This pattern is a part of the TiVo service broadcast.

Damn, anyone else seen this infomerical? They have this damned snow screen with a banner running across it with terrible elevator music saying "This pattern is a part of the TiVo service broadcast. There is nothing wrong with your television"

No doubt, this is a TiVo only program of some sort, but it's so damned annoying and has been on the TV for like 5 minutes... I figured it would be a quick 15 second thing for TiVo owners. This is so annoying.

My DirecTiVo had something similar to that but I always just changed the channel.

Ummmm.. Why are you sitting there watching snow for 5 minutes?

Nothing better to do?

Heh, no... I was working with the TV on in the background. I just figured it would go off after a while, but it didn't.
