FM radio RDS - question

I have a question about RDS function of the FM radio tuner: is this function supported in WMC radio application?

(RDS is Radio Data System, enabled to add short text info to the FM broadcast, usually the name of the station, latest news, title of the song playing etc.)

I don’t think so. At least, I’ve never seen it when I used FM radio in WMC, on the same stations that show RDS data in my car.

If you are interested in radio, I recommend the RTL-SDR USB device. Doesn’t have anything to do with Windows Media Center, but it is a fun tool. I’ve even been using it to listen to HD radio lately.
