Sirius radio keeps updating channels

I've seen a few threads regarding lost SMX presets but not many reports of this problem being fixed besides a complete MMI replacement.My 2012 is having the same problem others reported, SXM says its updating then I lose all my Sirius XM presets, FM and AM seem fine. Obviously the car is out of warranty but would like to have some options before calling the dealer. Spent a long time on the telephone with Sirius technical staff. After I turned this off under Settings and reverted to a numerical channel listing, all is fine. Spent a long time on the telephone with Sirius technical staff.

sirius radio keeps updating channels-10

Not complaining at all, im enjoying the freebie but was just curious if this happens a lot or maybe a reason as to why.subscription If it matters my radio is a Jensen JHD3620. Your receiver never got the 'kill' signal from Sirius XM, or at least not yet, and it will remain active until it does.

The more you listen, the more of a chance it will receive the deactivation signal and you'll lose all programming but the preview channel.

Although I don't really use it since I have Rhapsody subscription with superior music selection and sound quality.

That's most likely because breaking XM's encryption doesn't pose any security or privacy concerns; the only motivation would be theft of service.

It did turn on in full for a period of 3 months a couple years ago for no apparent reason, but other than that it has been dead. I have an XM radio that receives the free previews periodically, but my Sirius radio never receives one.

But it is back to being entirely free in full for some reason.

It turned on when my two XM radios with previews turned off.

when i got the renewal letter i just stopped using it. I get letters every other week about new deals they would like me to take advantage of with my radio ESN listed an all that jazz.

I thought maybe it was some type of preview of the service to entice me into subscribing again but for the last month its still active and doesn't have the scrolling screen with the telephone number.

Was just shocked playing around with my radio in my truck to find my Sirius/XM service was still fully active.
