Title: CONTENTS SITUATION NOTIFICATION DEVICE USED IN APPARATUS PROVIDED WITH DIGITAL STORAGE DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a contents situation notification device used in an apparatus provided with a digital storage device, the contents situation notification device comprising: a demultiplexer; an ECM filter for extracting an ECM from a transmission stream input through the demultiplexer; a CA application processing unit for transferring content of the ECM to a smart card or a CAM module and acquiring a control word and a URI from the smart card or the CAM module; a descrambler for decoding the corresponding stream using the acquired control word; a record engine for selectively recording contents, which have been obtained by the decoding, according to the URI; a memory for storing the contents together with the URI under the control of the record engine; a playback engine for analyzing the stored URI during playback of the contents, determining whether the contents are operating or not on the basis of the URI analysis result, and selectively playing back the contents such that the contents are output to an AV output unit, wherein the playback engine analyzes the stored URI, expresses situations related to respective contents periods using different situation identification UI (user interface) elements such that different situations can be distinguished from each other, and outputs the same to an OSD UI output unit. A bar, which displays playback situations, schematically expresses situations related to respective contents periods using different colors or patterns, thereby indicating that the corresponding function is unavailable in the current situation; accordingly, a better UI is provided than information relying on simple message output, thereby improving use convenience.
