Title (EN) USER INTERFACE FOR SET TOP BOX
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR POUR BOÎTIER DÉCODEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A method for control comprises a set top box receiving coordinates from a touch sensing screen. The coordinates are interpreted for controlling the set top box, and in accordance with the interpreted coordinates an action is performed. A further method for control comprises a set top box receiving a signal representative of displacement. A control function is determined from the displacement representative signal and the control function is activated. In accordance with the control function a signal is formed for communication.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de commande qui comprend la réception, par un boîtier décodeur, de coordonnées provenant d'un écran tactile. Les coordonnées sont interprétées pour commander le boîtier décodeur et, conformément aux coordonnées interprétées, une action est effectuée. Un autre procédé de commande comprend la réception, par un boîtier décodeur, d'un signal représentatif d'un déplacement. Une fonction de commande est déterminée à partir du signal représentatif d'un déplacement, et la fonction de commande est activée. Conformément à la fonction de commande, un signal est formé pour une communication.
