So apparently there is some regulation where a cable company can force cable cards and cable tuners to tune to a certain station when there is a weather alert or "kid gone missing" alert. So far so good. Therefore my cable cards have been changing stations in the past few weeks during weather alerts. I won't get into the ludicrosity of the weather alert system.
What I want to know is, why in the fuck does Charter make my cable cards tune to the home shopping network during a weather alert? Are these fools that incompetent, or what? That was a rhetorical question. It's annoying enough that my DVR interrupts recording for weather alerts. Imagine how annoying it is for my DVR to tune home shopping network for 5 seconds instead of whatever I was recording!?
