I plug my FiOS box into a 22″ Acer monitor using an HDMI to DVI cable. I have an old Boston Acoustic 2.1 computer speaker set that I plug in for sound. Changing the volume required standing up and walking over to the speakers. Commercials are approximately 470% louder than regular television programming, so it’s nice to control volume remotely.
These instructions are for the Philips RC 144 Remote:
1. Press and hold the STB key
2. While holding down STB, press OK
3. Release both keys, the device keys will blink twice.
4. Press 9 – 5 – 5, the STB key will blink twice
5. Press OK
Volume is now setup to change the volume on the Verizon box rather than the TV.
