Why do we see Random Numbers or Codes on the Screen while watching TV?


You see a lot of movies, youtube videos, tv series but at least once in a day you also watch tv definitely. And when you watch tv you might have seen some random numbers at random positions coming on your tv screen. And these numbers are irritating and very disturbing. But do you know that by this number your location can be tracked? Yes, this is true.

But guys have ever think that what are these numbers? Why these irritating numbers appears on our tv screen? Why we get these random numbers while watching tv serials or live match? Why do we see numbers or codes on the screen while watching TV? What is the reason behind the random numbers that appear on our TV screens? Why does some random code like ‘EFGQ1H0510HZ’, ‘0675-9876-5432’ appear when you are watching a program on television? So, here on The News Remark you will know it.

What are those random letters or numbers or codes?

You may have noticed many times that the numbers comes anytime in between you are watching tv shows or live broadcast of any cricket match or something. These numbers are very unique number generated randomly and repeatedly. These numbers are also called VC number – Viewing Card Number or the Receiver Number. The code is a reference number of your local cable provider or we can say that it’s like IP address of our set top box or your TV. These numbers are generated from your set up box by your channel broadcasters.

Different numbers for different users

These numbers are generated for you and you only. Also in the same time if you will see a different tv with the same channel then you will realize that both the numbers are different.

Why these random numbers or codes appear?

So, the thing is that whenever there is the live match or tv serials or program or tv shows, so, what some people do is that they start recording it by their camera or phone or by using some other mechanism and they relays the content illegally to other televisions or they upload it on the internet or some other platforms like youtube and torrents. Also those numbers are recorded along with the program.

Now when the company from which you have purchased the set up box does a routine check and becomes aware of some suspicious activity, then their investigation team make a note of that appeared number which is illegally appearing in more than the legally approved number of subscribers or at other places on internet. Then by using this number, that company can find the illegal distributor and shut down their set top box and then take further legal action. These number is generally used as a part of anti-piracy actions taken by channel providers to stop piracy.

Also another interesting point about these numbers is that they appear on random positions. So anyone can’t blur a specific portion of the screen to neglect recording of that random numbers. We cannot remove these number codes, as it is important information to stop piracy.

How does a Computer work? – Short Essay


How does a Computer work? When you hear the word “computer” you most likely start thinking of laptop or desktop computers. But there are many other different kinds of computers. The mobile phone that you use is a computer, the smart phone you use is also a computer. Inside a microwave oven there is also a computer fitted. Inside a washing machine, there is also a computer in it. But wait have you ever think that how this computer works? Have you ever thought that how this computer knows all the languages that are English, Hindi, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, Japanese, Bengali and almost all other languages of the world, but you will be amazed that the computer does not know any of these languages. The computer knows only and only one language called binary language and that is only 0 and 1.

The thing that we use or do with the help of a computer, like this website that you are reading comes to you in the form of 0 and 1. The video that you watch, the audio that you hear also comes to you in the form of 0 and 1. Also the letters we write through the keyboard goes to the computer only in the form of 0 and 1. But, how? So here on The News Remark today you will know a short answer and a basic idea on “How does a computer work?”

Take any computer of this world, it has been taught only 4 works and that are-

  1. take input
  2. store it in memory
  3. process it
  4. give output

How computer works?

This four works are only taught to a computer. Now it is also that computer is a device which works on electricity. If we cut the power then the computer will stop working. And again when we supply power to it then it will start again and it will work for you again. So what is inside the computer and how they do work?

So when we give input it flows through circuits in electrical form or 0 and 1 form. Because the computer does not know anything except 0 and 1. So all the computers,  all electrical devices only know the language of 0 and 1. Similarly, when you click on the buttons of a mouse or touch on the screen of your smart phone, then automatically that input signal will try to find what was behind your click or touch. Suppose there was a folder or a movie, then there generate a signal in binary and that signal will go to the mother board of the smart phone or computer. Then mother board will verify that signal and then it will store in its memory and that memory that is our C.P.U. (Central Processing Unit) will process that signal.

Like, if I click on movie then the C.P.U. will start processing the signal and that signal will go to harddisk where all the data of that movie is stored. So the final output comes to us after a lot of process. And the computer process all these process with the lightning fast speed. You will not know when you pressed the button and when all things processed.

The Operating System

But, also think of that the C.P.U. is having many and many of instructions which is to be performed and have to show you the outputs. So the C.P.U. will start confusing and it will very hard for the C.P.U. to process all the operations. But in reality there is nothing like this. For this there is a manager. And that manager is called O.S.(Operating System). Examples arewindows, Mac, iOS, android, Linux etc.

So O.S. has to manage all the things. O.S. knows everything that what is the power of C.P.U.? How much memory we have? What other devices are connected with our device? How much storage left in our hard disk? And it is the responsibility of the O.S. to perform interaction between hardware and software and tells the C.P.U. that first process this operation quickly and then this. So, by this O.S. synchronize C.P.U. and all other devices to process all the operations.

Now in present the computer is one of the greatest invention on earth. Made by humans. Made by us by using our brain. And today we are very-very much dependent on computers that we cannot imagine our life without computers.
