Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a disc reproducing apparatus for automatically discriminating and reproducing a DTS disc.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art A mega-changer type CD player capable of storing, for example, 200 CDs has been known as a disk reproducing apparatus capable of storing a plurality of disks. In such a megachanger type CD player, a plurality of stored CDs can be arbitrarily selected and sequentially reproduced. Further, as a reproduction signal, a digital output signal can be obtained from a digital output terminal, or an analog output signal can be obtained from an analog output terminal.

However, if a plurality of stored CDs include a disk in which digital audio is compressed (hereinafter, referred to as a "DTS disk"), when the DTS disk is reproduced, noise is generated in an analog output. . Here, the DTS disc includes an LD (laser disc), a DVD (digital video disc) and the like in addition to the CD. In the case of a DTS disc, if it is decoded before reproduction using the DTS decoding function, an analog output signal can be obtained by signal processing similar to that of a normal CD.

However, it has no DTS decoding function,
That is, when a DTS disc is reproduced by a CD player that is not compatible with the DTS disc, noise appears in the analog output signal.

Similarly, without a DTS decoding function,
That is, for receivers that do not support DTS,
Even when the above-described CD player is connected as an input source and a digital output signal of a DTS disc is received and reproduced from its digital output terminal, noise appears in the reproduced output signal.

One of the solutions to this problem is that, in a CD player having no digital output but only an analog output, the user is required to register a DTS disc by himself, and when the DTS disc is reproduced, , Muting is applied to prevent noise from appearing on the analog output.

As another method, there is a method of mounting a "DTS disk skip" function on a CD player.

The method of using the "DTS disc skip" function will be described below.

FIG. 6 is a flowchart for explaining the DTS disk data registration / deletion operation by the user. First, it is determined whether or not to perform DTS registration (step S31). If registration is to be performed, a DTS disk is selected (step S32). Next, after the DTS disk is determined, the designated DISC No. The DTS information is registered in the area corresponding to (disk number; representing the storage location of the disk) (step S33).

On the other hand, if DTS registration is not performed in step S31, it is determined whether or not to delete DTS (step S34). If the DTS is not deleted, the operation ends. When performing DTS deletion, a DTS disk to be deleted is selected (step S35).
Next, after the disc is determined, the designated DISC NO.
The DTS information is deleted from the RAM area corresponding to (disk number; representing the storage location of the disk) (step S36).

FIG. 7 is a diagram showing an example of DTS disk data stored in the RAM. In FIG. 7, DIS
C NO. Since DTS disks are stored in 1, 3, and 100, "DTS" is input as disk data. Also, DISC NO. Since a CD other than the DTS disk is stored in 2,150 or the like, "NOT DTS" is input as disk data.

[0012] Thus, the CD or DTS to each storage location
When a disk is replaced, DTS registration and deletion are performed by the user. The user can use the "DTS disc skip" function of the CD player during analog playback on a changer-type CD player that does not have a digital output or digital playback on a receiver that does not support DTS using the CD player as an input source. Start manually. As a result, the DTS-registered disc is skipped and not reproduced, and the DTS is not reproduced.
Only CDs other than discs are played. Therefore, the generation of the noise accompanying the reproduction of the DTS disk is avoided.

[0013]

However, even when the above-mentioned "DTS disk skip" function can be used, there is an annoyance that the user has to register the DTS disk by himself. That is, as shown in FIG.
SC NO. When the user wants to register the DTS, the DTS registration process as shown in FIG.

Further, once DTS registration is performed, the disc is skipped and cannot be reproduced unless the DTS deletion processing as shown in FIG. 6 is performed again. Before performing DTS registration, the DT
When the S disk is reproduced, there is a problem that noise is generated in the output.

[0015] In view of such problems, an object of the present invention is to provide a disk reproducing apparatus that can easily reproduce a disk suitable for reproduction from a mixture of plural types of disks.

[0016]

In view of the above-mentioned object,
A disc reproducing apparatus according to the present invention includes: a reproducing unit for selectively reproducing a disk from a plurality of stored disks; a control unit for controlling a reproducing operation of the reproducing unit; and a DTS information included in a disk reproduction signal. A discriminating means for discriminating a DTS disk storing DTS information, and a storage means for storing a discrimination result by the discriminating means are provided. The control means controls the automatic skip of the DTS disc in the disc and the reproduction of a disc other than the DTS disc based on the discrimination result stored in the storage means when the disc is reproduced by the reproducing means.

As a result, the DTS information of the DTS disc is automatically determined and stored. Since the DTS disk is skipped during the disk reproduction based on the discrimination result, the DTS disk is not erroneously reproduced and noise does not appear.

According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a disc reproducing apparatus for reproducing a disc selectively from a plurality of stored discs, a control means for controlling a reproducing operation of the reproducing means, and a disc reproducing signal. DTS decoding means for decoding the DTS information to be read out, determination means for determining the DTS disk storing the DTS information based on the DTS information from the DTS decoding means, and storage means for storing the determination result by the determination means. . The control means controls to select and reproduce only the DTS disk in the disk based on the discrimination result stored in the storage means when the reproducing means reproduces the disk.

Thus, the DTS information of the DTS disc is automatically determined and stored. Then, based on this determination result, it is possible to selectively reproduce only the DTS disk at the time of reproducing the disk.
