Advertisements The last few EAS alerts on my Roamio have not shown any message. They just blank (all black) the video and ignore remote control commands for what seems like at least 2 minutes. One could easily suspect the TiVo is bricked. If you wait long enough it comes to life again. I can tell these are EAS because my mini will grab a tuner. The national EAS today was a little different. After a minute or two of locked blank screen the alert message box did appear. Just wondering if others are seeing this behavior.
