: An interesting problem

About two weeks and approximately 1000 miles ago, my CTS-V XM radio lost all of the preset labels. The presets themselves were OK; that is, pressing the preset button took the radio to the correct channel. All of the labels had been replaced with channel numbers. Some of the numbers were correct, others were incorrect (e.g., some were labeled Channel 0). I restored the labels in the normal way by setting the radio to the channel and then holding the preset button until the label was set (e.g., Channel 40 changed to Deep Trac). The next day it happened again. I again restored the labels and waited to see what would happen on day three. The problem has not occurred again. Has anyone else observed this behavior?

I had it happen twice. Did not change anything and about 10 min. it went back to the preset. Decided it was an XM issue not the car.

It happend to me once.

While I was driving, I went to adjust my side mirror and accidently hit the Driver #2 button and it changed all the preset labels on my radio. The stations were still there, it just messed with the lables.

Happened to me too. Same result, by the time I got back in from work, problem solved. I love it when problems solve themselves ;)

The problem that has not fixed itself is the DSP that can be set for each channel. I love the "driver seat" selection and "spacious" as a close second, but they seem to change back to defaults when I start the car.

I haven't read up on this issue, just dropping my $.02

It happened to me once but the next time I drove the car it was back to normal so I assumed it was an XM issue as well.

It happened to me last week. My wife got into the car and changed it to Driver 2. When I got back in the car and changed it back to Driver 1, all the presets on the XM went to Channel 1 and stayed that way. After a couple of hours, I reset them.

That's an easy fix and it is in your manual.

First select the station you want to change. Then go in and change the DSP to whatever you want. Then exit back to the main radio screen and press and hold the preset button for that station again to save it.

Bingo, now each station you can set what DSP you want for that station.

Neat, ain't it ;)

I have never had this issue, however I did cancel XM over 8mos. ago and continue to get service.
