Is it possible to unpair the remote from my TV?

Hello!

 

I do not want my UPC box remote to switch my TV on and off. Quite often, my TV is already on when I want to switch to the UPC box. Comically, when I switch on the upc box, it switches my TV off and I get stuck in ridiculous cycle of one machine off and the other one on.

 

I know you can change the model of TV that is paired with the UPC box but I couldn't see an option where it isn't paired at all.

 

I read another older community post that suggested  damaging a pin on the HDMI plug which seems a bit unnecessary.

 

Any suggestions would be great!

You're replying to a spammer!  However, your answer is a useful one.

 

Another way to strip CEC is at the hardware level with something like this:
