Abstract

This paper describes a new broadcast tuning mechanism whereby tuner logic "learns" or is conditioned to, a listener or viewer's tuning habits, and based on these habits, preemptively tunes to a specific frequency or station when power is applied. Secondly, it describes a means to allow the user to preset such time-based preferences, removing all ambiguity from the selection process
