Cinema 600 and Frontier Fios Remote Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello.  First post here... Hope someone can help.

 

Got a Cinema 600 recently and am very happy with the sound.  The remote works fine.

 

The problem I'm having is that my cable remote for my Frontier Fios will adjust the volume of the soundbar.  I don't just mean the volume buttons.  I'll be using the directional arrows on the cable to navigate the channel guide, for example, and my Cinema 600 volume with change as I press the button.

 

The Frontier remote is set to work with my Sharp TV, but I had no interest in in working with the Klipsch soundbar.

 

Any ideas?  

 

Thanks!  : )

I had the same issue with my spectrum cable remote changing my cinema 600 volume.  I haven't found a way to resolve the issue completely, but I found a workaround that has lessened my irritation.

After adjusting the volume I press the LED button several times.  Now when my cable remote interferes with my soundbar it changes the LED setting instead of the volume.  This may work for you as well. 

If anyone knows of an actual fix please reply...

Thanks.

I suggest you open a case with Klipsch Tech Support. They are the ones most likely to know what might be happening,

I’ve been having the same issue with the verizon FIOS remote where it turns to Cinema 600 volume way up or down depending on when we fast forward or rewind. Any other ideas to fix this? Can’t believe it’s not an issue for everyone.

I can see where this could be annoying. 😞

 

Here's a couple of suggestions:

  1. Separate the soundbar and the other device from each other as much as possible so that the other device's remote is not pointing at the soundbar when you use it.
  2. If that doesn't work, try to find a universal remote for the FIOS/other device. Maybe you can find one with a more focused infrared beam that won't affect the soundbar.

I know these aren't the perfect solutions you were hoping for but they may help.

I figured out what to do. I programmed the soundbar to a remote control of a tv i dont use. ( borrow one if need to)  now it doesn't respond to my Sony remote! Or my Verizon fios remote

I'm having the same problem with cinema 800 and Verizon fios remote. I have started a conversation with Klipsch all they said is Verizon remote not configured correctly. I never programmed it to work with sound bar. Also my sound bar turns on by itself in the middle of the night between the hours of 1am and 330am.

Hi, first time posting, I'm having same issue with my Fios remote and soundbar volume, was super excited to see how to remedy situation but in my case the solution above mentioned works until I turn tv off and then it's back to problem.
