And insert this DIT into the data. The DIT is a type of service information defined by a DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) system that is European digital broadcasting. The DIT has a 1-bit flag called “transition_flag” (hereinafter abbreviated as “tf”) as syntax.

  tf indicates the type of state transition in MPEG-TS. If tf is 1, it indicates that a state transition has occurred because the source data in MPEG-TS has changed. This change in source data can be a change in the MPEG-TS itself, and can also be a change in position in the MPEG-TS, as in the case of a time shift, for example. That is, if tf is 1, it indicates that the source data is discontinuous. Also, if tf is 0, it indicates that the state transition has occurred due to a change of selection only. That is, the data stays in the same TS at the same position and is continuous.

  A method of inserting such a DIT into data will be described separately when a DIT is to be inserted.

  First, as a case where the DIT is inserted into the data and transmitted, there is a case where the DIT recorded on the recording medium is being reproduced. Specifically, for example, when a DIT accompanying a discontinuous MPEG-TS recorded on the recording medium of the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is being reproduced.

  In such a case, the tuner device 40 inserts a DIT when switching the channel for the unpacketized data received from the data recording / reproducing media device 20 via the IEEE 1394 serial bus 60.

  In addition, as a case where data should be transmitted with DIT inserted, there is a time when data output is started. Specifically, for example, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 changes the operation mode from the stop state (Stop) to the reproduction state (playback; PB) and starts outputting data recorded on the recording medium. .

  In such a case, an operation mode in the data recording / reproducing media device 20, a digital input / output mode (hereinafter referred to as a DIF mode) in a portion where connection management of the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is performed, data recording / reproducing. The time change of the control signal for mute control and the MPEG-TS packet sent from the control microcomputer 24 of the media device 20 to the switch 27 is represented by a timing chart as shown in FIG. That is, when the DIF mode changes from input (IN) to output (OUT), the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is abbreviated as its own output plug (Output Plug Control Register; hereinafter referred to as oPCR) which is a logical entry / exit of data. The broadcast connection counter (hereinafter referred to as Bcc) or the point-to-point connection counter (hereinafter referred to as Pcc) in FIG. The connection state is assumed. Then, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 inserts one DIT of tf = 1 before canceling the mute. Note that Empty in the figure indicates an empty packet.

  In this case, the start of data output in the connection state is also included. Specifically, for example, when the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is dubbing, the operation mode is changed from the stop state to the reproduction state, and output of data recorded on the recording medium is started.

  Even in such a case, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 inserts one DIT of tf = 1 before canceling the mute.

  Such a series of processing in the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is as shown in FIG. That is, in step S1, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 transmits a control signal from the control microcomputer 24 to the switch 27 so that data is not input to the IEEE 1394 I / F 23, and the mute is turned on and the control is performed. A control signal is transmitted from the microcomputer 24 to the memory 29 in the IEEE 1394 I / F 23 to clear the data held in the memory 29.

  Next, in step S2, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 has the operation mode paused (Pause) or, for example, playback pause (PBpause), fast winding (Cue), fast rewinding (Review), slow playback ( It is determined whether or not a variable speed reproduction state such as (Slow).

  If the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is in the paused state or the variable speed state, it is determined in step S5 whether Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more in the oPCR, that is, whether it is in a connected state. Determine whether or not.

  Here, when both Bcc and Pcc are 0 in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 proceeds to the process of step S7.

  On the other hand, if Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 proceeds to the process of step S6.

  If the data recording / reproducing media device 20 determines in step S2 that it is not in the pause state or the variable speed state, it determines in step S3 whether both Bcc and Pcc are 0 in oPCR.

  Here, if Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 proceeds to the process of step S6.

  On the other hand, if both Bcc and Pcc are 0 in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 adds 1 to Bcc or Pcc in the oPCR in step S4.

  In step S6, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 transmits a DIT of tf = 1 from the control microcomputer 24 to the memory 29, and inserts the DIT into the data.

  In step S7, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 transitions to the reproduction state, and in step S8, the control microcomputer 24 transmits a control signal to the switch 27 so that the data is input to the IEEE 1394 I / F 23. The mute is turned off, and the series of processes is terminated.

  The data recording / reproducing media device 20 does not insert a DIT when the DIF mode is output and its own oPCR is set to Bcc = 0 or Pcc = 0 by remote control.

