Here's my log from today. Key things to note:
1- Tried hibernation and when I came back from hibernation to the XM screen, it was changing channels but nothing was playing. Went to the Settings menu, tried to uncheck XM and it crashed. Went back into ME and it worked again.
2- I was playing XM and it worked fine. Then went to Music for a while. Went back to XM, but was not able to play any XM channels. It didn't freeze, but nothing was happening. Went back to music and music worked. Tried XM a few more times with no luck. Went into the playlist editor and saw that XM channels were not updating. Tried exiting out of ME, it exited but the process remained running.
I hope this helps!
The immense amount of:
leads me to believe you have a hardware problem.

Are you sure your xm receiver works with other apps?
Sounds like crickets chirping...
I think it's time to be moving ahead with this build. I sincerely wish I could reproduce and resolve the outstanding issues, but there just seems to be too many variables and I'm not entirely convinced that they aren't all being caused by jacked up windows installs and / or physical connection issues. If anyone has anything else useful to contribute do it before this Friday.
It works with RR and Frodo Sat just fine.

Don't take this the wrong way, but it irritates me that this is the kind of feedback I get on this (a week later, after I threaten to close the door on it).
Regardless of your answer, I think it's just time to move on. I'm never going to be able to please everyone on this. Hopefully when I move the XM control out into it's own process things will work better for you.
Both Frodo and RR work fine with XM and come back from hibernation without a problem.
I apologize for not responding to your post sooner. I never received an instant notification email to your post from 8/31 so I didn't realize you responded. I saw an email today for your post today. Sorry.
I appreciate your help on this and I agree its time to move on and focus on other higher priority issues. Maybe the XM issue will work its way out.
