Advertisements sure it's my fault for still being up at 430am last night... but this is rather interesting. cablevision (oakland, nj) ran a test of the emergency broadcast system at 4:28am. It caused my series 3 to immediately go to "live tv" (from watching a recorded show) it scrolled the broadcast alert in the top portion of the screen, in very clear (obviously programmed by tivo) text. It did not allow for changing of the channel, hitting the tivo menu also disabled, as well as all time shift controls - all disabled. i'm assuming this has to do with cablelabs cert. - i dont really have a problem with it, but i figured i would post my experience here in case anyone has futher questions or it helps any. i was not fully awake, so i didnt try doing much except resuming from where i left off in the recording after the test. in hindisght i should have checked to see if i could go back and re-watch the alert or if it disabled the buffer too.... i have no idea, i was too out of it.
