  1. Sorry Richard, My notification went in the spam folder. Thanks for this; I'll give it a go. Regards, David
  2. Thanks Richard, Success! Lot's of stations and crystal clear. Now I just have to save some of the stations. Thanks and regards, David

    Alpine TUA 100 DAB antenna socket?

    Sorry; just flagging a notification option. Wish those went on automatically.

    Alpine TUA 100 DAB antenna socket?

    Hi Guys, Quick question - how did you get it to tune as I've finally plugged in an aerial and mine doesn't seem to be doing anything? Thanks, David
  5. So I finally got my new windscreen and have fitted the aerial. How do I get it to tune to anything as I cannot see any option to do that. At the moment it's just radio silence. My apologies as I know I asked before but I cannot find anything when searching. Thanks, David
  6. Apologies for the slow response; the notification email dropped into my spam filter. From memory there is a small square box which sticks to the window below which is the aerial filament which is very fine. Above the box are three wires; aerial, short earth wire which you supposed to ground somewhere and power cable. So, I think it might look a bit crap in the quarter light? Regards, David
  7. Hi Barry, I have an InCarTec aerial which has English/ German instructions. It's a DAB +11dB active windscreen mount (70-924) and when I trialled it seemed to work pretty well. About £35 plus postage. One of the car hifi shops I was recommended to try used this in their own car so I gigured it can't be too bad. Hope that helps. Regards, David

    f10 530d fault code help?

    Thanks Roundy, That doesn't sound too great! To be fair, I haven't noticed a lumpy tickover when you first start the car when cold (and when it is cold outside).
  9. Quick update - I tried the modded aerial and it did not work so back to waiting on my new windscreen so I can put the internal aerial in. Regards, David

    f10 530d fault code help?

    Thanks Matthew, Very useful. I wish I could set the default to send email notifications of replies! The car has since been in for a service with BMW and they never mentioned it so I assume the fault has cleared for now as there is no way they wouldn't have said anything! Thanks and regards, David

    DSP is dead?

    Hi Everyone, I've had a weird weekend with all sorts of problems with my E46 sound system. I had some weird random issues to a loose wire/ connector issue that sent me down all sorts of rabbit holes but the biggest issue was the failure of my Alpine DSP unit which works really well in the E46 via the intravee. Mine has gone dead. I've checked and it is still being given powerand is still earthed. The car no longer recognises it in the screen menu and, until I bypassed it, there was no sound. So I think it has died. Is there anything I can do or anyone that can fix it? Thanks and regards, David

  13. Great news! False alarm sort of as I checked the wires on the quadlock 12 pin blocks and pushed them in a bit and all seems fine now. So whether it is the pins or a breaking/broken wire near quadlock connector I will have to wait and see. Has anyone had similar issues to this? Please see my other query re the Alpine DSP. Thanks, David
  14. Hi Everyone, Has anyone one had a partial sound issue before? My radio, ipod, bluetooth, sat nav and phone all work perfectly but my CDs only play out of the passenger side (I have the double din sat nav unit with the built in CD player) and I've just realised that my TV has no sound. I have an E46 with BM54, built in CD, intravee & ipod/DAB, bluetooth feed, Phone and TV. I normally has an Alpine imprint but that is faulty at the moment. I've been mucking around with the cables going into the multiblock connector on the BM54 (I have an extender cable between the OEM BM54 connector and the BM54 that allows me to feed in the speaker signals from my amplifier - which is fed from pre-outs from the BM54) so was wondering if this could be something as simple as a broken wire? Any good ideas? I'd be very grateful if someone has a similar experience or could suggest a sensible approach to testing. Thanks and regards, David

    Thanks - very useful. In the two manual links is one an earlier car? We have a 2010 model 530D
