Issue with RB1/Sirius/iPOD kit

I installed my iPOD integration kit yesterday with my Sirius radio. I used the 5066203AA 10ft atrist cable as well. Everything works, but im having two problems. First, when im playing the iPOD, if i let a song play into the next song the display on my RB1 changes the song title but he Artist stays the same. If i scroll up or down the songs remain right but the artists are off by one track. Second, when switching back to Sirius Radio, sometimes the artist and song information doesnt even appear unless i start to switch through a few preset stations. Has anybody else had these problems. FYI im not using the multiplex unit. im wired up Sirius to iPOD unit (via 5066203AA) to RB1.

I don't have the Ipod kit, but I have noticed occasional issues with the Title/Artist info on Sirius that I have to change stations to get it to refresh. It's apparent the RB1 wasn't totally designed for either Sirius or an Ipod so it's probably kind of a hack to get it to work anyway. There are some guys working on modifying the firmware (IE, switching the Title and Artist lines to match every other sat radio tuner in existence) but I don't know if they even have the ability to address these issues.

So is it just me? Would adding the multiplex unit help me out at all??

If i turn the radio off then back on it tends to refresh everything.... gets very annoying.

I have the same issue and I have the multiplexer. I think it's just because the RB1 software isn't very robust.
