Question sat radio hangs for 5 min?

Has anyone else experienced the volume go out while listening to sat radio. I didn't do a perfect experiment, but I think the regular radio was still working properly. After 5 min the volume came back on.

Last time this happened, I was trying to connect on the bluetooth phone and it just said "connecting...." for ~ 5min, meanwhile I eventually switched to sat radio which had no volume (same symptom as before). Then in a couple of minutes the volume turned on again.

Anyone else with symptoms like that? It's possible that it happened in the same section of town.

Yes the Sat radio system gets squirrelly at times. I have experienced the no volume incidents, the 'not subscribed' message as well as not being able to change channels/presets (system is frozen on one channel). What I usually do is pull over (safely) and restart the car. Works like a charm all the time.

Both times I have been on the freeway w/o convenient shoulder, but I guess now, for curiosity alone, I'll have to try that out. Too bad there isn't a clear button. I tried a couple of buttons but to no avail.

if you have idrive, you can hit cntrl-alt-del (CD eject-DVD eject-radio power) to reset the unit. Not sure about doing this while driving down the highway though, maybe someone else can comment...
