[DVR] Can STB be made to remember "cell phone" search preference

Can STB be made to remember "cell phone" search preference ?
There are a few places where I can choose between 2 different text input modes: keyboard and cell phone standard. For me keyboard sucks and the cell phone standard rules. No matter where I select it, after a day or two my choice disappears, i.e. it reverts to "keyboard". TIA if you can tell me how to make my choice stick. TIA if you know it cannot be done, so I will stop searching for how to do it. QE in NJ

I've noticed that it changes when I use the iPhone FiOS remote tool. If I don't use the iPhone app, the settings stay as I set them.

Ahhhh Jah - iPad Remote was the perp. But it may also help with the solution - if I use it to select "cell fone" mode then it seems to force the STB into that mode. I did experience the opposite as you pointed out, then dinked around. BTW, there's no good reason to use either of the STB's on-screen methods when using the FIOS REMOTE APP, there's a big button at the top of the iDevice screen labeled Keyboard that gives you a full iOS type keyboard. Also, sliding the bottom part of the screen reveals 3 different collections of goodies. Cheers all, QE in NJ

yeah, Ill ammend my post to agree that it seems to (mostly, but not exclusively) occur when I use the remote app on my droid..
