Radio Problems

I did a search and looked through several pages to see if anyone else had this problem.The stock 08 CD/XM radio likes to not change the station when you push the button.Now if you want to go to say XM, it will do that, but then it wont go back to whatever the previous station was be it AM or FM.The main problem is its intermittent.If you change the band AM/FM/XM,it will go back to the last station that you were listening to on that band.Its still under warranty,so I know I can take it in,I just want to know if this is common.Anyone else have this happen.

i dont have that exact problem, but my radio does some stupid stuff... i took it to the dealer & they cleared a "fault code" and its doin it again, so im guessin next time i take it back they'll have to replace it.....

Ok here's the update.I took the car in this morning.After the tech tried a bunch of stuff including but not limited to calling the radio things I only say when I'm really P.O. he managed to get it to work, but they are replacing the radio anyway. So when it comes in, problem solved.Thanks for all the replys.
