The radio works but it will not receive xm. The dealer has already replaced the receiver, and is now ordering an antenna. They apparently don't have a clue what the problem is. They say they are working with GM technical people; I just can't imagine this is the first time GM has seen this problem, unless it is C6 specific.

Couple possibilities:

1. Antenna. Being a digital signal you won't get static if there is no clear signal, it's all or nothing.

2. I don't know how the factory unit works, but with my aftermarket one I had to leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour during the first 24 hours after activating the account so it could slowly pick up the signals from each station. If the radio wasn't used in that first 24 hours, I believe the account locked back down (not sure on that though). Are you getting the "test" channel (3 I think)?

3. Someone could have typed the account number wrong when setting it up. Try checking on www.xmradio.com to see if your account is active.
