Question re DAB / FM switching on T Cross -

I listen to local radio stations e.g. BBC Radio Devon in the UK on DAB, but when I go into a bad reception area it does not switch to FM.

If I listen to national radio stations e.g. BBC Radio 2 the switching between DAB and FM works perfectly.

Anyone else experienced this or know a fix?

I understand after some research that some radio stations use different SId codes for their DAB services to their FM RDS PI codes which is the reason for the issue.

If radio stations used the same SId and PI codes then stations such as BBC Radio Devon (and others) would switch from FM to DAB / DAB to FM dependent on signal quality.

So it seems this is another digital service standard that will take years to sort out, the same as watching the news and having to go from 101 (HD) to 1 to get the local news.

Great!
