This is probably yet another odd Sync quirk that probably has no resolution and honestly isn’t a huge deal for me but figured I’d bring it up.
I don’t currently have a SiriusXM sub (mostly because I despise the audio quality on the older Sirius only tuners, SiriusXM’s billing tactics are the final nail in that coffin but I digress). I’ve seen this during the free previews over Memorial Day this year as well as the one going on right now.
Basically all the services are active including traffic, weather, etc… The subscription status page shows everything BUT the audio side as subscribed but the audio channels are available. Artist/Song info shows correctly on the main APIM display. However in the IPC it just shows the unsubscribed ‘Please call this number blah blah…’ message. It also appears as if the channel guide is not available. I’ve left it up for many minutes and it remains blank.
Sadly I can’t recall if this occurred with Sync 2. It may have but I had finally gotten around to cancelling my subscription around the time I upgraded to Sync 3.
