Digital Radio Tuning Instructions

First Time

To tune these stations in for the first time, select ‘auto-tune’ or ‘scan’ on your Digital Radio. The Dab Ireland MUX 1 along with all of the stations it contains will be found and stored in your radio. From this point on, the stations are available in a simple list on the radio’s display. While each radio model differs, selecting is usually done by turning a knob and pressing ‘Select’.

Occasionally the need to re-tune your set may arise. If you experience any loss or interruption of service please perform the steps outlined above. In addition to this you may want to remove the old stations in your radio set that may no longer be on air. Every set will have the option to ‘prune or remove inactive stations’. Performing this task will ensure your set only displays radio stations that are on air in your area.

Re-tuning your digital radio

From time to time stations move channels or digital radio line-ups change meaning that you may have to retune your digital radio so you can continue to receive your favourite stations.

For all DAB digital radios at your home or in your car, refer to the instructions for your particular product on how you re-tune, delete old station labels and reset your presets. If you don’t have a manual it is often possible to get it online by searching for the make and model of your radio.

Most digital radios can be re-tuned using the following simple instructions:

Press the Auto-Tune or Auto Scan button on your digital radio. It may take a couple of minutes for your radio to update the station list.
Not all digital radios re-tune in the same way. The instructions below cover some other options.

OPTION 1:

  1. Press the Auto Tune or Auto Scan button on your digital radio
  2. The display screen will show 'Autotune Quick scan' / 'Fast Scanning'
  3. As new stations are found the station counter on the right hand side of the display will increase and new stations will be added to the list
  4. This should only take a couple of minutes
  5. Simply scroll through the display to find the stations available to you

OPTION 2:

  1. Press 'Menu' button on your digital radio
  2. Rotate the 'Tune' button until you see 'Autotune' in the display
  3. Select 'Autotune'
  4. As new stations are found the station counter on the right hand side of the display will increase and new stations will be added to the list
  5. This should only take a couple of minutes
  6. Simply scroll through the display to find the stations available to you

Deleting the old "station label"

Where stations are renamed or cease, some radios will keep the old "station label" in the station list which may have a "?" after it. If you want to delete this from the list, there are two ways.

Trim Station list

This is a function which many radios have. “Trim Station List” removes any inactive “station labels” from your list of stations. Simply find and select this option and inactive names will be removed. Don’t forget this should be done after Auto Scan or Autotune so that the list is up to date before trimming

Press and hold the 'Select' or the 'Info' button on your radio until the display shows 'System reset' or 'Factory reset'

A full reset will be performed and your station list will be updated. Please note that any presets will be erased, so you will need to reset them.

For more information, contact your device's manufacturer or refer to the instruction booklet.

How to use your presets

Resetting your radio (as above) may result in your radio losing its presets. If you want to restore your presets, please following the instructions below:

  1. Select your favourite digital radio station on the station list.
  2. Hold down the suitable preset button for 5 seconds.
  3. Release preset button
