Its happened about 6 times now.....when I start the car, XM does not have any audio or Traffic for about 20 min or so. It lists the song playing, but no audio or traffic. The radio functions on AM & FM... Has anyone had this problem?

Call XM or faster yet, go to website and send a new refresh signal to radio. Sounds like maybe your original set up may not have been complete, causing it to "redo" each time. It's free and worth a shot.

I had the very same problem and called XM through On-Star and they refreshed the radio as I was travelling through Louisiana. Quick and good response on their part. The mystery is why it happened in the first place.

Thanks "cutnout" for that suggestion.
you are welcome. I am a technical guy via education and curiosity plus I like to share. Today I learned that if my wife's (or any) cell phone was onec paired and cancelled that you have to delete it on her phone and redo the pair with the Corvette. One would think it simple but its not in the owners manual so learning is good.
These cars are a little sophisticated in the electronics so again sharing is good.
Keep up the good work.

I had the same thing happen today and changing the XM channel brought the audio back. Basically just turn the tuning nob one click then back to my chosen channel solved the problem. You can also send a refresh to the radio via the XM website once you log into your account.

I had a weird thing happen today. I picked up a call on my bluetooth, and when it disconnected, the xm radio made no sound. song and stuff showed on screen, but volume knob turning or pressing mute switch had no effect, no volume icon showing volume level would show either. When i pressed the 'radio' button and cycled through AM to FM and then to XM, it began working again.

My friend had the same exact thing happen with his Z51 last Friday. He ended up shutting down the car and restarting, it fixed it. Then it happened again. I suggested perhaps because the mic/call end button is actually a rocker button with mute on the other side perhaps it was 'rocked' the wrong way. He tried that next time and it seemed to help. Another possibility is a software glitch where when a call comes through, it is designed to mute the music (but the screen stays unchanged), and perhaps when the call is terminated somehow the software doesn't immediately recognize that and continues to mute the music.

Isn't the volume control knob also the mute button if you push it in?

Could be an accidental push of the button, and the mute times out after say 20-30 minutes?

It is the mute button. Tried toggling it on and off several times to no avail even though the mute icon would illuminate and then go off with each push of volume button. No effect until I cycled from XM/AM/FM back to XM.
