    So while setting up my Roamio Pro I got a EAS for a weather alert. While the sounds was going, the screen showed a (blueish) panel. I expected the text of the alert to show up there, but it stayed empty. At the end of the alert the panel went away. Rewinding the buffer showed the usual EAS alert (mind you I'm coming from a Series3).

    This is running 20.3.6.

    I see this all the time on my Elite. It just goes to a black screen when there is an EAS. In my area apparently the EAS messages are broadcast on an analog channel and since the Elite can't do analog I just get nothing. I can always tell it's an EAS because I have a regular cable box attached to a S2 and it displays EAS on it's LCD screen.
