Hi, I just got TV service for the first time in 15 years. I have the Verizon ultimate package (got a $500 gift card); I pay $125 a month for 350 or so channels, 50 MB/s Internet and phone. I really only wanted the Internet but Verizon didn't offer 50 down Internet without the TV. In any case, I have a few questions:
1) Is there a way I can remove channels from the guide, so I can easily stick to the channels I like to see what is on?
2) Is there a way to configure the Verizon FIOS P265v2 remote control to control the volume on my receiver? If not, what universal remote do you recommend? I am tired of having 6 remotes. I'd prefer to spend under $50 if possible.
3) My Verizon box is hooked up via HDMI to my Denon 2310 AVR, and then the AVR to Sony Bravia TV via HDMI. Is this the optimal configuration? Or should I use optical for sound to get better sound quality?
