When you have been programming the remote to control the FiOS box, have you been following the steps shown HERE? As there are 2 types of remote that can be used with the CineMate shown on that page, can you please let me know which one you have? Once I know which remote you are using, I'll be able to see what tricks there are to get it up and running with your cable box.
I look forward to hearing back from you!
