For your info:
The next steps should be to abandon the project as a waste of time and money, but program offices have budgets to justify.
I have two questions-
First, is this a TiVo thread? I don't think so, so why in this forum?
Second, why am I getting this as the URL for the link-
My browser says it can't find the website.
Actually this is a Tivo thread.
But I'll ask......why is this topic here?
Actually, this is a TiVo FORUM.
I'm asking if this THREAD is TiVo-related.
How many degrees of separation do we get to prove relevancy?
My TIVO did not record the national EAS test from my cable provider. What should I or my cable provider do about it?
There! Did that prove relevancy?
There were several reports in this forum mentioning the EAS test screwed up their Tivos. That makes this relevant
Is there a way to opt-out of the alerts? The banner is really annoying. I assume it is being sent somehow through Comcast? Or is it coming in through the ethernet port from Tivo?
I really don't need to have some inane banner blocking my cnn channel where presumably I'm trying to get information about the "emergency".
No, it's federally mandated.
As WhiskeyTango stated it Federal mandate. What also has not been tested is the ability to turn on your TV in event of a national emergency. There supposed to be a chip in most new TVs to make this happen. So if you think the banner annoying, how about the TV waking you up in the middle of the night.
I call BS on this.
Both my Premiere XL and Premiere Elite were recording the same channel at the time. The Premiere XL switched channels from HD to SD with the low-res black screen with white text with no indication that it was just a test while the Premiere Elite stayed on the channel and simply put a scrolling banner at the top of the screen and then a message from the local station all in HD.
