    Well, the Michigan feed for the Michigan-Illinois game today is "dark" on XM 242...the same thing happened with UNLV-Louisville recently. The screen scrolled the score of the game, but a loop of XM sports broadcasts today and what channels they would be on was playing, not the game. The game was playing on XM 196 with Illinois announcers, so no biggie, right? WRONG!! I'm paying for the best of Sirius, so I exp[ect to receive ALL of the best of Sirius! What is the problem here? Is it a probablem with XM 242- that's also where the aforementioned Louisville-UNLV game was supposed to play (which, by the way, was NOT available on another XM channel). Did XM simply run out of bandwidth and was unable to carry the broadcast? Or is the problem with the Sirius side transferring the broadcast to XM? Or is it my receiver? I wish I knew. I know it may seem like I'm bitching about minor stuff here, and maybe I am, but I'm picky like that. I want to get everything I'm supposedly paying for!

    Get over it man seriously I pay for the best of XM and guess what we don't get hardly any of the college sports we were promiced, and you get all the NFL, Nascar, and I really don't think the contract said all college sports for XM. We have 7 or 8 pbp channels to handle all the NBA, NHL, and NCAA so who should seriously be bitching? You at least had one feed half the time when I want to catch Purdue, Indiana, NC, Duke and so on its not even offered on my Sirius radio. Jesus Christ at least you had the game. I dropped $100 of my Christmas money for hardly anything. I wish they'd drop O&A and Oprah and that XMPR so we could have 3 more pbp channels. I shouldn't be so rude sorry, but truthfully your doing better than the Sirius side.

    It isn't your reciever though I've noticed with the XM NFL sometimes it takes them like 15 minutes to get the game on the propper channel. I think there just not ready for all this, sometimes feel that they pulled the trigger to early on this best of, and they weren't ready to do it propperly. Hopefully one day. Also if you noticed on like 107 the UCLA feed was on, but why not go in order? I mean the NFL is on 102 and 103, but then they had like 3 open channels sometimes I stop looking because I just figure there is nothing on above empty best of channels. Again though having both I think XM is getting the better deal so far.

    I'm over it. I still know that XM has it better than Sirius when it comes to sports. And yes, I caught some of the UL-UK game on XM 108 today. But it still really doen't make sense that 102-114 are all for Sirius sports play-by-play (13 channels) and many of these are rarely if ever used!
