It would be nice if broadband connected TiVo devices could check a NWS (or TiVo) server every few minutes with the device's zip code and then react if there is a National Weather Service watch or warning issued. For a watch, just a small icon in the corner of the screen would be enough but for a warning a full pop-up message with a "click for more info" option should be displayed. I know there are HME applications such as Galleon which can display weather alert information but there are two drawbacks here. First, is a dependence on a computer in the house. Second, is the inability -- at least to my knowledge -- for HME applications to interrupt programs. A good emergency notification feature would have to exist in TiVo software.
