With no way to shut off the audible portion my pvr has been shut off also. A simple "press exit to acknowledge alert" button would have kept me happy AND informed. Instead I'm frustrated with Rogers and enjoying a movie on a competing service.

Amber alert just got cancelled. Boy found safe and sound!

 

And no more infernal beeping!

I have a NB 3 and the alerts were recorded.  I was intially watching a show live while it was also being recorded.  I got so fed up with the alerts that I decided to watch the recording instead, and lucky me, there were the alerts.  At least I could ff through them, resulting in missing parts of the show.  The robotic voice was totally unnecessary.  The banner alone was sufficient IMO, and the loud beeping was ridiculous.

No, the messages are not recorded or played back when watching recorded content. 

 

FYI - for those interested, here is a link about recent amendments made by the CRTC with respect to Emergency Alerts: http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2014/2014-444.htm


I was watching a show I was still recording and at first thought it was on the recording, but it was live, coming through the cable network, so I could pause and skip back to catch the dialogue the siren blocked out. I guess the only way to avoid it is to record everything and not watch until the alert is over.