  Through such a series of processing, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 inserts the DIT at the timing described above. The data recording / reproducing media device 20 packetizes the data in which the DIT is inserted in the 1394 packetizing unit 30 and outputs the packetized data as MPEG-TS to the outside via the IEEE 1394 serial bus 60.

  On the other hand, the tuner device 40 receives the MPEG-TS transmitted from the data recording / reproducing media device 20, performs a series of processes as shown in FIG.

  That is, in the tuner device 40, as shown in the figure, in step S11, the control microcomputer 46 turns on the muting of the input stage and the output stage of the decoder 43 and a D / A (Digital to Analog) converter (not shown). To stop the abnormal video and audio output processing, and to instruct the input stage and output stage of the demultiplexer 42 to turn on mute so that an abnormal stream is not input. To.

  Next, in step S <b> 12, the tuner device 40 transmits a control signal from the control microcomputer 46 to the memory 52 in the IEEE 1394 I / F 41 to clear data held in the memory 52. Here, if there is a memory (not shown) used by each unit of the tuner device 40 for data processing or the like, the memory is also cleared.

  Further, in step S13, the tuner device 40 sets data necessary for returning from the initialization or pause state of each unit as necessary.

  In step S14, the tuner device 40 instructs the control microcomputer 46 to set the input stage of the demultiplexer 42 to the mute OFF state, and the 1394 unpacketizing unit 51 inputs the packet unpacketized. After detecting the incoming stream's sync byte, make sure that the stream is entering stably.

  Further, in step S15, the tuner device 40 instructs the control microcomputer 46 to turn off the muting of the output stage of the demultiplexer 42 and the output stage of the decoder 43, and the stream input to the decoder 43. Make sure that is decoded stably.

  Then, in step S16, the tuner device 40 instructs the output stage of the decoder 43 and the input stage and output stage of the D / A converter to be in a mute OFF state, such as a monitor, a speaker, or a VTR. Data is output again to the connected electronic device, and normal video and audio playback is resumed.

  By doing so, the tuner device 40 can appropriately decode data under the control of the control microcomputer 46, and each unit such as the demultiplexer 42 and the decoder 43 will not hang up. Abnormal sound that displays a noise image or destroys the speaker is not output.

  Next, a description will be given of a case where data output is stopped as a case where data should be transmitted with DIT inserted. Specifically, for example, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 changes the operation mode from the reproduction state to the stop state.

  In such a case, an operation mode in the data recording / reproducing media device 20, a DIF mode in the data recording / reproducing media device 20, a control signal for mute control sent from the control microcomputer 24 of the data recording / reproducing media device 20 to the switch 27, MPEG The time change of the TS packet is represented by a timing chart as shown in FIG. That is, when the DIF mode is input from the output, the data recording / playback media device 20 sets the DIT of tf = 1 to 1 before setting Bcc> 0 or Pcc> 0 in its oPCR after setting mute. Insert one.

  In this case, the data output is stopped when the connection is established. Specifically, for example, the operation mode is changed from the reproduction state to the stop state while the data recording / reproduction media device 20 is dubbing.

  Even in such a case, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 inserts one DIT of tf = 1.

  Such a series of processes in the data recording / reproducing media device 20 is as shown in FIG. That is, in step S21, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 transmits a control signal from the control microcomputer 24 to the switch 27 to turn on mute so that data is not input to the IEEE1394 I / F 23, and control is performed. A control signal is transmitted from the microcomputer 24 to the memory 29 in the IEEE 1394 I / F 23 to clear the data held in the memory 29.

  Next, in step S22, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 determines whether the operation mode is a reproduction state.

  Here, in the reproduction state, in step S46, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 determines whether or not Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more in the oPCR, that is, whether or not the connection state is established. .

  Here, if both Bcc and Pcc are 0 in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 proceeds to the process of step S48.

  On the other hand, if Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 transmits a DIT of tf = 1 from the control microcomputer 24 to the memory 29 in step S47. Is inserted into the data, and the process proceeds to step S48.

  If the data recording / reproducing media device 20 determines in step S42 that the recording / reproducing media apparatus 20 is not in the reproduction state but in the stopped state, it determines in step S43 whether Bcc or Pcc is 1 or more by oPCR.

  Here, if both Bcc and Pcc are 0 in the oPCR, the data recording / reproducing media device 20 proceeds to the process of step S48.
