    Yes, press EXIT before it changes channels.

    Favorite list, or not, it will tune to the number you enter.

    :D When I had to some operation on my HR210-250 - HD Tivo Peanut remote, I used scissors. It would have prob been a cleaner finished look if used a [sharp] razor. And maybe even pliers.

    Thanks for the tip.

    He basically wants a button on the remote to stop doing what it is supposed to do (input a 1). There is no good answer to that. Reminds me of tech calls I get all the time from schoolteachers who want my software to be able to stop kids from pulling power cords. Just illogical.
