Advertisements Ok, this never happened on my S2 or S1- but last night an Amber Alert flashed on my screen and my remote was utterly useless. Couldn't change channels, couldn't get to the program guide, nothing. The only button that did anything was the mute button, and that's because it shut down the volume on my amp. Is this a new "feature" of an S3 or something to do with the Cablecards and the FCC? Is there any way to disable it? It makes NO sense whatsoever to me to broadcast information about missing children and the car the abductor might be driving to people who are at home watching tv and probably aren't out on the road for the night. What do they think, we're all going to drop what we're doing, jump into our cars and play "police"?
