    WTF. I noticed a song I had saved in my song seek was playing on Heart & Soul and my radio didn't alert me. So I switched over to the channel and hit memo to make sure it was saved but nothing happened. I switched over to Shade45 and hit memo on a random song playig and it allowed me to save either the song or artist. Went back to H & S and still nothing happened.

    I went to The Blend and Love and I could only save the song not the artist. 40's on 4 nothing. 40s-80s nothing 90s only song. E Street, both artist and song.

    (Using Sportster 4)

    My XM artist seek didn't work for a little bit yesterday, but it seems to be going strong now.

    Replays seem to be dead at the moment too.

    I had Area on for a few hours at work and my SL2 didn't capture any of it.
    I switched over to hair nation to see what was going on over there post merger, and got about 45 minutes. The played Winger, so I switched over to Lithium.

    Portishead is on now. . . . . Not quite format, but I still dig it.

    My radio replays seem to be working on my SL10. Octane was on while I was listening to my recording of 100, and it captured 2 hours of it for me in the replay.

    I got an 'Artist unavailable' today when I tried to save them hitting Memo on my Starmate Replay. I don't recall ever seeing that before. And I believe it was a ported XM station (the Loft if I recall).

    The Artist/Song info is screwed up on Sirius radios.

    Try this....

    Go to the 70's and press the Memo button.. You'll get:
    Store Artist
    Store Song

    Go to the 60's and press the Memo button.. You'll get:
    Artist Unavailable
    Store Song

    Go to the 90's and press the Memo button.. You'll get
    Nothing.. The Memo button doesn't work at all.

    Strange :)

    Yes, I'm getting the same sort of behavior, sometimes I get Artist Unavailable, other times my receiver just stares back at me.

    Very annoying because I've heard a bunch of artists on The Loft and Deep Tracks that I wanted to store.

    I was seeing this on my SL2 before I canceled my sub, but I think it is because many of the new channels are originating out of DC and not NY, they probably have different PID info and thereore the SL2 doesn't recognize it.

    you're right, i noticed that i cannot store any song (alert) playing on BPM on my Sportster 4, or any of the channels affected by the merger, WTF!?!?

    I bought a Sportster 4 specifically for the fact you could save artists or songs so it would remind you every time they are played on a station. Now I notice that since they channels have merged it won;t recognize any of the artists/songs I already have saved on the XM channels they put on Sirius. It also won;t let me save any artists on XM channels. It only will allow you to save a song. This totally blows. If I knew they were going to kill this feature of the radio by merging channels I would have just gotten the Starmate 4 and saved a few bucks.

    Sirius really seems to be trying to do everything they can to piss off their custo ers and drive them away.

    Still broken.

    1/2 of my stored songs/artist was from Sirius Love and I've got 0 beeps since last week. With the Sirius Love PD getting canned last week, I'm pretty sure Sirius XM Love is The Heart's old playlist. Shame too. Sirius Love use to play my favorite songs at least once a day. I quick song search on dogstar show that only 1 of my stored songs was played and that was last Friday. Do they even have the Soft Touch block anymore?

    Heart & Soul is a lot better playing songs that haven't been on Sirius since Slow Jamz died but I can't song seek any of them >_>

    Has anyone contacted Sirius about this and if so what answer did you get?

    I'm getting same issues.

    Customer Support @ Sirius is fairly useless. The standard answer for them is to get a new antenna....

    I haven't e-mailed them about this problem yet but if their answer is going to be get a new antenna, what is the point. It isn't my antenna that is causing this problem.

    I want the damn radio to notify me when my saved groups and songs are played!!!! So fix the dang problem Sirius.
