DAB Reception

Post by Vipers » Sat May 28, 2016 7:28 pm

Hi all, I collected my car last week. Ever since when I switch the radio on on a DAB station I initially get no sound and a message saying 'No reception'. The reception usually appears after a few minutes but I do find even then it sometimes crackles and drops out. The FM reception is fine. Has anyone else experienced this issue anywhere in the UK? I never experienced this problem in my last car.

Thanks.

I would lay money on the fact that the DAB has not been tuned to your local repeaters.

Go into the radio screen and you will see an entry to refresh station list. Do this see how you get on.

Hi, I've gone into the settings screens for both DAB and FM and I can't see an obvious option to refresh the station list. Is this something you've done?

Thanks.

So far the DAB reception on mine has been excellent.
Listening yesterday to Jazz FM (DAB) on the National list of stations I had to turn the volume down as the reception was just outstanding .The crisp clarity made it feel like the bands were in the car!
I do rate the Meridian(MY16) sound system as well. Unlike others,I have found the bass to be good , even with the setting below maximum....and I come from a heavy rock music background.

Done the refresh many times, in fact just gone out and done one to check where everything is for you.

This for the NON pro version of entertainment system, pro may be the same.

Bring up the media screen and make sure the source is DAB.

Then bring up Stations and you will see an option to Refresh Station List. follow this and you will will pick up your local repeaters. It takes a couple of minutes to refresh. Even if you don't get any local repeaters you should still get the national ones unless you are in an area of very poor coverage.

Likewise Bob.
Earlier in the year "absolute" and it's stations moved around and I found a new national DAB network they were now on.
The Dab network often changes so it's worth doing a refresh once in a while.

I have the Pro version and it appears to be different to the system you have and there is no option to Refresh Station List.

Thank you for finding this for me. Unfortunately the InCotrol Touch Pro is different in my 2016 XE-S than shown in this video.

Many thanks
Stuart.
