Help! Anyone know anything about Philips recorders?

Anyone know how to change the remote code on a Philips DVDR so that it won’t pick up stray signals from outside the house? Twice now, we’ve turned the unit on and found it sitting on MTV, which I’ve not watched in YEARS! And Thursday night, right in the middle of the DVR recording of Flash Forward, it suddenly switched over to one of those Pirates of the Caribbean movies that was apparently on USA Network that night. :( I like Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow as much as the next person, but NOT when I’m right in the middle of watching Flash Forward.

This has happened before, with one of our Panasonic units, but Panasonic is really good, in case you’ve got multiple Panasonic units, you can change the remote frequency code to either a 1, 2, or 3, so that each remote only works for a single unit and doesn’t affect the others. And we’ve used that on two other occasions when apparently a neighbor bought a new unit, and suddenly we found OUR recordings changing over to the wrong channels at really weird times. We changed to a different frequency, and problem solved.

Don’t find ANY instruction on how to do that in the Philips manual for our DVDR unit. I’ve sent tech support an email, but since it’s the weekend, don’t expect to hear back from them any time soon, so thought I’d use the power of Twitter and Facebook to see if anyone has run into this with a Philips unit, and how to fix it.

Help? Anyone? Anyone? BUELLER? 😀
