In the past, I scoured the menus of the VIP211 and never managed to
find such an option.  If you get a chance, I would love to know
precisely where it is.

By the way, I prefix my channel change commend with both "Down" and
"Select" codes (in that order).  If you accidentally tune to an
unsubscribed channel, the receiver is left in a state where it will
only respond to Up or Down, and not Select or a channel number.
