This FIOS remote for my HD box is driving me up a wall. I replaced the batteries with Duracells three times in the last month. The remote is so sluggish it's pathetic.Once I'm in a menu screen I find it almost impossible to get back to my tv screen.I hit the buttons and have to wait 3 seconds or more for a response. My box is only a feet from where I'm sitting and it's not blocked or behind glass. Any tips to get the remote to be faster? Thanks.

No many other people have commented on the sluggish remotes also!
Really? I have multiple FiOS remotes and have never had a problem with any of them. Sluggish or otherwise. I had a DVR that needed replacing because it was sluggish and an STB that died, but the remotes have been very solid. And of all the many threads about FiOS here or at DSLReports or AVS Forum, I can't recall seeing many "Bad Remote" threads. You should try another one. Though to switch providers because of a - possibly - bad remote seems a bit drastic, no? 🙂

Also there is a little known settings adjustment that might correct your issue as well.
Go to menu > settings > audio/video > SD Override and basically your tv doesn't like whatever setting is in there.
So if it's stretch, turn it off, if it's off set it for 480i or p. etc
That should fix sluggish remotes unless it's a different issue, like IR interference.

It's not the aspect ratio it's the video processing. Which is the faster processor (as in which device tv/stb? is controlling the video processing) the stb processor or the tv processor. hence the OFF option
