I pulled over, turned the car off, opened the door (which shuts the radio off completely) and restarted.

For about a minute after that it continued saying "updating channels" but DIDN'T switch away from satellite like it had been. For about a minute after that it continued saying "updating channels" but DIDN'T switch away from satellite like it had been. They told me it was a problem with the radion and not their problem. Too many of us with this problem for it to be the radio.
The radio model is 15837848 (a newer replacement is now available with number 25998449, but that's what you'd want when ordering a new replacement).
I installed it, and when I turned on the ignition the radio display illuminated properly, I briefly heard the radio through the speakers, and then the expected "LOCKED" message was displayed after the radio read in my truck's VIN number and it didn't match the original Trailblazer's VIN number.

Most of these issues can be easily solved by giving your radio a few extra minutes to finish updating the first time you power it up on or after May 4.
