Satellite Radio Hell

I figured with the satellite merger I'd grab a Sirius module for my Avic-D3. Course I can't find the damn module (SIR-PNR2) anywhere for a decent price and then I read that the Pioneer Sirius display flat out stinks compared to XM - But Sirius has the channels I want.
Do I wait until the merger unscrews itself and see is SOMEONE puts out a Pioneer unit that does it all and looks good? I'd hate to buy the friggin thing to have it legacy in 3 months. What do y'all think?

they will both work but the two systems are not compatible. If i remember right they would start with new units that run on both systems.

Nice setup on the XM. .
Thanks for the responses guys. I had an XM before I got the Avic but it seems like all the channels I want are now over on Sirius. Guess it doesn't matter how the display looks as long as I have the stations I want. I just have a feeling as soon as I buy it they'll come out with some new fancy one for the Pioneers.

I have the same problem, all the stuff I bought it for is now on Sirius. I am waiting out myself... G/L with whatever you choose.
