Well if it is any consolation, I get the same behavior with a different FE and a different tuner. I use RR and XMD1000 and sometimes it does the same thing. I exit and restart XM and sometimes it goes away right away and some times I have to exit several times. I never have to restart the PC just XM. I thought I was the only one so I thought it was something quirky about my setup. XM issue maybe??
