Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING A DISPLAY FUNCTION
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE COMMANDE D'UNE FONCTION D'AFFICHAGE
Abstract
(EN) A method (300) for controlling a display function of an apparatus such as a television signal receiver is capable of remedying a display locked in an extinguished state to thereby ensure that a usable display is provided. According to an exemplary embodiment, the method (300) includes steps of detecting a power on condition of the apparatus (330), determining whether at least one predetermined display parameter associated with the display function exhibits at least one predetermined value responsive to the power on condition (340), and adjusting the at least one predetermined display parameter if the at least one predetermined display parameter exhibits the at least one predetermined value (360).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé (300) de commande d'une fonction d'affichage d'un appareil notamment un récepteur de signaux de télévision permettant d'avoir recours à un affichage verrouillé éteint afin d'assurer qu'un affichage utilisable est disponible. Selon l'un des modes de réalisation de l'invention, le procédé (300) comprend les étapes consistant à détecter une puissance sur la condition de l'appareil (330), à déterminer si au moins un paramètre d'affichage prédéfini associé à la fonction d'affichage présente au moins une valeur prédéfinie répondant à la puissance de condition (340), et à régler ce paramètre d'affichage prédéfini si au moins un paramètre d'affichage prédéfini présente au moins une valeur prédéfinie (360).
