Its true, they can now zap them. I learned that first hand a few days ago.
the key was to remove the antenna before deactivating the receiver.
when i said zap them i was referring to the fact that they are now sending signals to kill radio's that have already been deactivated but are still receiving a signal.
My very first XM radio was a Sony Plug and Play. I kept it for about a year before I bought a Delphi SkyFi. About 2 months after I switched from the Sony to the Delphi, I sold it to a friend. He gave it to an in-law and when they went to install it, he said it was still getting service...:right:
I have an XM MyFi which I deactivated over 3 years ago. I still power it up from time to time and it still works fine and still gets all programming.
