#1641 of 1700 Receive HD Radio on an XM Receiver?
Apr 21, 2011 (1:17 pm)
I own a new 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid that came with a 3-month trial of XM radio. I hate the idea of paying for radio. Is it possible to receive HD radio with the XM radio receiver/antenna in my car?

The answer, as I have now learned, is No.

"Just a quick public service announcement here. Tomorrow, Sirius and XM will be reorganizing channels to something more sane (who thought it was a good idea to have country music mucking up the low station IDs??) well ordered, and standardized between the two brands. The new order goes; Hits, Rock, hip hop, dance, country, etc...News and Politics occupy spots 112 - 128."

this happened yesterday. Good news is, the radio was smart enough to know, so all my car presets still worked (same station on the same button, even though it is a new station #). I thought I was going to have to reprogram them all.

Heh, that would have irritated a lot of subscribers. Play some Coffeehouse for me.

I thought the same thing and was MOST relieved to discover that was not the case. The update on my radio actually happened on Tuesday night while I was listening to it. I thought I had lost signal but when I looked at it, it was doing the updates.
If you use the website to figure out new channel lineups, beware! The "customized guide" will give you an incomplete list of channels, so it is not worth the time to create it. Better just to pull up the entire new lineup for the package you have...I did that and discoered there were a couple of channels listed that I didn't know about before that I want to listen to.

huh. Mine wasn't smart enough. Oh well.

Mine updated itself too, I was very pleased - thought I was going to have to print out a list and do it all manually.

Mine updated too... very quickly. I had a short trip first thing in the morning and I thought it might not finish by the time I got there but it was ready by the end of the driveway.
Presets all look very strange now (with different numbers) but they stayed in the same position so I'll be able to remember them. The category button on my radio makes a bit more sense now. After the merge, it was all over the place.

I guess I should take my wife's CX-7 out today and see if the resets take place. We've got Sirius, so not exactly sure what changes will be made.
