IR remote-Bizare Problem

Receiver (dual) only about 6 feet from RC. About 6pm every evening the RC quits working. We can turn the overhead light on and it works. turn it off and the RC quits again. Dish sent a different RC and it is also doing the same thing. I heard florescent lighting can cause this, but no florescent is on. HELP - any ideas. We bring the RC 2 in to den and put in single mode and the UHF receiver works great.

    Thanks, I will try this. Sorry I confused the issue. The problem was with Remote control 1 which is the infrared. Will Dish provide the IR 8.0 remote or will I need to purchase it elsewhere.

Okay I am a bit confused as to the exact problem you are having but I will give you multiple avenues to resolve thios issue.

Assuming that the issue exists with TV1's remote:

Some IR remotes experience interference with other peripherals at times. The easiest way to resolve this is to get an 8.0 remote that is IR/UHF capable.Using the front panel buttons or the old remote place the receiver into UHF Pro mode by pressing menu-6-1-6 . You should be on UHF Pro setup: move the highlight to the left and go to the enable selection, press select and move the highlight back to the right to done.exit out of all screens. Then press the menu button twice to get to the system info screen.Here we will be canging the remote address of the new 8.o remote to the number for the primary remote address. This number is near the bottom of the screen. On the 8.0 press the small SAT button in the upper left hand of the remote and hold until all light on the top light up, enter the number on the screen for the primary remote using the keypad on the 8.0, press the pound sign, the SATbutton should flashh three times, then press the record button. Now you should be able to use the new remote normally. You will need to program the remote to the TV if you were able to control volume and turn TV on and off before. Since this is a different model remote it may or may not be compatible with the TV. If you need assistance with programming the remote to the TV itself just post another request for assistance and one of Fix Ya's Expert will hook you up. You can also find the solution in the archives of previous solutions as that issue is commonly addressed in this forum.

If the issue lies with the TV2 remote I would suggest moving the antenna off the back of the receiver into the room TV 2 is located. This can be accomplished by following the following diagram. If you still need assistance please let me know. I hope this solves your issue.

    You normally would have to buy one but I might be able to get one sent to you at no charge if you call Dish and explain to them the situation. If you live close enough to a installation office most will be glad to assist you with the remote issue to eliminate a trouble call. You also may have a remote that is already capable. To check this see if you can remove the green tab and switch it to the opposite side which may be a blue TV2 tab or a black uhf pro tab. The tabs slide out pretty easily once the battery cover is removed and one can actually see if the underside of the current tab is a different color once the cover is removed. If you do not get an acceptable resolution let me know and I will see what I can do to get you one. I just have to stay within FixYa's Terms of Service.

Why doesn't my universal remote control my proscan t v I tried 4 remotes entered codes did code search also


Hello John,

To validate my theory...
4 is more than quite enough...

What you didn't say (but is NOW suspected) is that your "ORIGINAL" REMOTE had quite working... (no/yes/?)

Light or OBJECT interference with your SET's receiver
circuit board would be the most logical of reasons!

You can either SEARCH or post your model number
to find your IR receiver board.

But first try your ORIGINAL remote with a FRIENDSPROSCAN or got back to your retailer & try it there...

Changing it out is only a matter of carefully opening the set (use ESD PROTECTION (absolute MUST)... take lots of picture as EVERY WIRE & SCREW must be exactly replace... verify your OWN circuit pack numbers... and then PRICE COMPARE BETWWEEN eBay, AMAZON, SEARSPARTSDIRECT (not my favorite (or even close))... or SHOPJIMMY.COM

REMINDER: IR

Can you use an Onkyo RC-771M remote control to operate Onkyo receiver TX-SR502 ?


Unfortunately, the RC-771M remote doesn't control the TX-SR502. It will only work with these Onkyo models: TX-NR1008 and TX-NR808. The RC-567M is the one for the TX-SR502; replacement remotes that are exact replacements are still available from various places including Amazon.com .

Since the TX-SR502 was released in ~2004, that replacement remote probably won't control other devices that were released in 2004 or later. Onkyo changed its IR code programming before the TX-NR1008 was released in ~2010 and the RC-771M can't communicate with the older receiver. The manuals for the receivers listed above are still available from Onkyo on the product page under the Downloads tab.

I wish that I had better news for you.

bp22911,

It sounds like it may be an interference issue with the IR. Some LCD TV's can cause interference with an IR signal which will cause problems with the remote. Something you can try to fix is disabling the Auto Back-Lighting feature on the TV itself and see if that helps. If not, the easiest way to fix would be to make the TV1 remote UHF.

This would require a 21.0 remote as a 20.0 is IR only. Look on the back of the remote at the top to see what model you have.

With a 21.0 go to System Information. On the back of the remote inside the battery cover is a switch that says IR And UHF and make sure the green 1 is showing. Flip it to UHF and press Record 3 times. The Primary Address should now have UHF in it. Try the remote and see if it works.

If it doesn't or you continue to have problems you can post here or email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com

URC-50 Uninversal Remote won't control a Dish VIP 612 DVR. Both Companies say one is RF and the other IR so they can't "talk" to each other. How can a person "get around this" without buying another...


I don't know about the 612 but the 722 I have has green tabbed control for IR control of output 1 and by default of tuner 1 and controls the OTA tuner and will work with many IR remotes if set to address 1--they don't send the address. The blue tabbed one is for RF-controlled output 2 and tuner 2. Setting it to single (vs. dual) mode allows either remote to control tuner 1 and swap to tuner 2 and do PIP. Unfortunately the 612 does not have this mode.I haven't had a combo remote work well with tuner 1 even. It is much better to use the Dish remote for most of the work, well only volume and power on the TV. There are a lot of buttons most combo remotes will not have control of. Hey, I have 2 VIP722 and the TV remotes on the chair arm.Check with menu-menu to see which address code and control mode is set. But if manual allows and you can pull tab after opening battery slide and change switch beneath, you may be able to use as IR remote in preparation for your combo, just to be sure controls sent correctly. (Hold Sat button until all light, press address 1, press # to set remote [lights go out], then press record to set receiver while you watch menu-menu. less than 10 sec per step.)-Ken

Dish 20.0 IR Remote works for awhile then it


I MAY have a solution!! We too have the VIP722 Dish Network receiver. Ours is the "K" model. I called the place where we purchased the TV and they said that the "brightness" on the TV may need to be turned down. He walked me through this, and it worked. The remote WORKS now!! Our TV is a 40" Sony Bravia that we purchased a couple of months ago. Evidently at night, the TV was so bright in the room, it interfered with the Infared Remote control. By turning down "off" brightness detector on the TV, the IR remote was able to send the signal to the receiver. Our TV is on a cabinet and the receiver is directly underneath on a shelf. I hope this solves your problem and anyone else's that may have this problem with the remote.

Fan does not work, light does


Hello,

Your remote uses a slightly different band of IR for one and the other functions; lamp or on/off. This IR lamp or the circuit that controls the IR lamp has failed. You will need a new remote.

Hunter is good about making replacement parts available but as you said this is five years old. You may have to look for an after market seller on Ebay and chances are very good you can find a new one there.
