'08 XM Display Weirdness

I mentioned this in another thread but didn't want to continue hijacking it. I've had my '08 LE CC LWB for a week now after replacing my '04 Titan. I was dismayed to see that the display for SAT radio hadn't changed since the original model. I also used to have Sirius but at least I got all 14 characters as opposed to the only 8 I get with XM now. But, a few days after delivery, I noticed all of a sudden I was seeing 14 characters on all my XM channels. However, it has not been consistent. It seems to come and go at will which is driving me crazy and making me think I'm seeing things. At this point, I don't know what I'm going to get when I start up the truck. Sometimes it'll show all characters and sometimes only 8 or even less.

If the Nissan Sirius tuner has 14 character capability, then I would think the Nissan XM tuner would also have the same code built in the hardware. So, am I to assume this relates more to XM's signal as it relates to this tuner or is it simply a hardware only problem? In other words, is this something XM can rectify with their signal? That just doesn't make sense to me, though.

I have a 2007 Xterra and having the same issues. I was looking around to see if anyone else was having XM display problems and found your post. Nissan keeps telling my dealer that it is XM's fault but I don't think so. They have changed out my modular and receiver and this still has not fixed the issue.
It actually worked for a while today so I took it by and showed them. I think they thought I was crazy or something. Like you it is driving me nuts also. I like to see who is singing what. Maybe we can figure this thing out.
I haven't tried putting it in another mode to start Truck. I will try that and see if I have the same results.

I tried starting mine in a different mode and it worked. I guess that is what I'm going to have to do until they figure something out. Thanks for your post it helped a lot.
Do you ever race your Titan? My boyfriend has a Tundra and tries to get the Titan guys out to the race track close to San Antonio. He is curious to what they can do. I really like my Xterra but don't plan on racing it. :) Take Care!
My dealer (Gunn Nissan) is working on this issue with the Nissan Tech Line. They left a message on my answering machine and said they have new info on it but I haven't been able to get a hold of them yet. I will let you know what they say about it.
