Re: weather alerts are WAY TO LOUD!!!!!!!

I don't think you can.  They are "injected" into the channel(s) and cannot be suppressed or volume changed.  Only solution is to grab the remote and turn the volume down or off (or hit the mute).

 

I guess they make 'em loud to really grab your attention which I would think would be a good idea if you're in an area where a tornado or something equally disastrous is coming. Smiley Very Happy

No.  You can't turn it down.  It's like the buzzer wake-up alarm on your clock radio.  It makes sure you hear it.

Just hit the "OK" button to silence and get rid of it.

Re: weather alerts are WAY TO LOUD!!!!!!!

Agreed. These are way too loud and so frequent. They come on so frequently during the summer that I don't pay attention to the warning anymore, much like a car alarm going off outside. And the thing too as well is that once you press the "ok" button, sure enough the exact same alarm goes off a minute later. I really don't need the alert to wake me up because guess what, if there's a thunderstorm brewing outside, the THUNDER will wake me up.
