Re: If DAB is faster than FM

@IaS, well, to me that sounds as if it might well be a capacitor problem. The electrolytic capacitors are used to filter the DC power supplies, including to the processor. If they've gone kaput, then the noise and ripple on the supplies will get worse which could well lead to the random reboots you mention. The processor is crashing, leading to random reboots, and sometimes lock up. It's worth a quick look, especially if you're attached to the thing! :-)

p.s. There are loads of second-hand ones for sale on the FleaBays! Cheers --->
