set frequency. 图9是示出预设置频率时终端设备10中整个处理流程的流程图。 FIG 9 is a flowchart showing the entire processing flow of the terminal device 10 when the preset frequency.

[0155] 在本实施例中,为终端设备10准备了两类预设置方法,S卩,自动预设置和手动预设置。 [0155] In the present embodiment, the terminal device 10 is provided method of pre-prepared two, S Jie, automatic and manual preset preset. 用户可选择和使用任一个。 A user may select and use either one. 在自动预设置中,自动检测(自动-调谐)可接收广播的频率,并对其分配预设置数。 Automatic pre-setting, automatic detection (automatic - tuning) may receive the broadcast frequency, and setting the number of pre-assigned thereto. 此外,存储检测到的自动与广播电台名称和呼号相链接的频率。 In addition, storage detected automatically broadcast station name and call sign linked to frequency. 在手动预设置中,这些处理根据来自用户的操作输入来执行。 In the manual pre-setting, the processing is executed according to an operation input from the user. 来自用户的操作输入基本上通过遥控器40给出。 Operation input from the user through the remote controller 40 is given substantially.

[0156] 在步骤S21,根据用户的操作输入选择预设置方法。 [0156] In step S21, the pre-selected setting method according to an operation input of the user. 如果选择了自动预设置,则流程前进到步骤S22。 If auto presetting selection, the flow proceeds to step S22. 否则,如果选择手动预设置,则流程前进到步骤S26。 Otherwise, if you choose to manually pre-set, the flow advances to step S26.

[0157] 在步骤S22,逐渐更改接收频率以自动检测接收广播的频率。 [0157] In step S22, the reception frequency is gradually changed to automatically detect received broadcast. 然后,检测到的分配了预设置数的频率按序存储。 Then, the detected frequency distribution stored in order of the number of pre-set.

[0158] 在步骤S23,终端设备10传送指定安装了终端设备10的区域的信息,并执行从整体服务服务器36中接收广播电台列表的处理。 [0158] In step S23, the terminal apparatus 10 transmits area specifying information of the terminal device 10 is installed, and performs a process of receiving a broadcast station list from the overall service server 36. 步骤S23的处理将参照图12在后面详细描述。 The processing of step S23 will be described in detail later with reference to FIG. 12.

[0159] 在步骤S24,与那些在步骤S22预设置的频率相同的频率从接收到的广播电台列表中逐一挑出,并且存储与频率链接的广播电台名称和呼号,它们与相应的预设置数相链接。 [0159] In step S24, the frequency is the same as those in step S22 picked one by one from a preset list of broadcast stations received, and stores the frequency of a broadcasting station name and the link call sign, and their respective pre-set number of linked.

[0160] 在步骤S25,确定广播电台名称和呼号是否已相对于步骤S22中存储的所有预设置数存储。 [0160] In the step S25, the broadcasting station to determine whether the name and call sign with all the pre-set number of steps S22 to store in memory. 如果名称和呼号已相对于全部数字存储,则处理结束。 If the name and call sign had with respect to all of the digital storage, the process ends. 或者,如果有其上存储了除包括在广播电台列表中的频率外的其它频率的任何预设置数,则处理前进到步骤S28,其中通过用户的手动输入执行相对于那些预设置数的预设置。 Alternatively, if there is stored thereon any pre-set number inter frequency comprises an outer frequency broadcast station list is, proceeds to step S28, the process, wherein the manual input user is performed by a preset number of those pre-set with respect to .

[0161] 否则,如果在步骤S21选择手动预设置,则在步骤S26接收频率根据用户的操作改变。 [0161] Otherwise, if in step S21 to select manual pre-setting, in step S26, the reception frequency is changed according to a user's operation. 接收广播的各个频率和分配给各频率的预设置数被存储。 And receiving a broadcast frequency assigned to each of the pre-set number is stored for each frequency.

[0162] 在步骤S27,终端设备10传送指定安装了终端设备10的区域的信息,并执行从整体服务服务器36中接收广播电台列表的处理。 [0162] In the transfer step S27, the terminal device 10 of the terminal device 10 the information region is specified is installed, and executes the process of receiving a broadcast station list from the overall service server 36. 该步骤与步骤S23相同,并将参照图12详细描述。 This step is the same as step S23, the 12 will be described in detail with reference to FIG.

