Abstract (en)

The method involves setting a first tuner to a program frequency, feeding data received by the first tuner via a first decoder to a control unit, which extracts a time code, setting a second tuner at least temporarily to the first frequency, passing data received by the second tuner via a second decoder to the control unit, which determines periodic time windows in which the second tuner is set to the first frequency from the extracted time code.

Abstract (de)

Es wird ein Verfahren zur Festlegung von Zeitfenstern in einem Rundfunkempfänger vorgeschlagen, der im genormten RDS-TMC enhanced mode arbeitet. Der Rundfunkempfänger selbst weist zwei Tuner auf, nämlich einen Audio-Tuner (1) und einen Daten-Tuner (2), die jeweils mit einem RDS-Decoder (4, 5) verbunden sind. Erfindungsgemäß wird ein über den Audio-Tuner (1) empfangener RDS-Zeitcode zur Bestimmung eines virtuellen Zeitcodes für den Daten-Tuner (2) verwendet. Hierdurch können bestimmte Zeitfenster in RDS-TMC enhanced mode besser ausgenutzt werden. <IMAGE>
