I tried recording Robocop II last night, but a stupid test kicked my Comcast box off of on demand back to regular cable. I have two weather alert radios and don't want this. If some moron isn't up to date on the weather let them eat cake, or plywood, a two by four, toxic gas, etc. I have seen this at work with a tornado warning where everyone was listening to internet radio on their phones without a single terrestrial radio turned on. If you have no clue what broadcasting means, so be it. Don't kick off desired programming.
Wah! A member for 4 years now and this is your first post? The nerve of those people! Actually testing an alert system that could save your ass! Here's a link to the synopsis, so you can read what you missed: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100502/synopsis?ref_=tt_stry_pl ...Oh wait! It's 'On Demand'! Maybe one of your neighbors can record it for you...
EAS is required by law. If a tornado hits your home, you'd lose the recording anyway. And..... EAS is not just for weather emegencies. So...
Call Comcast (if there was charge). They will remimburse you and you can re-record.
If it was a "free" on-demand..... just re-record it.
You can rent Robocop II from Netflix and find a way to copy it.
You could probably find a copy at a yard sale for $.50.
It's a good movie, but not that good to compromise the welfare of the community.
You purchase the movie from Walmart for $10 ($13 for Bluray).
