Abstract
(EN)
A video processing apparatus may be controlled in response to selecting an advertisement displayed in connection with a productivity or communication application software program being operated on a video processing apparatus. The advertisement includes control information, which is used by the video processing apparatus to control an operating mode thereof. The control information may include both time and channel data as well as a recording data for programming a timer. Alternately, the control information may only include program data, which is passed to the electronic program guide to determine the time and channel information associated with the programm data.

Cette invention permet de commander un appareil de traitement vidéo en réponse à la sélection d'une annonce publicitaire affichée en relation avec un programme de logiciel d'application de communication ou de productivité tournant sur un appareil de traitement vidéo. L'annonce publicitaire contient des informations de commande qui sont utilisées par l'appareil de traitement vidéo pour commander son mode de fonctionnement. Les informations de commande peuvent inclure des données à la fois sur l'heure et le canal ainsi que des données d'enregistrement pour la programmation d'une horloge. Dans une variante, les informations de commande peuvent inclure uniquement des données de programme, qui sont transmises au guide de programme électronique pour déterminer les informations d'heure et de canal associées aux données du programme.
