Over the past hour, I've tried to watch a pre-recorded program. I've been interrupted... four times now... with full screen/audio emergency alerts for a tornado warning in some county that is at least 100 miles away. And those aren't even heading this direction.
I try EVERY button on my remote, and nothing works. I'm locked into the warning for two minutes or so until they finally get bored of talking and release control of the TiVo back to me. Then I have to go back and play the recording, only to be interrupted again 15 minutes later.
My cell phone only bugs me for things in my immediate area, and even then, they allow me to opt-out of certain types of alerts. So I don't need my TiVo chiming in and telling me to panic immediately.
Is there some way to abort an emergency alert so that my TiVo isn't locked up for the whole duration of the message? Is there some way to opt-out of the whole thing so that my TiVo doesn't do the alerts at all?
