Thursday.. What is going to happen!?!?!?!
Ok as most of you know this Thursday is the biggest channel update done by Sirius to date. Not only will we get (and lose) some channels, but the line up is going to also have some changes. If you need all the details as to what is going to change please check out these links:

Now as to what you should expect on Thursday, I'm told the updates should take place from 3am-5am (ET) on Thursday morning. In the past 4am was the magic hour.

When you turn on Sirius on Thursday your radio will need 2-3 minutes to get the updates. During this time you might hear some audio or not, and messages like "Acquiring Signal" or "Updating" with a percentage jumping in big blocks like 20% then 60%, this is normal, It is VERY important not to change your channels, or hit any buttons until it is done. Once it is all done downloading you will be able to reset all the presets. It is also important to note if you have locked out any stations you will need to redo this. So if you now have "Sirius OutQ" locked out after the update you have Boston and Philly traffic locked out. So you will also need to make these changes.

Sirius.com will also be down for a very short bit and so will Sirius stations online.
Check in all week for updates...

I've only had Sirius for two weeks so I haven't grown attached to any specific channel. I'm excited about some of the new stations coming aboard. They seem to be nice additions.
