Your radio presets?

I have XM, not Sirius. So the 209 is probably not correct, as I made the list from memory.
I've had trouble with my car XM radio for the last couple of months, where I only get channels 0 and 1 until I send a "refresh" to the radio. That lasts only a couple of hours and I can only send one refresh a day, more if I call XM on the phone. It's a pain in the neck.
I called them and they said it wasn't just me or my radio, but that it affected either all or some XM subscribers. Is anyone else on this list with XM having this problem?
The MLB on 89 just points me to the channels with the games I want to hear, which move around all the time anyway. And now that the Red Sox are on WEEI-FM I hardly have a reason to listen to them on XM.
So scratch the 209 from the lineup. I must have another channel on that third tier or set it to some channel that commonly has MLB play-by-play.

I gather you're a Sirius subscriber because channel 209 isn't even part of the MLB channel allocation on XM; it's usually occupied by horse racing coverage or talk. I'm confused, though. I thought MLB isn't allowing Sirius XM to stream MLB play-by-play on both platforms unless it rewrites the old XM deal and ponies up more money and Sirius XM has refused to do so, therefore restricting all MLB PBP to XM subscribers only. What PBP are you hearing on 89?
