The menu option does not show up unless you have something connected to the line out port and only when it's docked. It's kinda lame that it works that way.

I believe when the antenna loses power it does not show it on the screen sounds like there might be a break in the antenna wire or simply came out of socket in the rear of the radio.

The problem could be that the constant power wire for the stereo might not be connected or connected to the switched power. On the radio there are two power wires. One is red(constant power) and yellow(switched power). If the red wire is not connected to constant power then when you turn the key off the radio will lose power and revert back to the factory settings. Check those wires and let me know what you find.

Hello restart90,

1) Press BAND to select between XM DIRECT, XM1 And XM2 bands.
2) Press TUNE << or TUNE >> to select the next higher or lower channel. Press and hold to advance quickly.
3) Press BAND to select XM DIRECT. Enter the desired channel number by using the preset buttons 1-0, then press FUNC for 3 seconds to confirm the channel. Display will show "CH---" if channel is not available and the current channel will be retained.

Hope this helps.

The solution was quite simple: Disable VLC plugin ( or don't install it at all ). Here's how to do it in Firefox:
Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins -> VLC Multimedia Plug-in 0.9.9.0 -> Disable

Try updating our program or you can also try using media player 11 or VLC media player. Make sure you have the latest drivers downloaded.

If you want the code...then .....

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc) 

To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .

If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not available then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

is it plugged into the cigarette lighter? or is it hardwired. If it is plugged into the cigarette lighter, check the fuse for "CIG" in the Main Fuse panel, mostlikely it is blown. Replace. 15AMPS

Sounds to me like a faulty tuner. I would explain all of this to the dealership, and have them replace the tuner. It's not built in to the radio, and is the only thing other than an antenna that could cause this problem, I mean it is POSSIBLE for the issue to be in the radio, but wouldn't be my first guess.

Regardless of what the problem is, it's new, and should be covered under warranty.

Good Luck!

Any new obstructions near the antenna?

Signal on xm is full power (3 bars) stations 1 - 75. All stations 0 to 1 bar above station. Just started happening 2 days ago.

I have to disconnect the power supply (I installed a switch) to shut off entirely the XM power supply as it will wipe-out your AM reception. Nothing you can do other than put in a switch. Even if the XM unit is OFF, you will still get the interference from the power supply.

antennas are susceptible to damage in carwashes.

Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and reconnect. Most of the time this will reset the XM set top box and all will start to work properly.
