Email from Xfinity/Comcast on the EAS test on 11/9
Just got this email from Xfinity/Comcast. "Were not totally sure what it will do to our equipment, but were gonna do it anyways."

Dear Comcast Customer:

On Wednesday, November 9 at 2 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), FEMA and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct the nation's first ever Emergency Alert System (EAS) test. The purpose of this test is to help determine if the national-level system will work as designed, should officials ever need to send a national alert.

This test will last approximately three minutes and will be seen on all local, cable, and satellite TV stations across the country, as well as radio.

Here's What You Should Know

Your Comcast programming will be temporarily interrupted. However, as soon as the test ends, you will be returned to your regularly scheduled programming. While we do not anticipate an interruption in your service, in some rare cases, you may need to:


• Use your remote to channel up and then channel down or power down your box to fully restore programming after the test completes.

• Any DVR recordings that are in progress during this test will be interrupted, and in some cases, lost.


If you experience the Emergency Alert System message for more than five minutes, please do the following:

• Power-cycle your cable box by unplugging the power cord from the outlet

• Wait thirty seconds and then plug it back in

The guide data and Video On Demand content will take a period of time to fully restore. Please wait 20 minutes before choosing Video On Demand as this might result in other errors with your box. To watch a video and learn more on how to Power-cycle, CLICK HERE.

To learn more about the national EAS test, visit us at: [link to www.comcast.com] or visit FEMA at [link to www.fema.gov] or the FCC at [link to www.fcc.gov]

We thank you for being a loyal Comcast customer.

Sounds like whatever they are doing will have a pretty drastic affect on their equipment. Maybe I will unplug for the day. At least until the test is done.

they keep referring to these as "first ever" but when i was a kid in preschool watching daytime tv, they had the emergency broadcast system tests regularly on the tele.

This is starting to sound like a firmware update. What the hell are they really up to?

First ever nation wide use of the system. States use it all the time.

My TV, bluray, printer, etc. are all tied to my wireless router, I'm shutting everything down for sure. Can't see why equipment should be effected at all if your just substituting one broadcast for another, has to be something more to what they're doing.
