    I was listening to Lithium on XM 54 trying to hear a new channel bumper, and tuned to it on Sirius Internet Radio on Lithium 24. The two channels were playing completely different songs.
    I checked some other 'crossover' channels, and found the Pulse 26 (XM) was playing 'Staind - Believe' while Pulse 9 (SIRIUS) is playing Leona Lewis - Better in Time.

    It appears none of the Sirius channel #s have changed yet.

    Yep, this was discussed in a few other threads, from what we can gather...

    XM is broadcasting what will be heard once Sirius Updates it's receivers. OR...XM is broadcasting a mirror of the general playlist of the Sirius playlist on shuffle until tomorrow when things can be synced up.

    I like to think that XM is broadcasting the 'new' version of the duplicate stations, and Sirius will pick up that stream when it updates. That makes the most sense, since XM updated first, and instead of just changing names and keeping its original programming, or mirroring Sirius, it has a new playlist. Power of deduction says that Sirius will just switch over.

    As do I. The fact that, on some of the "new" XM channels from Sirius (I was just listening to Outlaw Country), we're being welcomed to the new channel by the DJs, lends support to this view.

    Whatever it is, it's horrible. I want my Lucy back. These two channels couldn't be more polar opposites if they tried.

    As I said in another thread. Quit your bitching. Here is what you can do.

    1) Unsubscribe
    2) Use an IPOD
    3) Get slacker
    4) Use FM
    5) Go to one of the other 100+ channels on satellite radio

    Quit your bitching. Nobody cares. Here is what you should do:


    Crying here won't fix a thing with your apparent problem.

    You have many options at your disposal.
