How do I get my Fios TV remote (P265) to STOP controlling my TV?

Message 1 of 4

When my FiosTV was installed, I found that my FiosTV remote was controlling my tv right out of the box (i.e. without me entering codes).  I want it to stop doing this and just have the FiosTV remote control only the STB and nothing else.  How can I do this?  Thanks!

You can reprogram it two different ways.  One, to not turn your tv on and off with the STB/DVR but still have it know your tv and control volume etc.  or, two, program it for another TV model so it sends signals thay your TV ignores.

 

see the instructions for setting up the remote.  available on your stb or at http://www22.verizon.com/ResidentialHelp/FiOSTV/Remote+Controls/SetUp/SetUp.htm#P265

haha, brilliant - program it to another tv!  i can't believe I didn't think of that!  Sounds like that should work - I'll try it later today and let you know. Thanks!

woo, set my remote as a Zenith (my tv is a Sony) and now it controls only my STB.  Thanks!
