As slowbiscuit initimated, Comcast in the ATL is gawdawful, which is why I don't think this will ever be addressed by them nor are we likely to see VOD on TiVo.
Comcast in CT does have VOD, maybe that part of the EAS difference.

Um, no. Totally separate issues.

OK, then why are my recordings not interrupted by the EAS signal, watching a recording or live TV is interrupted by the EAS signal on Comcast Hartford CT.

Here's a simplistic explanation, with the caveat that I have no idea what I'm talking about...

When you are watching TV, EAS will *always* interrupt you. That's its purpose. Whether a recording or live doesn't matter--EAS comes to the forefront.

When you are recording TV, there are different ways that EAS can operate, and I understand it's up to the local cable operator as to which method they choose. Some systems will have EAS interrupt the recording, and others will have it ignore it. Remember, the WATCHING of TV is always interrupted, it's the recording we are talking about now.

A poorly implemented EAS interrupts the recording. A properly implemented one has no effect. I'm lucky, here in Houston, Comcast has a smart EAS system, and it has no effect on my recordings. But it always interrupts my watching.

That exactly the way it is working for me so you and I would have no reason to use the standby mode to avoid the EAS signal.

Cum hoc ergo propter hoc is a logical fallacy.

Hmm. I've had Tivo since about 2009 here in ATL. I can't remember ever seeing an EAS ruin one of my recordings. I was OTA for the 1st 3 years (so Comcast wasn't involved), but I've had Comcast for the last year. Still haven't had a recording interrupted though. Perhaps they just do them during times when I'm not recording (ie: during the daytime?). I rarely record outside of primetime unless I'm recording a marathon of a certain show.

Either way, I do not do standby and I won't be bothered.

I thought the fallacy was "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc".
