Stop a Joey from changing channels on Hopper I am watching?

    Well everything was working great until all of a sudden the channel I was watching changed to Dora the Explorer and I heard one my boys laughing. I understand they can join what I'm watching but it surprised me when they can not only join but change my channel. Is there a way to block that?

    I don't think so... I think the idea of joining in and sharing the viewing means either remote has equal control.

    You could be on a different tuner than they are... but if they want to join in on that one, they can keep chasing you around I expect.

    Any capability to lock-out that on a Joey would seem to essentially render that Joey useless.

    The only way to that would be to go in there and take their remote so they can't change your channel anymore. :)

    If there is a tuner free their channel change would change to the free tuner ... but yes, a Joey can change a Hopper's channel and I'd love to see that not happen.

    Pulling the cable on the Joey works. Let the gigglers learn some respect for their elders. :D

    Or have a good laugh with them about it and let them know life isn't so serious.

    :joy:
