Integrated Broadcast Television Reception for Use with Computers

A technique is described whereby commercial broadcast television reception is integrated with computer technology such that a single display will share the same electrical components, such as power supply, deflection circuits, controls, etc.

With the advent of high definition television (HDTV), with its large screen and high resolution displays, integrating commercial television with computer technology is an appropriate concept. Combining the HDTV, or other TV technologies, with computer circuitry is particularly appropriate where the cost factors are significant.

The concept described herein foresees the integration of a system that is compatible with industry standards for transmission and reception, such as cable, phone and satellite operation, relative to both TV and computer operation. The system keyboard would be either directly plugable with coupling capability, or remotely detached similar to inferred operation. Video and audio enhancements would be available to offer added user control of the TV system output functions, such as music and image enhancements. By integrating functional components, the user can obtain the superior results of HDTV in both TV and computer resolution at minimal cost.
