Description

The present invention relates to a print content system and its control how, particularly, is suitably applied to a digital broadcast receiver for receiving and displaying broadcast data transmitted from a broadcasting station.

  In recent years, with the start of BS digital broadcasting, when data other than a program is transmitted, it has become easier to process these data on the digital television receiver side (hereinafter referred to as a DTV apparatus). Therefore, print data related to the program can be transmitted as data other than the program, and the print data can be printed by connecting the DTV apparatus and the printer. Such print data is specifically a recipe in a cooking program, a tourist spot guide in a travel program, or the like.

  Then, as shown in FIG. 8A, in these print data, the contents of the printed matter and the print button are displayed on the screen according to the necessity for printing while viewing the television. At the same time, print setting information such as the size and number of sheets may be displayed. In this state, when the user who is a viewer confirms the display and presses the print button, the print data is transferred from the DTV device to the printer, and printing is executed.

  In this printing, it is often the printer itself that generates output data for output on paper. For this reason, the contents of printing cannot often be determined by the DTV device. In this regard, even if the final print content is not known, the print content can be determined from the viewing content if the program is being viewed. Further, by confirming the display screen as shown in FIG. 8A, it is possible to determine the contents of the printed matter, and there is no particular difficulty in printing.

However, in order to print these print data, it is necessary to complete the connection of the printer, the installation of the paper, the ink cartridge, and the like at the time of instructing printing. In such a case, the printed material may not be printed immediately. In some cases, it is not necessary to print immediately.

As a result, the main menu GUI screen is displayed on the viewing screen as shown in FIG. 9A.

  Next, the process proceeds to step S2, and it is determined whether or not the print button is selected and determined by the viewer on the main menu GUI screen. If the other button is selected and determined without selecting the print button (step S2: NO), the process proceeds to step S9, and button processing corresponding to the selected and determined button is executed.

  On the other hand, when the print button is selected and determined (step S2: YES), the process proceeds to step S3, where the system control unit 1191 detects this print button selection determination, and the control is passed to the print control unit 1191c. . Thereafter, the graphic control unit 1131 is controlled by the print control unit 1191c, and the named buttons are arranged in a list form in the plurality of stored print files. As the name, the program name in the program related information in the print file is displayed. In this way, a print content list screen including a GUI screen is generated. This content list screen is drawn on the application plane of the display composition control unit 1133 and displayed on the display unit 1134.

  Thereafter, the process proceeds to step S4, and the so-called focus highlighted on the screen is controlled to be set to the last saved print file button from at least one print file.

  In step S5, JPEG data stored in association with the print file is developed. The expanded JPEG file is controlled so as to be reduced and drawn as a print file related image, for example, on the right side of the button GUI screen. Thereby, the display as shown in FIG. 9B is performed. Thereafter, the process proceeds to step S6, and when the viewer presses the enter key for the focused print file, the process proceeds to step S7 and the same printing as described above is started.

  On the other hand, if the determination key is not pressed in step S6, the process proceeds to step S10.
