That's the way it works on my Directed HD radio also.  One odd  
behavior on this radio: no matter what HD station I'm listening to  
when I go to sleep, the clock radio goes on with the analog station.   
So if I went to sleep listening to Irish music on WTKK-HD2, I'd wake  
up to Imus on WTKK-FM.  If I go to sleep listening to full-fidelity  
WBZ-HD, I wake up to low-fi WBZ-AM.  I have to turn the radio off and  
on again to get the HD to work.
