DAB Issue

Post by CharlesKing92 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:12 pm

Ive had my Astra since Oct 2016, Its a 65 Plate, I drive 170 miles every Friday and Sunday and during the journey i always lose my DAB signal which then stays in "searching" for the remainder of the journey. I know there can be issues with Reception but it just seems strange that once i lose the signal it doesn't then re-tune and find the signal.

Anyone else that has had this problem id appreciate a solution :)

Kind Regards,

Charles.

On mine it switches to FM if DAB fades, then switches back to DAB when it can.

Sounds faulty to me. Can you receive FM ok?

Mine has started acting up badly lots of gaps with no sound, dab to dab linking, the radio is pretty unusable at the moment, I was wondering if it could be a loose connection somewhere as it wasn't like this a month ago.

Yeah i seem to get FM fine, i also find that if i use the ApplePlay and then change the source to DAB i cannot receive any signal at all.

Strange... Might ring up my main dealership see if theres an update of some sort.

I live in North Wales and sometimes it sounds like there is a snooker ball rolling around behind the radio also when I pass B T main exchange the signal just stops????
