Title: METHOD OF AND APPARATUS ADAPTED FOR CONTROLLING A POWER CONSUMPTION OF A MEDIA STREAM REPRODUCING DEVICE
Abstract:
A method of controlling a power consumption of a media stream reproducing device having a wide input voltage range power supply includes receiving a media stream and providing an output signal representative of the received media stream. A mains supply voltage of the media stream receiver is monitored and, in case the measured mains supply voltage falls below a first level the method further includes one or more of providing an output signal representative of a message indicating the reduced mains supply voltage and advising a user to reduce the power consumption of at least the media stream reproducing device, or providing an output signal controlling a first reduction of the power consumption of the media stream reproducing device, or controlling a recording device operatively connected to the media stream reproducing device to record the received media stream for later reproduction.
