BACKGROUND AND

SUMMARY

OF THE INVENTION

This is a continuation of application Ser. No. 08/817,437, filed Jun. 12, 1997, the entire content of which is hereby incorporated by reference in this application.

The invention relates to a home digital audiovisual information recording and reproduction apparatus.

Audiovisual reproduction systems found generally in cafes or pubs and called jukeboxes are known. These devices are generally bulky including large storage capacities unsuited for home use. The object of this invention is to eliminate these defects of the prior art by proposing a device which allows a home user to acquire digital audiovisual data selections using his TV and to reproduce them using the TV screen for the visual part and the components of his stereo system for the audio part.

The first object of the invention is to propose an apparatus which allows selection and downloading of digital data, and reproduction of these digital data for domestic apparatus or use of the device for karaoke.

This first object is achieved with a home digital information audiovisual recording and playback apparatus developed around a microprocessor device linked via a digital interface to a display and by another interface to audio reproduction structure. The apparatus includes a telecommunications interface for downloading the digital data containing the audio selection or the video selection. The apparatus includes control structure that allows control of a display device and selection via a menu of one operating mode from among three in which the device either plays back data stored in its mass storage or allows recording of a new item of digitized data in its mass storage or mixes with the digitized data delivered by the mass storage of a piece of analog data delivered by a microphone.

A second object of the invention is to devise a modular apparatus which consequently allows continued development of the device to support recording of selections on a portable medium.

This object is achieved with a supplementary recording module connected by a specific interface to the primary apparatus, and a recording menu can be selected using the buttons of the control structure of the device of the primary apparatus.

According to another feature, the recording module allows production of portable recording media to be played on another digital audiovisual information playback unit.

Another object of the invention is to devise a modular device which allows the user to develop a design allowing storage of a plurality of audio or video or audiovisual information selections.
