3. If this is the first time that the radio has been used a scan of the Band
III DAB channels will be carried out. The first station in the list of
stations found during scanning will be played. The display will show
the station name.
4. During the scanning process the display will show progress of the
station search. The number on the right of the display is the number
of stations that have been found. When the scan is completed the first
station (in numeric-alpha order 0....9, A....Z) will be selected.
5. If no signals are found then it may be necessary to relocate your radio

Bluetooth mode
The Bluetooth mode on your radio allows you to play audio, play sound
from video files and stream music from Bluetooth capable devices such as
your moblie phone, computer, tablet etc. through your radio's loudspeakers.
●
When a Bluetooth enabled device such as your Blutune 65 radio is in
a 'discoverable' state other Bluetooth devices can detect, pair with or
connect to it.
●
'Bluetooth pairing' occurs when two Bluetooth enabled devices agree
to establish a connection and communicate with each other.
●
Your radio will flash the Bluetooth indicator light on the front
panel when it is discoverable or when it is trying to connect to a
previously paired Bluetooth device. When a device is paired with
and connects to your radio, the Bluetooth indicator light on the
radio will remain lit.
Bluetooth connectivity performance may vary depending on the connected
Bluetooth devices. Please refer to the Bluetooth capabilities of your device
before connecting to your radio. All features may not be supported on
some paired Bluetooth devices.
A Bluetooth connection can provide a link for audio up to a distance of
approximately ten metres. When pairing two Bluetooth enabled devices,
for convenience, we recommend they should be no more than 2 to 3
metres apart.The presence of other functioning Bluetooth devices during
connection may lead to operational difficulties.
Bluetooth is a short-range radio communication system and generally
Bluetooth devices can communicate with each other clearly within a regular
sized room or office. The reliability of a Bluetooth connection between
different rooms will greatly depend upon the construction of the building.
25
Bluetooth communication range may be substantially reduced if the signal
passes through a solid object. Human bodies, brick and concrete walls,
heavy furniture or bookcases will all reduce the operational range of your
Bluetooth devices to a greater or lesser extent. Glass, dry-wall or wood
paneled walls and office partitions may have a less severe but noticeable
effect. Metal pipes, foil-lined plasterboard, metal window frames and
domestic wiring can also have an effect. You should position your Bluetooth
devices closer to each other if you observe communication difficulties.
WiFi networks and cordless phones generally use similar radio frequencies
to Bluetooth and may interfere with one another. If any interference is
noticed, then try relocating the radio or one of the other devices.
The Bluetooth capabilities of your radio enable it to receive audio from many
Bluetooth capable devices including mobile phones, personal computers
and tablets. Only one Bluetooth device can be connected to your radio
at a time. It supports the following Bluetooth profiles and functionality.
●
Your radio supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) which
is a stereo audio connection that streams stereo music from PCs,
mobile phones etc. SBC and AAC audio codecs are supported.
●
Your radio supports AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile)
which allows your radio to control music playback from the connected
device.
Note: Some mobile phones may temporarily disconnect from your radio
when you make or receive calls. Some devices may temporarily mute their
Bluetooth audio streaming when they receive text messages, emails or for
other reasons unrelated to audio streaming. Such behaviour is a function
of the connected device and does not indicate a fault with your radio.
Connecting Bluetooth devices
1. Ensure that the Bluetooth capability on your phone, tablet or PC is
enabled. You may need to refer to the user documentation for your
device, since the method will vary with each device.
3
Bluetooth
discoverable
2. Press and release the On / Standby button to switch on the radio.
3. Repeatedly, press and release the Mode button on your radio (press
the Bluetooth button on remote) until the Bluetooth mode is selected.
Your radio will show that it is 'discoverable' by flashing the Bluetooth
indicator and showing 'Bluetooth discoverable...' on the display. The
display may change to show the time and date, but the Bluetooth
indicator will continue to flash.

