    I'll wait to complain, but if I have to reset the 10 presets I have in my car, that will be a PITA.

    Kind of annoyed already, when I bought my Mustang I purchased Lifetime Sirius and wanted the best of XM at the same time. They wouldn't do it and the channels wouldn't show up on my radio. Got in today and magically the stations are there now but will be moving to new numbers that I cannot get.

    I did save a bunch of presets on all my radios so hopefully they all transfer.

    My older Delfi XMskifi2 that I now have hooked up in my home reprogrammed its-self. All the presets are working on new channel numbers. Just turned it on and gave it 15 minutes to download the new channels.
    I have a newer unit in my truck I'll check later.

    My Ford OEM nav radio didn't reprogram the presets, so I had to spend all of 30 seconds doing it manually. I already had the new channel numbers for my favorites memorized, so that wasn't a big deal.

    My Pioneer AVIC-D3 in my truck automatically did it for me...haven't checked the wife's factory unit in her Tahoe, will do when I get home, or if she drives it today and can't find her station, I'll get a phone call :lol:

    Both the car tuner and the one hooked to my AVR updated automatically. This is XM.

    None of the channels previously tagged as clear music 'cm' remain tagged as such. I also noticed that the pdf channel guide has the music channels in a "Commercial-Free" category. Has the Clear Programming gone away?

    They're listed separately under the "More" category.

    Ended up working out well for me, everything changed automatically and the XM stations showed up in my car. Still trying to find a few stations I didn't preset and they of course are the only stations that aren't listing the new stations numbers on the pad data but I do have a general idea of where they are since the companies grouped stuff better.

    I didn't have to change any of my presets, some of my friends had to change their for stations that were combined or eliminated.

    Depended on the radio as well. Mine all changed automatically, my wife's Ford factory installed model did not.

    Unfortunately, I turned on my radio in the car this morning to hear the trail end of a hotels.com commercial. I guess they aren't commercial free after all.

    I pay for a total of four XM devices:

    • '11 Infiniti M 37X - XM Radio, XM Weather, XM Traffic (My car)
    • '08 Honda CRV (Wife's car)
    • Yamaha RX-V663 AVR w/Audiovox XM Mini-Tuner add-on (Home)
    • Old XM Roadie Tuner (@My mother's house)

    All of them automatically switched their presets to the new channel assignments

    2 of our 3 updated automatically. I think the 2009 X5 failed because that stuff is stored in the key. I had to re-enter everything for both keys.

    I was listening to Radio Margaritaville on my SkyFi2 and the channel number changed from 55 to 24 automatically right at midnight. I don't use presets but the ones I had set did change over.

    The one that came in my 2009 GMC Acadia the presets didn't change. However when I press the preset button with the old number, it goes to the new number. If I wanted to change the presets to the new channels is easy. Just hold down that button for 4 seconds and it changes. I'm not since I know the old numbers. :)

    Who said they were commercial free? The ClearChannel stations haven't been commercial free for years. That's why they're under the "More" category, and not the "Commercial Free Music" category.
