My SB thinks that every IR remote control in my AV setup is destined for
it. I'd simply like to be able to listen to music from the SB while
channel surfing on the TV or adjusting the volume on the stereo receiver.

But the SB will usually skip back to the beginning of the song whenever
I click another remote. Or if it was off or not playing it will wake up.

The SB responds correctly to its own remote control.

Is this normal? Can I change the behavior? Is this a FAQ? I could not
find it.

thanks!
