On all our phones emergency alerts settings are in the settings for messages.
alert didn't lock my Tivo it even kept recording the show that was on
Was your TiVo in standby? In standby the alerts are ignored since no one is watching the TiVo.
I have had issues when alerts happen when I was watching a show on the TiVo. Never had to reboot it though.
nope was watching tv
What cable company are you using?
It did blow up the closed captioning on a recording, and therefore the skip after the alert. Also, the recording plays but it thinks it is at the end anytime I exit it.
They should have participated. I know some smaller ones don’t.
Got it on my Project Fi Motorola then a minute later it went off on Cox and my TiVo’s. Never did go off on my iPhone 6+ on ATT.
I got it twice on my TIVO with Spectrum. First a message that said the emergency broadcast was complete and I could use my regular controls to go back to watching - which you can't do none of the controls work. Then after maybe 45 seconds I got the loud alert and the actual message 3 or 4 times. Then back to TIVO where it looked as if it paused the show I was watching. About 5 minutes later is happened again. Other than the order of the messages I guess it was OK - i see no reason for these but it worked OK
they did participate, but no issues like you saw
Some cable companies handle the Alert differently. Comcast Houston has never created a problem during EAS tests. We just get a scroll across the top. No recording glitches, no interruptions, no locked up TiVo. This one was no different (I was recording Jeopardy, so I have a recording of the EAS scroll, but still have all of J).
Just lucky, I guess.
Comcast here and the normal tests are just the scrolling text in a bar which I've never seen in a recording. This was different in that we got a larger text box displayed on the screen with I believe 1 or 4 pages that it cycled through (was working from home so didn't really have a chance to pay too close attention). I don't think live TV was displayed behind it in this case as with the normal tests.
I’m on Comcast in Philly suburbs and we get an annoying buzzing alert sound and a black screen with block text graphics from the 1990s.
Yep that was it.
Is this cable only? Or also broadcast? Until today I had zero clue a Tivo could do it. Implementation doesn't sound great, but in principle I like the idea as I'm using my TiVo more than my phone, and wouldn't mind getting alerts on more devices!
Followed up by an ad for the Spice Channel PPV?
Beavis: "thats cool"
Butthead : "Settle Down Beavis"
We used to have a box back then with a chip in it (old analog days) and I believe that was one of the channels that was unscrambled by it.
