Has anyone had any problems with their DAB radio intermittently muting?
It doesn't stay muted for long but it's very irritating. Sometimes it's as often as every 30 seconds and other times it stays on for much longer before muting again. Totally random.
It doesn't happen when using AM/FM only DAB.
Any thoughts on a fix would be appreciated.
Cheers

It is DAB signal quality. It is very binary in the way that it works. Too low a level and the DAB will mute. One option is to enable network radio so if DAB does fail it falls back to the network.

You live or travel in an area where the DAB signal is weak or has blind spots, therefore the muting is normal. You will see on the MMI screen the icon/s change during this period of muting that its lost signal.

Thanks for the replies. I had no idea DAB radios were affected in that way. Greatly relieved if that's the case as I thought there was something wrong with my radio.
Cheers
