Once this determination has been made, the television viewer equipment then presents the advertisements, or selects and presents suitable alternative advertisements. A single broadcasting of each network advertisement to all television systems is enabled in the present invention by broadcasting each advertisement with a network identifier to all television systems. At the television systems, the network identifier and channel map or program guide information located in television viewer equipment are then used by an interactive program guide or other application running in the television viewer equipment to determine whether a local affiliate for that network is available and not designated as undesirable by the television viewer. If the local affiliate is available and not designated as undesirable, the advertisement is then presented to the television viewer, otherwise a suitable alternative advertisement is then identified and presented to the television viewer."

The edge rate of the reference-clock signal is lower than the bit rate of the command signals, so the memory device multiplies the reference clock signal to develop a command-recovery clock signal with which to sample the incoming command signals. The memory controller issues the command signals as a series of multi-bit command words aligned with edges of the reference-clock signal so that the memory device can use edges of the reference clock signal for command-word alignment." The patent application was filed on May 8, 2008 (12/598,068). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,352,772.PN.&OS=PN/8,352,772&RS=PN/8,352,772 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

A data transfer request is received from at least one host device, and includes a host device ID and a data transfer request ID. The media controller generates a Tag ID of the data transfer request based on the host device ID and the data transfer request ID, and generates a starting memory address of a tag table based on the Tag ID of the data transfer request. A tag count value is read from the starting memory address of the tag table. If the tag count value reaches a threshold, an absence of a tag overlap is determined and the Tag ID of the data transfer request is added to the tag table at the starting memory address." The patent application was filed on Nov. 23, 2010 (12/952,207). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,352,689.PN.&OS=PN/8,352,689&RS=PN/8,352,689 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