4. Using the Bluetooth settings of your phone, tablet or PC direct it to
search for 'discoverable' devices. After a few seconds, you should see
a device named 'Blutune 65'. Just occasionally it may take longer for
the radio to be found by your device.
5. Select 'Blutune 65' to cause your phone, tablet or PC to pair with your
radio and to establish a connection.
6. Once the connection is established, the Bluetooth indicator on the
display will stop flashing and will remain lit. A message will be displayed
briefly confirming the name of the connected device.
You can now begin playing music from your smart-phone, tablet, etc.
Some Bluetooth devices may require a 'Passkey' (an authentication key)
in order to establish a link between devices. A passkey is similar to a
password, although you only need to use the passkey once to establish
a link. If your device asks for a passkey to be able to pair with your radio
then enter a code of 0000 (four zeroes).
26
Playing audio files in Bluetooth mode
When you have successfully connected your radio with your chosen
Bluetooth device you can start to play your music using the controls on
the device.
Volume

1. Once playing has started adjust the volume to the required setting
using the Volume controls on your radio or the connected Bluetooth

If you adjust the volume control on the radio but you find that the volume
from the radio is not sufficient, it may be that the volume setting of the
connected device needs to be increased.
3. The audio player in your phone, tablet or PC may be able to respond to
the Play/Pause, Next track and Previous track buttons on the radio.

Title, Album, Artist, Format and time and date details on the display.
Note: If you need to set the alarm whilst in Bluetooth mode you will need
to use the remote control as the alarm buttons on the radio are used for
playback control.
27
Connecting and disconnecting a Bluetooth device
You can only have one Bluetooth device connected to the radio at any
one time although it may be paired with several devices. Once you have a
Bluetooth enabled device connected to your radio it cannot be interrupted
by another Bluetooth device unless you choose to break the connection.
1. To connect to a new device, press and hold the Bluetooth Pair button
(Bluetooth button on remote control) until the display shows "Bluetooth
discoverable". The Bluetooth indicator on the front panel will flash and
the radio will then be discoverable by other devices. The radio will
remain discoverable while the indicator continues to flash.
2. You may then pair the radio with the new device using its Bluetooth
settings (the radio will be listed on the device as 'Blutune 65'). The
name of the newly connected device will be briefly shown on the radio's
display. You may then play music from the new device through the
radio.
3. To connect to a previously paired device, press and release the
Bluetooth Pair button on the radio to access the menu options. The
display will show the name of the currently paired device.
4. Then press and release the Bluetooth Pair button on the radio to
step through a list of previously connected devices. To connect to a
previously connected device, press and release the Select button
when the device's name is displayed. The radio will then connect to
the device. If automatic reconnection fails, then you will generally be
able to connect simply by selecting the 'Blutune 65' pairing in your
device's Bluetooth settings.

Alarms
Your radio has 2 separate alarms which can be set to wake you to DAB, FM radio, iPod or buzzer alarm. Each alarm can be set to sound once, daily,
on weekdays or at weekends. The alarms can be set whether the radio is on or in standby mode. In the event of a power interruption your radio has
a built in memory chip that will maintain your alarm settings for when the power is restored.
The way in which the alarm settings are accessed varies slightly according to whether you use the alarm buttons on the product or on the remote
control. The alarm buttons on the product may be used when the radio is in standby, or in use in DAB, FM, or Auxiliary Input modes (but not iPod or
Bluetooth modes). The alarm button on the remote control may be used when the radio is in use regardless of the operating mode, but it has a different
function when the radio is in standby - see page 33.
After gaining access to the settings for the chosen alarm (1 or 2) the setting method is the same for all operating modes of the product and you may use
the controls on the product or the buttons on the remote control equally. If no buttons are pressed for 10 seconds, the radio will exit the alarm setup.
Setting an alarm
1. To set an alarm using the controls on the product (if the radio is in standby,
or in DAB, FM or Auxiliary input mode) press and release the Alarm 1 or
