1) It doesn't really matter to me, but does anyone know when BOXM will appear in internet mode?

2) In Internet Mode, does anyone notice how sometimes, when you choose a preset that isn't the first one, it automatically goes back to the top preset? Say you choose preset #5 by scrolling to it. Sometimes, when you go back to the preset list, it'll show preset #1.

3) BOXM doesn't match up with the XM numbers, does it? I've never had XM, so I wouldn't know, but does anyone know plans for when they'll make BOXM the same channel numbers as the "real XM channels?"

BOXM = best of xm.

1) Whenever Sirius gets around to it.

2) I've never noticed but will watch out for it and let you know.

3) No. The Best of Sirius also don't match up except for Howard 100 and Howard 101.

I always thought the updating of internet radio was up to Yahoo. For whatever reason, they always seemed to be faster with the internet side of the radio than the satellite side.

As for best of Sirius/XM, I suppose it really doesn't matter. It would be nice, but eventually, it'll all be the same.

Its actually Zing. But I think Sirius insists on many levels of approvals for even trivial changes. These usually take a couple of weeks assuming anybody at Sirius has initiated it at all (they may be busy with gutting XM right now and haven't gotten around to it).

Have you noticed it? Go to any preset far down the list, maybe one of the "B" or "C" presets to really see what I mean. Listen for a few seconds, then press the "back" button to go to the preset list.

I haven't been in internet mode for a bit. I will try this weekend for sure. :)
