Is there a FIOS TV set box with an RF capable remote. I am interesting in converting to FIOS TV, but my primary TV is flush mounted to the wall with the dish network converter box in a separate room.

Use an RF remote from a third party.
Harmony 890 - Zwave, also can control lighting, $250
Harmony 1000 - $350
One for All URC 9910 - cheap, $35

To use the FIOS remote get an RF IR extender. They cost $30-50. You aim the FIOS remote at a small device in the living room and it uses RF to send to a companion device that converts the signal back to IR.

You may not be able to get everything to work on the third party remotes, but the common functions will work.
