Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method and a system (SYS) for managing an alarm signal in a system comprising a first internal clock. The system is intended to cooperate with a portable player (PP) comprising a second internal clock and a screen (S). The method comprises the steps of: - setting the time of said first internal clock at the time of said second internal clock, - selecting a given time value being displayed on said screen, - memorizing said given time value in said system, - setting the time of said second internal clock at the time of said first internal clock, - triggering an alarm signal on said system when the time of said first internal clock reaches said given time value. According to this method, when the portable player is docked to the system,the system according to the invention does not require its own screen because the screen of the portable player is used to display the current time and the alarm time during setting it, resulting in a reduction of the costs of the system.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système (SYS) permettant de gérer un signal d'alarme dans un système comprenant une première horloge interne. Le système est prévu pour coopérer avec un lecteur portable (PP) comprenant une seconde horloge interne et un écran (S). Le procédé comprend les étapes consistant - à régler l'heure de ladite première horloge interne sur l'heure de ladite seconde horloge interne, - à sélectionner une valeur temporelle donnée affichée sur ledit écran, - à mémoriser ladite valeur temporelle donnée dans ledit système, - à régler l'heure de ladite seconde horloge interne sur l'heure de ladite première horloge interne, - à déclencher un signal d'alarme sur ledit système lorsque l'heure de ladite première horloge interne atteint ladite valeur temporelle donnée. Selon ce procédé, lorsque le lecteur portable est fixé au système, le système de l'invention n'a pas besoin de son propre écran, car l'écran du lecteur portable permet d'afficher l'heure en cours et l'heure d'alarme pendant son réglage, ce qui entraîne une réduction des coûts du système.
