How do you get rid of the bad weather advisory that runs across the top of the screen in Windows Media Center. It's not the temporary thing like you get on regular TV. It stays on during the whole period of the advisory, i.e. hours on end. To say it's aggravating is an understatement. I'm on Time Warner cable with a Ceton PCI tuner if it makes a difference.

I'm on twc as well and don't think it makes a diff. Your not going to get rid of it as it is FCC mandated ... I think . I hate it to as I have a feeling that by the time it comes on we will probably already be swept back to OZ !

It's a quirk in WMC. Even after the EAS (Emergency Alert System) is no longer being broadcast, WMC will continue to show it until you shut down WMC & restart it. You don't need to reboot your PC, just WMC. These are the benefits of using an entertainment center abandoned by Microsoft.
