Title
(EN) DISPLAY APPARATUS CONNECTED TO PLURAL SOURCE DEVICES AND METHOD OF CONTROLLING THE SAME
Abstract
(EN)

A method of controlling a display apparatus connected to plural source devices. The method includes receiving first metadata corresponding to contents to be displayed on the display apparatus from a first source externally connected to the display apparatus; receiving second metadata corresponding to contents to be displayed on the display apparatus from a second source externally connected to the display apparatus that is different than the first source; processing the first metadata and the second metadata received from both of the first and second sources; generating a program guide comprising graphic data indicating the contents corresponding to at least one of the first and second metadata; and displaying the generated program guide, wherein a position of the graphic data is arranged in a predetermined order.
