    Is there any way to disable it. I find that its the most distracting and unused feature. sometimes when I am pushing the guide, list, and the worst the pause button I hit that thing.

    No. My advice is to get a universal remote. The $15 RCA RCRP05B will control every function of DirecTV receivers (SAT code 1377), and you can easily remove the active function from it. If you have a bigger budget, a low end harmony would be even better. If you need RF, the Xsight Touch will work fine as well. In any case, you can add/remove any functions you like to/from any button on those remotes.

    :) Just get a new pair of glasses so you can see what you are pressing on your remote.

    Everyone has on occasion hit the wrong button on the remote. To repeatedly do so suggests something else. If there is nothing wrong with your dexterity and vision then logic dictates you pay better attention to detail when using your remote.
