HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.

If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

I can't turn my TV off with the Verizon FIOS universal remote.

Try the following codes. I know you stated that you were given codes so ignore any that you already have tried:

Verizon FIOS
Vizio 0891, 0912,1783

Alternative Codes
1758, 0178, 1756, 0128, 0117, 1017, 1078, 0030, 0056, 0205, 1292, 0057

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.

Off air with SIR TS160

Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
Good Luck
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.
