New F10 550Xi / Bang and Olufsen not working

Hi Everyone, new to the board. I just picked up my 2013 550xi today and I really like the car. I traded in my 2007 M5 and honestly I am missing the sound/HP already! But I just got back in the car and the B&G radio is no longer working. Its really odd, I can select a channel in Sat or AM/Fm but no sound and the speaker will not pop up. Not a great way to start out with this car, any ideas? Did I hit a mute button?

The volume knob is the mute button. Press the knob and see what happens.

After the car sat for an hour the radio came back on. Really strange. Hope it doesn't happen again. Anyone else have the B&G radio? I think the radio in my E60 M5 sounded much better.

B&G radio? I guess you mean B&O loudspeakers?

HA! Yea, typo. I meant B&O. Some music sounds great, but I remember the Sat radio in my M5 sounded insane, nice and deep. Maybe the Sub in the 550 isn't as big? When I listen to music through my I-phone it sounds much better...

Sat radio will sound of like crap regardless of the sound system. It's highly compressed. You'll have to listen to music off USB/CD/iPod/iPhone if you want it to sound better.