[0163] 在步骤S28,对每个预设置数执行根据用户的操作存储所接收广播电台列表的处理。 [0163] In step S28, the processing performed list of radio stations to store the received user's operation according to pre-set for each number.

[0164] 图10是示出对应于上述步骤S28的通过手动操作预设置广播电台列表的信息的处理流程的流程图。 [0164] FIG. 10 is a flowchart showing the operation corresponding to the pre-set by a manual list of radio stations the information processing flow of step S28.

[0165] 在步骤S31,广播电台名称在显示设备17上列出并显示,以使用户对为存储广播电台名称和呼号的每个预设置数作出选择。 [0165] step S31, the broadcasting station names are listed on the display device 17 and displayed to allow the user to make a selection for each preset number stored in the broadcasting station names and call signs. 在该处理中,从先前步骤S23或S27中或者后面描述的步骤S38中接收的广播电台列表中提取、列出并显示广播电台名称。 In this process, the list of broadcast station from the previous step S23 or step S27 or later described S38, extracts received, and displays the broadcasting station names are listed. 该屏幕还显示指令项,以在不同于列出和显示区域的另一区域内显示广播电台名称的列表。 The screen also displays instruction items, different from the lists to the display list and broadcasting station name display area in another zone. 因而用户被允许选择该项。 Thus the user is allowed to select the item. 此时的屏幕显示示例如后面描述的图11所示。 At this time, an example of screen display as shown in FIG. 11 described later.

[0166] 在步骤S32,通过使用遥控器40的方向键41a和41b以及输入键,从所显示列表中选择并决定广播电台名称。 [0166] In step S32, the remote controller by using a direction key 40 and the input keys 41a and 41b, to select and determine broadcasting station name from the list displayed. 然后,流程前进到步骤S33。 Then, the flow proceeds to step S33.

[0167] 在步骤S33,步骤S32中选择的广播电台名称和相应的呼号从所接收的广播电台列表中提取,并与相应预设置数链接存储。 [0167] selected in step S33, the step S32 and the corresponding broadcasting station name extracted from the call sign of the broadcast station list is received, and the corresponding pre-set number of links is stored.

[0168] 在步骤S34,如果处理未对全部预设置数完成,则流程返回到步骤S31并继续对下一预设置数处理,在该预设置数上尚未存储广播电台名称和呼号。 [0168] In step S34, if the process is not completed for all the pre-set number, the flow returns to step S31 and continues processing the next pre-set number, the pre-set number on a broadcasting station name has not been stored and call sign.

[0169] 在步骤S35,如果未从列出步骤S31中显示的广播电台名称的显示屏中选择广播电台名称,,而是选择了用于请求不同于列示区域的另一区域的广播电台列示的项,则流程前进到步骤S36。 [0169] In step S35, if the selected broadcasting station name of the broadcasting station name display, not shown in the step S31 from the lists ,, but is different from the selected broadcasting station for requesting another region of the column region listed the items shown, the flow proceeds to step S36. 否则,如果未对当前的预设置数执行广播电台名称的预设置,则流程前进到步骤S34。 Otherwise, if you do not perform pre-set radio station name on the current number of pre-set, the flow advances to step S34.

[0170] 在步骤S36,用于选择接收区域的屏幕在显示设备17上显示。 [0170] In step S36, a screen for selecting reception area displayed on the display device 17. 用户通过使用方向键41a和41b以及输入键来选择并确定区域。 And 41b, and the user selects and determines the key input area by using the arrow keys 41a.

[0171] 在步骤S37,指出选定区域的信息被传送给整体服务服务器36,以请求对应于该区域的广播电台列表。 [0171] In the step S37, it pointed out that the information is transmitted to the selected area of ​​the overall service server 36 to request corresponds to a list of radio stations in the region.

[0172] 在步骤S38,接收对应于所请求区域的广播电台列表。 [0172] In step S38, the reception area corresponding to a broadcast station list is requested. 然后,处理返回到步骤S31, 其中接收到的广播电台列表中的广播电台名称被显示为列表,并得到用户的下一操作输入。 Then, the process returns to step S31, the broadcasting station name of the station which broadcasts the received list are displayed as a list, and get the next user's operation input. 如果流程从该处理继续到步骤S35〜S38,则选择并预设置另一区域的任意广播电台的名称和呼号是可能的。 If the flow from the process proceeds to step S35~S38, is selected and an arbitrary preset broadcasting station names and call signs are possible in another region.

