Lock guide button on 8820 remote

Seems like there's been a way to do this on other remotes, but can't figure out how on the 8820. After not using the remote for a while, I have to press the "cable" button before pressing the "guide" button. If I don't, "guide" does nothing.

Is there a way to lock the "guide" button so it always is associated with the "cable" button.

I know, I know, if this is my biggest problem, life is good :)

    If you want to open the receiver's guide with the 8820, it is required to press Cable first.

    Thank you. Unless the Guide button can be used with other services, this would be a handy enhancement on future remotes. Seems like at least one Cox remote in the past had this feature.

    I appreciate you letting me know the feature is not available so I don't continue hunting for it.
