Set video source to TV on spectrum remote

Is there a way to program the “video source” button on the spectrum remote to always send the TV mode video source signal?

ie. I have programmed the remote to always send the AUX mode volume signal, since all my sound comes through my AUX device. Even when I am in cable mode (changing cable channels or turning on power to the cable box) my volume buttons always adjust my AUX device.

I would like something similar for the « video source » button. I don’t want to have to switch to TV mode (by hitting the TV button) in order to change my TV’s input. I would like that button to effect the TV, regardless of my mode.

    Hi @Somebody, welcome to our community!

    The exact functions and capabilities of our remotes can vary between make/model. I do not believe any can be programmed to change a button to only be for a specific source, though some remotes may have a source button which only goes to TV by default. You can visit our Program your Remote page to see programming instructions and manuals for all the remotes, so you can check the capabilities of yours.
