    XM favorites

    I know this has been brought up a long time ago but I've never seen it recently: The issue of "favorites" lists in the XM module. There's a gazillion XM channels and most people at least would like to have a blacklist - those stations that you wouldn't listen to if they paid you. It's ok to have the 10 unlabelled buttons for quick picks (although it'd be nice if the display scrolled to the selected channel), but I'm referring to a way to get rid of the scads of traffic reports for other cities, and programming that's not my cup of tea. All standalone XM apps are able to create a bunch of these favorites lists, could FP be setup to at least just have ONE?

    The XM player is soon to be totally revamped, but as of now, you'll have to wait.

    I have searched here and there and can't seem to figure this one out...
    How do you set the ten buttons at the bottom?
    It is really frustrating me... I normally figure this stuff out quickly!
    Thanks...

    change to the channel you want as a preset... then press and hold the preset button for 2 seconds

    voila.. you have a new preset

    I could have sworn that I tried that.... but, I'll try it again... I suppose my T/s timeout could be set for a shorter time...

    Thanks!
