At this time, tape playback will stop and CD playback will pause. However, external equipment (MD/DVD) will remain as it is. The EON function does not operate during recording (including dubbing). When the transmission of the selected program contents ends in case of automatic reception with the EON function, return will be made to the status directly before operation of the EON function. When tape or CD playback has been interrupted, it will be continued from the point of interruption.

Waiting for information while a RDS station without EON function is tuned
If the EON indicator does not light with the RDS station in steps 3 and 4, the tuner will wait for only the desired information broadcast from the tuned RDS station provided that the desired information has been selected in the previous step.
TP (Traffic Program) indicator
The lighting of the TP indicator indicates that the currently tuned station or a station in the same network as it broadcasts traffic announcement programs. If the TP indicator already lights with the current station, you can listen to the traffic announcement program through the station without making reservation with the EON function.