[0173] 图11示出列出并显示前面步骤S31的广播电台名称的屏幕显示示例。 [0173] FIG. 11 shows the front of the display lists in step S31 and the screen display example of the name of the broadcasting station.

[0174] 在图11所示屏幕中,选定预设置数和接收频率在显示部分171中显示,且广播电台列表中广播电台的名称在列示部分172中列出并显示。 [0174] In the screen shown in FIG. 11, and set the number of pre-selected receiving frequency is displayed on the display portion 171, and the broadcasting station name of a broadcast station list is listed in the list and display section 172. 在部分172下显示的用于请求另一区域广播电台的列示的指令项173。 In the display portion 172 for requesting another area broadcasting stations listed items 173 instructions. 此外,焦点通过方向键41a和41b移到列表显示部分172中的任一个广播电台名称,并通过输入键来决定广播电台名称。 Further, the focus direction keys 41a and 41b to move to any one of the list display portion 172 of the broadcasting station names and broadcasting station name is determined by the input key. 因而,可预设置广播电台名称及相应呼号。 Thus, the pre-set radio station name and the corresponding call sign. 此外,焦点可移到指令项173且该项得以决定。 In addition, the focus may be moved and the instruction item 173 is determined. 因而,可从整体服务服务器36中获得另一区域的广播电台名称和呼号,且广播电台名称可在相似屏幕上显示。 Thus, available radio station names and call signs from another region in overall service server 36, and the radio station name can be displayed on a screen similar.

[0175] 在所述处理中,在安装了终端设备10的区域中可通过电波接收的广播电台名称及其呼号以列表形式形式,从而用户可从该列表中进行选择。 [0175], may be broadcast by the radio station name, and call sign of the receiver, so that the user can choose from this list, in the process in the region of the terminal apparatus 10 is installed in the form of a list form. 结果,不仅在选择手动预设置时而且在选择自动预设置时,这些类型的信息可通过简单操作与预设置数和频率准确链接地存储。 As a result, not only when manually selected and preset at the automatic preset selection, these types of information can be obtained by a simple operation with the preset number and the frequency accuracy of the link is stored. 因此,即使在无线电广播通过有线电视以不同于通过电波传送频率的频率传送时, 广播电台名称和呼号也能简便并准确地预设置。 Thus, even in a radio broadcast on cable at a different frequency by transmitting a radio wave transmission frequency, and broadcasting station names and call signs can be accurately preset easy.

[0176] 用于请求显示另一区域广播电台的列表的指令项在显示广播电台名称的列示屏幕上提供。 [0176] a request for another region of the display list instructions Radio items listed on a display screen provided in the broadcasting station name. 获取了广播电台名称的相应列表,并进一步列出、显示广播电台名称,并使其可选。 Get a corresponding list of names of radio stations, and further lists, display radio station names, and make it optional. 因而,即使当不可通过电波接收的另一区域的广播通过有线电视等传送时,其广播电台的名称和呼号仍然可简便地预设置。 Accordingly, even when non-transmitted through a broadcast by cable TV, radio receiver of another region, which radio station names and call signs can still be easily preset.

[0177] 通过使用由该类处理预设置的呼号,相应广播电台服务器32的URL从整体服务服务器36中获取。 [0177], URL corresponding broadcast station server 32 acquires from the service server 36 integrally by using the call number of such preset processing. 正在接收的广播电台节目的相关信息可通过访问该URL获得。 Radio program is receiving relevant information can be obtained by visiting the URL. 因此,不管接收广播的形式如何,用于获取通过终端设备10真正接收到的广播电台节目的相关信息的初始设置都可通过简单操作来准确执行。 Thus, regardless of the form of receiving the broadcast, it may be accurately performed for obtaining a simple initial setting operation related information 10 of the real radio programs received by the terminal device.

[0178] 然后,将添加对图9中步骤S23〜S27中广播电台列表处理的补充说明。 [0178] Then, the additional information that the list of radio stations in the processing step in FIG. 9 S23~S27.

