If you have a MDS/ADS or KDS streamer only I'm afraid you can't - however MDSM/ADSM/KDSM allows you to plug tuner into one of the inputs.....

Yes, understood. I have a Majik DSM, but where does control come from? Asset?

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
You can plug an analogue tuner in to MSDM

You tune it the station you want to hear on the tuner (twiddling the knobs) & control the volume from your MSDM remote. You will get all the benefits of Space Optimisation too.

I get dropouts from BBC occasionally, but still have to pay the extortionate licence fee. I hope nothing is dropped when I listen to commentary of us bowling to Australia on Thursday.

Digital Juke Box & KLP12 into KK/1D+KCT through SD9s
MDSM3 through MG12s

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
This may be completely unrelated, but...

Yesterday, after a couple of minutes of BBC local radio dropping out, followed by it sounding like a skipping CD, I went into Tunein and refreshed the URL with the latest one I found there.

So far, the same station has been dropout free. Cool

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
Radio 4 still has regular drop outs.
Not good for their comedy stuff.

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
Will look forward to trying that beta tomorrow - I’m still having issues with the Beeb.
