2014 Nissan Altima XM Radio Title and Artist not shown

While on the 3 month XM Radio trial, the song title and artist was displayed on all stations. Right after changing from the trial to a 6 month promotional subscription, the title and artist were no longer shown.

Sirius XM Support by phone and by e-mail had no information about this problem. The Nissan dealer said they had not heard about this problem, however, a number of reports were found on the internet describing exactly the same problem.