[0179] 为了接收广播电台列表,指定区域的信息可被传送给整体访问服务器36,如上所述,它的最基本方法是通过用户操作使得用户输入并传送区域名、邮编、长途代码等。 [0179] In order to receive the broadcast station list, the specified area information may be transmitted to the overall access server 36, as described above, it is essential that the user input operation by a user and transmits the area name, zip code, long distance codes. 然而, 因为终端设备10没有十键、字符输入键盘等,对该类信息的输入操作最好尽可能地简化, 或者最好消除输入操作的必要性。 However, because the terminal device 10 is not ten key, a character input keyboard or the like, the input operation type information is preferably as simple as possible, or preferably eliminate the need for an input operation.

[0180] 另一方面,为了从广播电台服务器32接收提供涉及节目和歌曲(现在播送)的相关信息的服务,需要初始登记过程。 [0180] On the other hand, in order to receive from a broadcast station server 32 and provide a song relating to program (now broadcast) related information services, requires an initial registration process. 在本实施例中,该登记过程由整体服务服务器36执行。 In the present embodiment, the entire registration process performed by the service server 36.

[0181] 在登记过程中,在整体服务服务器36中登记标识用户的用户ID和密码,连同诸如用户名字和地址的用户个人信息。 [0181] During the registration process, the overall service server 36 identifies the registered user ID and password, along with the name and address of the user such as personal information. 一个用户使用多个终端设备来接收服务也是可能的。 A plurality of user terminal devices is possible to receive the service. 因此,用户可对每个终端设备登记一个任意名。 Thus, the user can register an arbitrary name for each terminal device. 此外,当用户从终端设备访问整体访问服务器36时并传送呼号时,用户通过告知用户的ID、密码和终端设备名称来验证。 Further, when the user accesses the server to access the entire device 36 and from the terminal when transferring call sign, user ID, password, and the terminal device informs the user names through to verify. 如果用户被确定为有效用户,则用户能获得对应于呼号的广播电台服务器32的URL,并可使用该服务。 If the user is determined as a valid user, the user can obtain the URL corresponding to the call sign of the radio station server 32, and can use the service.

[0182] 因此,指定区域的信息(例如地址、邮编等)包括在为提供相关信息的服务而登记的每个用户的登记信息中。 [0182] Thus, the region designation information (e.g. address, zip code, etc.) included in the registration information of each user to provide service information is registered in. 通过在请求广播电台列表时使用该信息,用户可避免输入操作。 By using the information in the request list of radio stations, the user input operation can be avoided. 例如,这通过在登记处理中将登记信息记录到终端设备来实现。 For example, this is achieved by recording the registration information to the terminal device in the registration process.

[0183] 图12是示出接收广播电台列表的处理流程的流程图。 [0183] FIG. 12 is a flowchart showing a reception processing flow of list of radio stations. 例如,在以下处理中,邮编被用作指定区域的信息。 For example, in the following process, the zip code is used as the information of the specified area.

[0184] 在步骤S41,确定对提供相关信息的服务的登记是否已完成。 [0184] In step S41, the registration of the service provider determines the relevant information has been completed. 该确定基于例如登记信息是否存在于终端设备10的HDD 21中而作出。 This determination is based, for example, the registration information exists in the HDD 21 the terminal device 10 is made. 如果登记信息存在,则流程前进到步骤S42。 If the registration information is present, the flow advances to step S42. 如果登记信息不存在,则流程前进到步骤S43。 If the registration information does not exist, the flow proceeds to step S43.

[0185] 在步骤S42,从存储在终端设备10中的登记信息中提取用户地址中的邮编,并及其传送到整体服务服务器36。 [0185] In step S42, is stored in the registration information extracted from the user terminal device 10 address zip code, and the overall service and transmits to the server 36. 然后,处理流程前进到步骤S45。 Then, the processing flow proceeds to step S45.

[0186] 另一方面,在步骤S43,邮编的输入屏幕在显示设备17上显示。 [0186] On the other hand, in step S43, the zip code input screen is displayed on the display device 17. 此外,在步骤S44, 所输入的邮编被传送给整体服务服务器36,且流程前进到步骤S45。 Furthermore, in step S44, the entered zip code is transmitted to the overall service server 36, and the flow proceeds to step S45.

[0187] 在步骤S45,接收从整体服务服务器36传送的广播电台列表。 [0187] In step S45, the list of radio stations received from the service server 36 integrally transmitted. 所接收的广播电台列表暂时存储在例如RAM 20。 Temporarily storing the list of radio stations, for example, received in RAM 20.

