Not sure if this makes sense but I guess my question is does my "5" button just take me to that channel or to that channel in my preset list.
The way iDrive sees it you are jumping from AM to Satellite.

Between the two moves, as you leave AM to go to Satellite you need to follow Step #2 and go to the Radio Menu, click on Presets, and 'retract' the Presets menu.

I know it's unintuitive, but it's how it works. To get your HUD to scroll through all 40 Presets, the last thing you need to do is retract the Presets menu. From there, it'll stick for years unless you go to a source like AM again.
