Re: need code for my dish network remote to operate sony...
I had a device (I forget the brand name) but I could not find the code. There is a way to check all the codes one by one and it didn't take me very long. I can't remember exactly how to do it though.
it was something like you enter this one specific code that allows you to keep trying to turn the device off and each time you try it will go to the next code. When the device turns off you know you have the right code and you press a button to lock it in.
I did it through bright house but I would think that dish has something similar. I found it on the bright house website from the problem solving menu. Try looking for something similar at the dish net website.
Hope that helped. Wish I could be more specific.

Hello rcbriggs, my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. We would have remote codes for you home theater system but it would depend on the model of the DISH remote that you have to give you the right one. What model DISH receiver/remote do you have? You can also try a Power Scan to get the volume to work with your DISH remote. Here are the steps for a Power Scan: With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. Press and release the Power button. AUX Mode: Before pressing and releasing the Power button. Press 0 for a TV, Press 1 for a VCR/DVD and Press 2 for any other device. Then Press STAR (*). Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

The Sony RM-YD029 Remote control will work with the Dish Network VIP722 DVR HD Satellite Receiver, but the Dish Network VIP722's Primary remote address must be set to 1.
The procedure below will allow Sony RM-YD029 remote control to operate Dish VIP722.
Using the Dish Network Remote Control - 1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page 2. In the system
info page the primary remote address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that
says IR and indicates you the channel your remote control one is
configured. The Sony RM-YD029 will work when this primary remote address number (in the white box) is set to 1.
If the Primary Remote Address of your VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:
1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds. 2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote 3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote 4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting) 5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page
Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your Sony remote control per the instructions in the manual or Sony's web site. My 722 works with Sony IR code - 01775.
If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.
Refer to page 82 in your Dish Network User's Guide......(Make sure Sony system is powered on and in DVD mode with a disc in the player). Point Dish remote at Sony box - Hold Aux until all buttons light up at top....press 2 - then STAR button* and then POWER button - then press the up arrow key repeatedly until Sony turns off - press # key to lock in code.
It took me awhile to get it to work....it will only work power, mute, and volume - not dvd play functions.
Refer to page 85 to make the Dish remote control the Sony box volume by default.
