Were you able to figure out how to change the screen model to THX? I may have the same issue - already received a 2nd remote and have new batts but the problems continue. The Power and Volume buttons work good but the arrow keys, OK button, and Exit button in particular, only work sporadically which makes navigation very difficult. Very frustrating.
Had this problem with my Panasonic TH-50PX60 U. As stated in this and other forums it is a problem between this and other Plasma TV's and some Verizon boxes due ro IR interference. I have solved it twice (2 different boxes) once using 400 speed 35 MM film taped over the cable box display (found that on a forum). Worked fine and when the cable box was replaced with a different one the problem went away. Today I moved that TV to a different location with an older box and the problem returned. Found in this thread that somebody used post it notes. Taped a double layer of yellow post it note over the cable box display and problem solved. Yes you can no longer see the display channel etc., but the new Verizon boxes don't have that anyway.
If you can go to menu/customer support/top support tools/Fix FIOS TV issues.
Otherwise pull plug, wait 20 seconds, and plug back in.
Did you ever get to the bottom of this issue? I think its a provisioning problem. I have the same exact issue on a new HD box they shipped me (Shockingly self install fail). The remote works fine on other Cable Boxes in my house- something is up with this new box. Channels work- I can flip up and down using the remote but zero response from the other buttons.
No its not the IR - the green IR light blinks on the STB as it receives the signal when I try to do antying like hit the Guide button. Only button that does anything is the Info button which gives me a menu to set the parental controls. (Which I can set then remove fine)
Come on Verizon??

You are talking to PEERS not Verizon. Although I don't see them saying so I am sure the original user fixed this (or left Verizon) long ago.
Normally, as previously said, a reboot of box will fix such problems. Best to do it from Menu, customer support,top support tools, fix Fios Tv issues.
If that doesn't work you will probably have to call Verizon (1-800-Verizon). Most likely they will direct you to do the above again. DON"T argue, say you are doing so, but then tell them it still is having the problem. Most likely the box is bad.
Do you have the same model TV with both TVs?
Try swapping the the box that doesn't work for one that does.
There are some TVs that can interfere with the remote function.
Just because the light comes on doesn't mean it wasn't garbled.
Otherwise, if the same remote works on other STBs, then it is a defective STB (not a systemic problem).
