Abstract: A receiver for a digital broadcast terminal includes first and second receiving units, each for receiving a digital broadcast signal. Each of the first and second receiving units typically includes an antenna, a tuner, and an analog/digital (A/D) converter. The receiver further includes a control unit configured to determine reception environment based upon the digital broadcast signal, and to selectively operate the first and the second receiving units based upon the reception environment. A method for controlling a digital broadcast receiving terminal includes receiving a digital broadcast signal at first and second receiving units, determining reception environment based upon the digital broadcast signal, and selectively operating the first and second receiving units based upon the reception environment.
