PR 1.1 (2009.51)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Start Media Player, play a song and enable FM transmitter
2. Use an RDS capable radio receiver to check the result (e.g. FM Radio Player
on a second N900)
The RDS specification strictly prohibits the use of dynamic RDS PS text:
IEC 62106:1999 standard, section 3.2.2:
[...] These changes which may occur a few times a day and have a duration of
anything between a few minutes and several hours, are acceptable, but any other
dynamic changes to PS are NOT acceptable and may cause a safety hazard by
distracting a vehicle driver. [...] As a result, dynamic PS and PTYN
transmissions are expressly forbidden.
The 64 character RDS RT field may be used for dynamic text, instead.
Media Player violates the RDS specification and endangers vehicle drivers by
abusing the PS field for dynamic text.
Same issue as bug 8396.
