    I was wondering if anyone else has noticed that the sound cuts out at random points for maybe a second. I hear this on both the home and car receivers. I am listening to XM76.

    When I had satellite radio this was back when XM and Sirius were 2 different companies.

    Anyway when I drove on a road lined with big trees the signal would become lost and the audio would drop at that point.

    At home if I had the aerial in the wrong place the sound/signal did the same thing.

    So the above might be why you are experiencing this.

    I do not miss those days.

    I listen to XM mostly in my car and have not experienced that. I'm in the Chicago area.

    My xm in my vehicle is doing the same thing for about 2 weeks now. I thought the antenna was going bad. I bought a new one but haven't installed it yet.

    Since it is happening on both the home and car receivers, not antenna related.

    Currently visiting son's condo in Tampa & noticed the same thing. Using an XM plug & play & thought that the signal was dropping. Not so. No satellite signal but terrestrial is pegged. No problems in car.

    I live in western IL and have this problem with both cars and home receivers with my Delphi SkyFi2. I have not had this problem previously, so do not think it is an equipment problem. Probably need to contact Sirius/XM for an explanation. :(
