Time setting

Post by ajh » Sat Apr 03, 2021 10:53 pm

My time didn’t update automatically when the clocks went forward the other day with rds. It’s set for auto updates but doesn’t work. Has anyone else had this problem?

I find you have to be on a BBC radio channel for it to work, as already said.

As stated, the time is updated via the RDS signal from the different radio stations. If the station you listen to, does not send the time or they forgot to change it, it will not change.

Thanks for the suggestions. I kept it on Radio2 DAB for about 20 minutes with no luck. I then did the same with Radio 4 DAB again - no update. I then switched to Radio 4 FM and it updated within a couple of minutes - strange!

It only updates on FM stations for me, never really use DAB myself.

Just checked, RDS works with FM only and doesn’t work with DAB. Now I know :-)

Mine updated okay on Radio 2 DAB, after something like 10 - 20 minutes.

I am not sure why models with NAV cannot update the time using the GPS signal..
