Is it possible to NOT have a DVR in either record or play mode shut down during an emergency alert test?

This has happened to me several times, and I'm sure, to others.  


Often, a DVR will be shut down in record mode during a program that is only being run once or is on its last run.  Sometimes, a second chance to record won't be possible.


Can Verizon help?

I am sorry , but it is not possible. The EAS tests are a forced interruption to all boxes and equipment. There is no way around this. We are required to test the system regularly by law.
