Try 627 for Vizio TVs - that should work on the Dish remote.

    Go to Vizio's support center online at and check out "How do I program my VIA remote to run my Satellite Receiver?". Once I reset my satellite to read channel 1 rather than 5 the first Vizio code the system auto-tried worked!!! WOOHOO!

Have a new Etec tv and having trouble programing to dishnetwork remote control, need the program code


I was unable to find any codes for an Etec TV in our system. I would recommend doing a power scan which I have listed below to see if you can scan the code in.

Power Scan to TV:

1.) With the TV on, press and hold the TV button (about six seconds) on top of the remote until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press and release the red power button, then press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the TV. If the code for the TV comes up, it will power off.
3.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

Code for TV/Video button on Dish remote will not change Vizio tv to other components.

Hi dclapper222, not all codes give our remotes full functionality; though we do have some other codes we can try!

A few of the codes for a Vizio TV that we have are 627, 66, 505, 222, 678, 232, and 458. You can find more codes or instructions at this link: I have outlined the steps below to program your remote to your TV.

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Hope that helped! Let me know here if you have any other questions!

We just got a new vizio tv and we have all the same receivers. we have a 722 receiver but the ir remote will not work.

Hello Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service here. Vizio tv's almost always program to 505 so try this code first. To program this hold the clear tv button down for about 4 seconds the other mode buttons will light up. Once they are all lit hit 505 and pound. If that doesn't take care of it use this link:

I have an RCA tv and I can't find a code that will work with my dish 5.3 remote. in addition I even tried to do the ir programing and can't get it to work. Can this remote be used with RCA?

Here are some steps and codes for your tv and DISH Network. I hope this helps.

1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

Can't get the tv/input button to work on dish remote control with vizio tv. need it to view local channels run off antenna

Hi there! This is Kimberly Escobar with Dish Network. Just ran across your post and wanted to help. In order to get the remote to possibly work the Inputs on your T.V the remote needs to be programmed to your Vizio T.V. In order to do this we have certain codes that can be integrated into the remote. Some of the codes for a Vizio T.V are 505, 671, and 627. The procedure is press and hold the clear T.V buttton located at the top of your remote until you see all the other buttons light up in red, once they are lid up enter one of your codes followed by the pound key for example: 505#. The T.V button should light up 3 times you can then try the remote to see if it works your T.V

Unfortunately we cannot promise it will completely function the T.V so it might bu that input button does not work. If you need any help please contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH.
