Can the Power and Volume buttons be disabled?

Can the power on button and the volume/mute buttons be disabled?  I received my new Roku Ultra and finally got it set up, but when I scroll through the apps my hand hits the mute button.  Even going through the tv  guide on some of the apps my hand will hit the mute button.  Would have been better if it was higher on the side.  I would just like to disable them if it is possible. The old Ultra did not have the mute button so  no problem with it.

Re: Can the Power and Volume buttons be disabled?

You would need to un-pair your remote.  I know how to re-pair, but not how to un-pair.  Anybody?

As a fallback, the volume/mute/power signals are sent to the tv via line of sight IR signals.  If you block the IR emitter at the top end of the remote with some black electrical tape it should do what you want.
