Text to Speech Alerts Malfunction
« on: July 31, 2023, 10:46:16 PM »
I don't know if I accidently hit a setting on my cable box but occasionally, when an alert crawl comes across the screen, it will read the full alert text instead of doing just the standard tone and Jim Cantore narration.

Is there a way to fix this on my end or is it an issue with the IntelliStar? While its good to have its more annoying since it cuts off the programming audio until its done reading the text off.

Unit: IntelliStar 2 XD (I think)
Location: Wichita, KS
Provider: Cox Communications

This is Jaden, I am under Cox on the Topeka market. I do encounter the same issue with The Weather Channel's SAP, I believe it may be of fault on Cox's end. It is only The Weather Channel where you have to enable SAP just to not hear Anna reading back the alerts, usually I forget it on and I'll change the channel and hear the SAP audio because it was left on because Anna talks on the non-SAP audio feed for whatever reason.
