It only took a few seconds. I then tried to listen to some stations, but it seems that the content is the same; only the channel names have changed for some channels.

I also connected my SL2 to wifi. Nothing changed there.

But, hey, we can see the upcoming changes to Sirius now. :)

You mean the channel mapping update?
I lost Disorder at 11:17 PM Pacific. The rock section now shows 29 The Loft and 16 Deep Tracks, but the actual audio doesn't match with the XM counterparts.

Disorder just switched-over. Damn it. That channel was my favorite.
I recorded the last hour or so, including the switch. I'll try to cut it down and post it.

As of 11:30pm PT the official switchover as Thelma Houston was the last artist on Movin Easy channel 4, then switched to 40s music

yep... the Beat just changed over to BPM ... and the old strobe is playing some polka. I for one am happy about BPM replacing the beat. My favorite channel is Area 33, and the beat is my 2nd, but they constantly repeat the same stuff over and over. BPM was much better

It will take several days for the Wifi version to catch up, because Zing will have to get those feeds to their servers and then do a wifi channel update to the SL2.

Well, my Sirius radio just updated. Seems Indie Talk has been replaced by POTUS. Looking at the program lineup on the XM site Pete Dominick and Ron Silver made it over but Vinnie Politan didn't :( Disappointed also that The Groove didn't make it over to Sirius as that would've enhanced their R&B offerings. I noticed from the Sirius XM Stars page on the XM site that the "Broadminded" girls from Take 5 made it over...flipping through more channels and looking up program listings as I type. BTW, anyone knows what's going to happen to Dave Marsh now that Disorder is gone?:confused: Also Maxim content is playing on 108 but the channel ID is now a generic "Sirius 108".

Hmm, we'll see. I'd bet the WiFi streams will reflect exactly what's on the Satellite when it switches.

This is kind of off now, but I would still like explinations. I am a little confused, and am new to these forums so sorry if this has been covered. I was under the assumption that channels like pop2k and 20 on 20 would be appearing on Sirius is this not true? Is only XM getting mainly Sirius channels? I’ve also noticed on XM HHN is edited now, and the Sirius channel isn’t matching what the XM one is playing. Are they going to make every channel the same on Sirius and XM? When I listen to shade66 on XM it still calls Shade45 on Sirius, so I am just unsure what is going on. I also can't read there dumb channel guide, because my screen reader can't read there pdf. Thanks!
