Default DAB slowing down

Really strange issue but has anybody else experienced the sound slowing down, then speeding back up when listening to DAB?

Any fixes out there before I go to the main dealer?

Tends to happen on longer journeys and affects all stations.

Your car is still under warranty so I would have no hesitation in going straight back to the dealer with the problem.

Can you explain what you mean by "slowing down"? Do you mean the pitch drops?

In my experience dealers have little knowledge of these things.

Yep, exactly that, the music slows down and the pitch drops.

There is talk in the SMEG+ Map and Speed Camera Update Procedure thread about firmware updates for problems with the DAB radio. Possibly this is one of the effects that is fixed.

It's still a dealer job if it's under warranty though. Although the chances are small, if the job goes tits-up and you brick your radio doing it yourself that would be your (expensive) problem. Let them take the responsibility.

Something I have not encountered at any time. I have upgraded to the latest operating system now but didn't have that before.

Haven't seen any reference to that particular problem in the other thread either.

Not specifically, just general complaining about DAB and whether or not the problem had bee fixed. I didn't take a huge amount of notice as my radio complaint has always been the poor FM performance.

I don't think these radios are anything special, seems to me a stand alone radio always gives better results.
My FM is very slow to change using the RDS when you drive out of range.
Then of course I have the DAB cutting out completely whenever I select reverse gear.

Ah, your special car. I'm just about to nip out in our 308. I'll pay special attention to DAB in reverse.

DAB remains on during reversing manoeuvres until the reversing sensors kick in when it drops to a very low level. I'm wondering whether there's something about your reversing sensor setup that's prompting the problem.

Apologies to the OP for drifting off your topic.
