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.