[0188] 因而,如果事先已执行对相关信息提供服务的登记,则输入用于指定区域的信息就没有必要了,因此用户的操作能力可得到改进。 [0188] Thus, if the registration has been performed in advance to provide relevant information and services, the input information for specifying the area is not necessary, so the user's operation capability can be improved. 存储在终端设备中的登记信息在上述处理示例中使用。 Registration information stored in the terminal device used in the above processing example. 然而,整体服务服务器36可从访问服务器以请求广播电台列表的用户的登记信息中提取诸如邮编等的区域信息,并且可传送对应于该请求的广播电台列表。 However, the overall service server 36 may request the user to register the information list of radio stations such as a zip code area information is extracted from the access server or the like, and may transmit the request corresponding to the list of radio stations. 例如在该情形中,当从终端设备访问整体访问服务器36时,用户的终端设备的用户ID、密码和名称根据用户的输入操作来告知。 In this case, for example, when accessing the entire device 36 accessing the server from a terminal, user ID, password, and name of the user to inform the terminal apparatus according to an input operation of the user. [0189] 当描述该处理内容的程序由终端设备10的CPU处理时,如上所述的终端设备10 的处理功能实现。 [0189] When a program describing the processing contents of the CPU 10 by the terminal device, the processing of the terminal device 10 functions as described above to achieve. 或者,类似的程序可由计算机的CPU实现,从而如上所述的处理功能由计算机实现。 Alternatively, a similar program implemented by the CPU of the computer, so that the processing function is implemented by a computer as described above. 描述该处理内容的程序可被记录在终端设备10或计算机宽度的记录媒体上。 Description of the processing contents of the program may be recorded on a recording medium or a computer terminal device 10 width. 该类记录媒体是磁性记录设备、光盘、磁性-光学记录媒体、半导体存储器等。 Such a recording medium is a magnetic recording apparatus, an optical disk, magnetic - optical recording medium, a semiconductor memory. 磁性记录装置可以是HDD、软盘(FD)、⑶-ROM、⑶-R(可记录)/RW(可写)等。 The magnetic recording device may HDD, a flexible disk (FD), ⑶-ROM, ⑶-R (Recordable) / RW (writable) and the like. 磁性-光学记录媒体可以是MO (磁性-光)盘等。 Magnetic - The optical recording medium may be an MO (magnetic - optical) disk and the like.

[0190] 例如,在发行程序的情形中,售卖记录程序的便携式记录媒体,诸如DVD、⑶-ROM 等。 [0190] For example, in the case of release of the program, selling portable recording medium recording the program, such as a DVD, ⑶-ROM and the like. 或者,程序可存储在服务器计算机的存储中,从该服务器中程序可通过网络传送到另一计算机。 Alternatively, the program may be stored in the storage server computer, the program may be transferred from the server to another computer via a network.

[0191] 终端设备10或执行程序的计算机首先将记录在便携式记录媒体上的或从服务器计算机中传送的程序存储到终端设备10的存储设备中。 Programs [0191] Computer terminal device 10 or executing program is first recorded on the portable recording medium or transferred from the server computer to the terminal device stored in the storage device 10. 例如,在终端设备10的情形中,程序存储在HDD 21等中。 For example, in the case of the terminal device 10, the program stored in the HDD 21 or the like. 然后终端设备10或计算机从它自己的存储设备中读取程序并根据该程序执行处理。 Then the terminal device 10 or the computer reads the program from its own storage device and executes processing according to the program. 注意,终端设备10或计算机可直接从便携式记录媒体中读取程序,并根据程序执行处理。 Note that the terminal device 10 or a computer-readable program medium, and performs processing according to a program directly from the portable recording. 或者,每当从服务器计算机中传送程序时,可根据接收到的程序执行处理。 Alternatively, whenever the program transmitted from the server computer, the processing may be performed in accordance with the received program.

[0192] 如上所述,该网络系统被构建成:实现向终端设备10提供现在播送信息的服务, 同时终端设备10接收来自预设置广播电台的节目。 [0192] As described above, the network system is configured to: implement broadcast service information to the terminal device 10 is now provided, while the terminal device 10 receives from a preset radio stations. 然后,图13所示的音乐相关服务提供系统1000将参照图14〜25被描述为该网络系统的特定示例。 Then, the music related service provision system shown in FIG. 13 is described with particular examples 14~25 1000 for the network system of FIG.

[0315] 然后,参照图21〜沈的流程图,将描述在客户机终端1002和入口服务器1003之间执行的处理,以及在客户机终端1002与包括音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005 和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006的其它服务器之间执行的处理。 [0315] Then, with reference to the flowchart of FIG. 21~ sink, the processing between the client terminal 1002 and the portal server 1003 performs will be described, and a client terminal 1002 and the music data distribution server 1004 includes, selling server 1005 and the radio another server process performed between the broadcast information delivery server 1006.

[0316] (1-7-1)客户机终端1002和入口服务器1003之间的用户验证处理过程 [0316] (1-7-1) between the user client terminal 1002 and the portal server authentication process 1003

[0317] 首先,将参照图21描述在客户机终端1002和入口服务器1003之间执行的用户验证处理。 [0317] First, a user is described in FIG between the client terminal 1002 and the portal server 1003 performs authentication processing 21 will be described.

[0318] 当执行开启客户机终端1002的操作,或者用户按下操作输入部分1020上的特定操作按键时,与音乐相关服务提供系统1000的管理代理签约的用户的客户机终端1002的用户开始验证请求处理,并且由操作输入部分1020识别的操作输入信号被输入处理单元1021转换成操作命令并提供。 [0318] When the client terminal to perform a turn operation 1002 or the user pressing a specific key operation on the operation input section 1020, and the music-related service providing system 1000. User Agent subscribes to manage the client terminal 1002 starts user authentication request processing section 1020 and an operation input signal recognized by the operation input is input to the processing unit 1021 and converted into an operation command provided.

[0319] 当客户机终端1002开始验证请求处理时,控制单元1023在步骤SP1000上产生包含临时存储在验证信息存储单元1038中的验证对话ID信息等的连接请求信号,并连续通过通信控制单元1032和网络接口1033将所产生的连接请求信号传送给入口服务器1003。 [0319] When the client terminal 1002 starts an authentication request process, the control unit 1023 at step SP1000 produced comprising temporarily stored in the authenticated connection authentication session ID information and the like information storage unit 1038 in the request signal, and continuously passed through the communication control unit 1032 and a network interface 1033 to connect the generated request signal to the portal server 1003.

[0320] 注意,在客户机终端1002与入口服务器1003连接进行通信,以执行诸如用户验证处理的各种处理的任何时候,验证对话ID信息是由入口服务器1003发出来自标识各个通信连接状态(即对话)的标识信息。 [0320] Note that the client terminal 1002 and the portal server 1003 are connected in communication to perform user authentication processing whenever such as various processes, authentication session ID information is information identifying individual communication connection state sent from the portal server 1003 (i.e. dialogue) identification information. [0321] 在用于用户验证处理等时,验证对话ID信息具有相对于入口服务器1003发出的时间点的预定有效期(例如,约为1分钟)。 [0321] When processing for user authentication, authentication session ID information has a predetermined relation to the time validity of the portal server 1003 emitted (e.g., about 1 minute).

[0322] 因此,如果验证对话ID信息在有效期内不能向入口服务器1003提供,则从入口服务器1003获得验证对话ID信息的客户机终端1002确定由验证对话ID信息指定的通信连接状态被入口服务器1003断开。 [0322] Thus, if the authentication session ID information to the portal server 1003 can not be provided within the validity period, is obtained from the portal server 1002 determines 1003 specified by the authentication session ID information of a communication connection status verification session ID information to the portal server by the client terminal 1003 disconnect.

[0346] 在该情形中,有这种类型的用户验证处理(在下文中称为间接访问验证过程),它以这样的方式执行:如上参照图20所述客户机终端1002曾经从入口服务器1003获得页面信息,随后根据嵌于页面信息上的链接用来访问音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006。 [0346] In this case, there is the type of user authentication processing (referred to as indirect access authentication process hereinafter), it is performed in such a way: as described above with reference to FIG. 20 the client terminal 1002 was obtained from the portal server 1003 page information, and then based on the information embedded in the page's link to access the music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006.

[0347] 还有另一种类型的用户验证处理(在下文中称为直接访问验证过程),它以这样的方式执行:客户机终端1002未从入口服务器1003获得页面信息,而是根据先前登记为书签的URL信息等来直接访问音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006。 [0347] There is another type of user authentication processing (referred to as direct access authentication process hereinafter), performed in such a manner that: the client terminal 1002 is not 1003 to obtain page information from the portal server, but according to the previously registered as URL information such as bookmarks to directly access the music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006.

[0348] 间接访问验证过程可用上述相同方式来执行,其中音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006与客户机终端1002任意组合。 [0348] indirect access authentication process can be performed in the same manner described above, wherein the music data delivery server 1004, sales server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 and the client terminal 1002 arbitrary combination.

[0349] 直接访问验证过程可用上述相同方式来执行,其中音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006与客户机终端1002任意组合。 [0349] Direct access authentication process can be performed in the same manner described above, wherein the music data delivery server 1004, sales server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 and the client terminal 1002 arbitrary combination.

[0350] 间接访问验证过程和直接访问验证过程的不同之处仅在于从客户机终端1002访问音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006所使用的获取URL信息的方式。 [0350] is different from the indirect access authentication process and the direct access authentication process that acquires URL information of how the client terminal 1002 to access the music data distribution server from 1004, selling server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 uses only. 在获得URL信息之后,可以相同过程执行间接访问验证处理和直接访问验证处理。 After obtaining the URL information, you can perform an indirect access authentication process and the direct access authentication process the same process.

[0351] 因此,在下文中,为简化描述起见,音乐数据分发服务器1004被取为代表性访问目标,并且直接和间接访问验证处理被一起代表性地描述为一个用户验证处理。 [0351] Thus, in the following, for simplifying the description, the music data distribution server 1004 is taken as a representative access target, and direct and indirect access authentication process is described representatively with a user authentication process.

[0352] 首先,在步骤SP1010,客户机终端1002的控制单元1023根据内嵌为页面信息中链接的URL信息或预先登记为书签的URL信息,控制单元1023连续通过通信控制单元1032 和网络接口1033向音乐数据分发服务器1004传送从验证信息存储单元1038中读取的服务对话ID信息,以及请求和获取有关音乐数据分发的页面信息(在销售服务器1005和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006情形中,可分别用盒装媒体销售页面信息和播送列表信息分发页面信息代替)的页面信息获取请求信号。 [0352] First, at step The SP1010, the client terminal 1002, the control unit 1023 in accordance with URL information embedded as links in the page information or the URL information registered as a bookmark, the control unit 1023 continuously through the communication control unit 1032 and the network interface 1033 to the music data distribution server 1004 transmits the service session ID information read from the authentication information storing section 1038, and the request and obtain information about the music data delivery page (in the case of selling server 1005 and the 1006 radio broadcast information distribution server, respectively, Instead of distributing information page) Packed with information and broadcast media sales page list information page information acquisition request signal.

[0353] 注意,服务对话ID信息是客户机终端1002所访问的音乐数据分发服务器1004、 销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006发出的标识信息,来标识在客户机终端1002建立与音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006的通信连接,以执行诸如用户验证处理的各种处理的任何时候的各个通信连接状态(即对话)。 [0353] Note that the service session ID information is identification information 1002 Access client terminal music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006 issued identified in the 1002 establishment of the client terminal and music data the distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 of the communication connection in order to perform individual communication connection state at any time of the user authentication processing such as various processes (i.e., conversation).

[0354] 当用于用户验证处理等时,验证对话ID信息具有音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006发出的时间点的预定有效期(例如,约为1分钟)。 [0354] When the processing for user authentication, authentication session ID information having the music data delivery server 1004, the predetermined period of time points selling server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 issued (e.g., about 1 minute).

[0355] 因此,如果验证对话ID信息在有效期内不能向作为签发者的音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006提供,则从服务器1004〜 1006的任一个获得验证对话ID信息的客户机终端1002确定由验证对话ID信息指定的通信连接状态被作为签发者的音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006断开。 [0355] Thus, if the validation session ID information within a period not to the issuer as a music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006 provides, from the server to get any 1004~ 1006 a validation session the client terminal ID information 1002 is determined by the authentication session ID information specifying a communication connection status of the issuer of the music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006 is disconnected.

[0356] 因而,音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006防止过去发出的验证对话ID信息被未与音乐相关服务提供系统1000的管理代理签约的用户错误使用。 [0356] Thus, the music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and radio broadcast information distribution server 1006 prevent validation session ID information issued in the past is no system and music-related services 1000 management agent signing of the use of user error.

