The OFDM symbols include within a repeating time frame a signalling OFDM symbol and one or more data bearing OFDM symbols, the signalling OFDM symbol including a pre-amble guard interval and a post-amble guard interval, the pre-amble and the post-amble guard intervals being formed by copying samples from a useful part of the signalling OFDM symbol in the time domain. The receiver includes a signalling and guard detector, which includes a correlator comprising a first branch which includes a first moving averaging filter, which is arranged to form pre-amble average correlated samples by averaging a value of a plurality of pre-amble correlated samples within a moving window, the plurality of samples averaged within the moving window corresponding to a temporal length of the post-amble (Tb), a second branch which includes a second moving averaging filter, which is arranged to form post-amble average correlated samples by averaging a value of a plurality of post-amble correlated samples within a moving window, the plurality of samples averaged within the moving window corresponding to a temporal length of the pre-amble (Tc), a combiner, which is arranged to combine the averaged pre-amble correlated samples and the averaged post-amble correlated samples to form output correlation samples. A post processing detector can detect the signalling OFDM symbol and moreover a synchronisation point derived from a centre of the signalling OFDM symbol with improved accuracy. The receiver finds application, for example, with DVB-T2 in detecting the P12-09-2010

20110310305SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HISTORY-BASED DECISION MAKING IN A TELEVISION RECEIVER - Various embodiments facilitate history-based decision making in television receivers, such as set-top boxes. In one embodiment, a history-based decision facilitator (“HBDF”) is provided. The HBDF facilitates decision making in a television receiver based on device history data received from the television receiver. In one embodiment, the HBDF receives an indication of an operation to be performed by the television receiver, the operation including one or more parameters. In response, the HBDF determines values for the one or more parameters, based on device history data received from the television receiver. The HBDF then provides the determined parameter values to the television receiver. In one example application, the HBDF can determine a tuner of the television receiver to utilize for recording a program, based on the history of the television receiver, such as that the determined tuner is typically idle during the scheduled recording time period.12-22-2011
