    Poptropolis doesn't sound very good compared to other channels. Especially in my car. It's weird.

    I thought that Turbo sounded a little 'muffled' as well

    Poptropolis is sounding better now. Not as good as the others but listenable.

    Poptroplis sounds much better now. The selection is good. Not as fun as Party Mega Mix but enjoyable.

    As someone who was in high school during the "Turbo era"... oh yes. I went from my FM station to Octane in 2005. Turbo reminds me of Octane from the middle of the last decade...if only they threw some of the harder stuff from Lithium in, and I think they do on occasion.

    (It's also a bit weird to remember that Nickleback was considered "hard rock" but I digress.)

    I'd love a customized version of this. The sliders could be harder-softer, one for nu-metal(?) and one for rap-rock(?)

    Just curious, Are you listening to Turbo on the special preview Ch.31 or on Xtra Channels?

    Extra. I didn't know it was on Ch. 31.

    There was a big shake up with the Xtra channels this week. I was channel surfing and Road Trip Radio is now on Ch. 301. There is an announcement of a new channel coming soon called Covers. May be an extension of the Coffeehouse, yeah!. Silk is also available now replacing Classic College Radio. The Yoga channel is also no available.
    There is also Ch.900 now Test Tone. Kind've like the test pattern on TV.

    I had XMU as a preset on my Linx, and it got replaced with Road Trip yesterday. Every now and then a change like that will mess with my presets.

    Moving Classic College Radio to Internet only has got to be a real shocker. I like Road Trip better but that's already on Ch.18. Something new must be coming soon to Ch.18.

    I'd raid rather have Classic College Radio back. (That was what got removed from my presets. XMU is on the second bank of presets.)

    How come the channels are all spaced out and not sequential?

    yes, that is strange indeed.

    Poptropolis and Road Trip are there together for a nice 1-2 combination but then you have to push more buttons to get to the others.

    Look at it more carefully. It's spaced by genre. I guess this also gives room for future additions.

    Covers Channel 302 is on air now. It is like a Coffeehouse Jr.
    This will be a good one as long as they have a wide enough selection to not sound over repetitive.

    Navidad is available now on channel 785. It always gets better as the holiday season progresses.

    Why must SiriusXm mix in English songs with the Spanish songs on Navidad?

    I think that happens with most of the Latino channels

    The Xtra channels have custom listening, right?

    Why doesn't Turbo have such? :( I could do without the Nickleback and Limp Bizkit, even if that was back when Nickleback was considered "hard rock" and "good."
