    XM Radio

    Does anyone else with an XM Radio have this problem? I'm sitting here listening to the baseball game on channel 183, and all of a sudden I get slammed over to Channel 1. This has happened five times today. What a nuisance.

    I have had that happen, but not nearly as frequently as that. Maybe once or twice a week. It's from a satellite so it's easy for things like that to happen.
    Still I would contact XM and see if there is a problem with your radio or antenna.

    I have an XM Inno, and have never had that problem. (so far)

    I highly recommend the Inno..I am a marathoner and it goes with me when I'm on training runs.

    I just bought an Inno on ebay and the car kit. I would recommend it also. I had that problem with it going to XM channel 1 when I first activated my radio, but come to find out, I had a bad radio. Pioneer sent me a new one. Hope this isn't the case with yours.

    Well, if it is the radio, it's still under warranty. I'll contact Pioneer. Thanks.

    Yes, normally that happens if you lose signal for a spell. It always kicks me to channel 1 when I stop at a certain gas station under the awning.

    I've got XM factory in my car... I've never had that problem. I may lose signal if I'm in town or going through a drive thru but I've never had it change channels.

    I contacted XM, and they told me to refresh my radio. I have to go to the website, then they will reactivate me. I'll try that this weekend.

    It is simple to refresh. Go to this LINK:

    Let us know if it works.

    I did that several times before I ended up having to contact Pioneer and sending it back due to a bad radio. Hope that's all it is.

    This happened to me this morning. As I stated in a previous post, I just had to adjust the antenna. I hope your new device gives you better luck.

    Re: XM Radio

    I have the Inno and it goes back to channel 1 everytime I lose the signal. I think it's normal. It is annoying though. Sometimes I find myself listening to the preview channel for 10 minutes before I realize that I had switched.