[0357] 临时存储在验证信息存储单元1038中的验证对话ID信息在客户机终端1002和音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006连接用于通信时从作为访问目标的音乐数据分发服务器1004、销售服务器1005、和无线电广播信息分发服务器1006发出,以执行用户验证处理等。 [0357] authentication session ID information temporarily stored in the authentication information storing section 1038 of the client terminal 1002 and the music data delivery server 1004, sales server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 is connected to a communication from the access target the music data distribution server 1004, sales server 1005, and the radio broadcast information delivery server 1006 issue, to perform user authentication processing. [0358] 在步骤SP1011,音乐数据分发服务器1004的控制单元1070连续通过网络接口1073和通信控制单元1072接收从客户机终端1002传送的页面信息获取请求信号、服务对话ID信息等,并向验证处理单元1075传送所接收的服务对话ID信息。 [0358] At step SP1011, the music data delivery server 1070, the control unit 1004 receives the page information continuously transmitted from the client terminal 1002 acquires the request signal, service session ID information through the network interface 1073 and the communication control unit 1072 and the like, and the verification process unit 1075 transmits the received service session ID information.

[0359] 在控制单元1070的控制下,验证处理单元1075通过对所接收的服务对话ID信息等与暂时存储在验证信息存储单元1077中的服务对话ID信息作比较,执行用户验证处理。 [0359] Under control of the control unit 1070, the authentication processing unit 1075 through the service session ID information and the like of the received and temporarily stored in the authentication service session ID information storage unit 1077 for comparison, performs user authentication processing.

[0360] 结果,如果验证处理单元1075例如可能因为从客户机终端1002接收的服务对话ID信息的有效期过期而不能验证客户机终端1002的用户为有效用户,则验证处理单元1075确定客户机终端1002发出对获取音乐数据分发的页面信息的请求是无效请求。 [0360] As a result, if the authentication processing unit 1075 may, for example because the duration expires session ID information from the client terminal 1002 receives the service can not verify the client terminal 1002, the user is a valid user, the authentication processing unit 1075 determines the client terminal 1002 issuing a request for obtaining information page music data distribution request is invalid.

[0361] 此外,如果验证处理单元1075不能验证客户机终端1002的用户为有效用户,则控制单元1070连续通过通信控制单元1072和网络接口1073将表示验证错误的验证错误信息和标识音乐数据分发服务器1004的商店代码传送给客户机终端1002。 [0361] Further, if the authentication processing unit 1075 does not verify the client terminal 1002, the user is a valid user, the control unit 1070 continuously through the communication control section 1072 and the network interface 1073 indicating that an error of the validation error information identifying the music data distribution server store code 1004 is transmitted to the client terminal 1002.

[0362] 在步骤SP1012,客户机终端1002的控制单元1023连续通过网络接口1033和通信控制单元1032接收从音乐数据分发服务器1004传送的验证错误信息和商店代码。 [0362] At step SP1012, the control unit (1023) the client terminal 1002 receives the authentication error information and continuously store codes from the music data distribution server 1004 transmits through the network interface 1033 and the communication control unit 1032. 根据所接收的验证错误信息,控制单元1023识别用户经音乐数据分发服务器1004验证不是有效用户,且控制单元1023将从音乐数据分发服务器1004接收的商店代码暂时存储在验证信息存储单元1038中。 According to the received authentication error information, the control unit 1023 recognizes the user via the music data delivery server 1004 is not a valid user authentication, and controls the temporary storage unit 1023 stores codes from the music data delivery server 1004 receives the authentication information storing section 1038.

[0363] 然后,控制单元1023产生验证票据签发请求信号,该信号请求入口服务器1003发出用于访问音乐数据分发服务器1004的验证票据,并连续通过通信控制单元1032和网络接口1033将所生成的验证票据签发请求信号、音乐数据分发服务器1004的商店代码、验证对话ID信息等传送给入口服务器1003,其中验证对话ID信息等已从入口服务器1003中接收,并暂时存储在验证信息存储单元1038中。 [0363] Then, the control unit 1023 generates authentication ticket issuance request signal, the request signal issued by the portal server 1003 for accessing the authentication ticket music data delivery server 1004, and continuously passed through the communication control unit 1032 and the network interface 1033 transmits the generated verified ticket issuance request signal, the music data distribution server 1004 stores the code, authentication session ID information and the like transmitted to the portal server 1003, wherein the authentication session ID information and the like received from the portal server 1003, and temporarily stored in the authentication information storing unit 1038.
