    In the past, when my cable company (Comcast) issued an Emergency Alert System (EAS) message, my S3 would cause my screen to go blank, and if I was recording anything at the time, the recording would just skip over that part. Tonight, an EAS message appeared in, for lack of a better way to describe it, a picture-in-picture window, and the recording had neither a skip nor the message.

    Is the "message in a window" thing something to do with the new software, or has it been happening for a while?

    As I understand it, there are different kinds of EAS messages -- some force-tune, some only pop-up. I've never actually seen the latter, but that could be what you're seeing.
