DAB Retune receiver

Post by Danaitchison » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:09 am

Hey, not sure if right area.

Certain DAB Stations have been showing “please retune radio stations or you will lose certain stations after Feb 11th”. Or words to that affect.

I’ve started my car today and certain stations have gone and only show “retune receiver” and a message from the radio station tells you to retune.

However, I’ve tried “Update station list” and it stays the same.

I’ve also tried restore radio settings.

Any help please!

Strange. I saw this the other day and ran an update of the station list, and all was well afterwards. It took quite a while to do it though..

My car is doing the same. Update station list takes a while but nothing changes. Its being serviced next week so have asked the garage to have a look when it's in. I'm starting to miss Kisstory.

I lost kisstory too, but it seemed like the favourite shortcut was pointing to it's old station. Go into the browse and find kisstory again and set it as a favourite, worked for me!

I tried that when it first happened and couldn't find it. Looked again today and there was Kisstory, I'm a happy man now. Thank you. Also found Magic Chilled again just for when I'm in that sort of mood.

I'm the same with Magic Chilled, that station is underrated! :D

Yes, it's not a problem with the car, the stations have moved so you need to retune to still get them.
