Hi - is there any way to turn off Alert Ready (Cable), at least the audible portion, after hearing it for a period of time. I am not sure that the audbile alarm is needed to remind me of something after the first dozen times - it is however giving me an aneurysm to the point I've turned off my cable and am watching a streaming service so I don't have to listen to it.
It's beyond our control. All television service distributors are participating in the national public alerting system. The messages are intended to inform and protect the public in the event of an emergency.
Okay, the Alert system works. One side effect: it is horribly annoying!!!
The banner is fine. What is beyond annoying is the alert sound that is broadcast at full volume every two minutes! It renders the TV completely unusable.
This has been going on at least two hours. We are not in the path of any storms or tornados at the moment. How about you just put the banner on the screen, and mute the damned sound!!!
