Dualing Remote Controls for Dish Network

Evidently someone in our neighborhood has the same frequency remote control we have for our 2nd television (designated T.V. 2).

We constantly battle to control what we're watching - neighbors apparently don't have the same tastes we have. Is there a way to shield our receiver from unwanted channel-surfing?

Pick up remote #2 press and hold sat key until it blinks press record 3 times . press red power button and if tv2 light goes off and on the remote should work again for tv2 .

SOURCE: How do I program an Echostar 5.4 IR to control a

Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I came across your post recently and wanted to see if I could help. The best codes for the 5.4 IR remote are 500, 578, 514 and 758. I will also list here for you the instructions for addressing your DISH remote to your Sony TV. I hope you find these codes and instructions useful and if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com. Thanks and have a great day!

Instructions for addressing remote to TV.

  1. Turn the Television On
  2. Press and Hold the TV Mode button until all other mode buttons light up red.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press the pound (#) button once.
    Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

I have a nuwire for my remote controls for mulitiple items and i can't get it to work on my dish network system


romaneastwoo,

What type receiver is your TV connected to? Do you know your remote model number - located on back of the remote at the top (ex. 2 digit number 5.3 ir). The majority of our TV 1 remotes work in IR mode. If this universal remote uses UHF frequency, it will not work for the IR frequency. Please let me know your receiver and remote types and I will see if there is anything we can do for this remote.

Have a new Vizio LCD tv , My Dish remote will not work only manual at the the box what wrong


Hello, Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service. on those lcd tv's they will interfere with your remote. You have two solutions, you can turn off the back light feature in the tv menu, or you can set the remote to a uhf frequency which will probably require a new remote.

How do I program a 2nd remote to my sattilite


mandysnw,

Here is a website on how to program the remote.
http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup. Not all remotes are compatible with all receivers. Plus if the receiver controls 2 TVs, there is a colored tab on the bottom of the remote that controls the remote functions. I hope this helps.

If you are using the remote to operate an IR frequency, you can program that component to the VCR or AUX button on the new remote. I have provided the instructions on how to program the remote. I hope this helps.


Address To 2nd IR Receiver Using AUX Mode
  • Remote: 3.4, 4.4, 5.3, 5.4, 6.3, 6.4, 20.0, and 21.0
    1. Go to 2nd IR receiver
    2. Go to System Info Screen
    3. Hold down the AUX button until all mode lights light up.
    4. Press 3 then enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
    5. Press the pound (#) button
    6. Once the AUX button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 4 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
