Default Radio always starts on channel 184

I searched every where to see if anyone else has this problem. Normally my radio starts with the last channel it was on.

Now my Starmate 4 always starts on channel 184. I can't figure out if I might of pressed something. I am trying to avoid the factory default option, because I don't want to lose all my memory.

Anyone else have this problem or know the solution.

Thanks in Advance!
Chris

I've seen that happen on a few In-Dash Sirius setups, not sure on the cause though

Generally on head units this happens if the tuner and/or head unit totally loses power. Not sure on a PNP like that, I've never had it happen.

Normally my Starmate powers on with the channel I was last listening to when I shut it off. About once a month though, when I power on it comes up on channel 184. I can't detect any pattern.

Is it in the car? Connected to an Alpine head unit?

We're discussing this problem here:
