Disable remote finder

My cat loves to sit on my nice warm Roku Ultra, and she usually manages to trigger the remote finder button, which causes the remote (which is sitting right where I can easily find it on my desk) to ding incessantly.

Is there any way to disable that function in the Roku settings?

Re: Disable remote finder

None that I know of.  Can only change the sound of the the locator from sonar, whistle, or referee whistle.  Short of using a universal remote (if you don't mind the cat sitting on the Ultra) I think that's it.  The universal remote wouldn't be recognized by the ultra's locate feature.

I guess you could also fashion a little raised cover over the locate button so it couldn't be pressed down also.  Little piece of foam or plastic.
