1. A television receiver capable of being operated via a network, comprising:

  • an operation receiver that receives an operation given via the network;

    an operation acceptor that accepts an operation that is directly given without using the network;

    a restriction determiner that determines restrictions for the operation given via a network and the operation directly given without using the network, each operation restriction being determined based on the substance of the operation and the origin of the operation so as to avoid conflict between the operation given via the network and the operation directly given without using the network, wherein there is no simultaneous restriction of operations with different origins; and

    a receiver-side controller that executes control associated with the operation when the restriction determining section determines not to restrict the operation.
