Receiver not taking commands from the remote

I'm currently having problems using my remote on the receiver. The remote had programmed functions on it, for example the tv. The remote works on the tv, but when i change the remote to AUDIO and try to use it on the receiver it doesnt work. I've tried everything on the manual troubleshooting. I've also tried erasing all the programmed functions. All the function on the Receiver works properly, it just doesn't work on the remote. Thank You

Point the remote at a digital video camera to see if you can see the small blue infared light comming from the end of the remote when you aim it at the camera and press a button. if you do see the light then your receiver has a system control problem I'm afraid. You see your eyes cannot see the infared light but the camera optics can. Good Luck

  • Teach Learning Commands
  • Receivers: 222k and 722k
    1. Ensure the DISH Network remote control is programmed to the desired remote address to operate the DISH Receiver.
    2. Place both the DISH Network remote and the original equipment's remote control on a flat, stable surface.
    3. On the DISH Network remote, press and hold the mode button for your equipment for about three seconds until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release it. Your selected mode button will blink.
    4. Select the type of learning you wish to perform:
      • Hybrid Mode
        1. Press and release RECALL, then hold the RECORD button for about three seconds until the mode button is lit again. The button remains lit while learning.
        2. Point the front of the original equipment's remote to face the small square (IR window) on the front left-hand side of DISH's remote. Remotes must be within 4 inches of each other.
        3. On the DISH Network remote, press the button you want to teach.
        4. On the original equipment's remote control, press and hold the button you want learned. If the DISH Network remote learns the command, the mode light blinks off and then back on. If the mode light blinks three times or remains lit, the DISH Network remote did not learn the command. You may need to press the button on the original remote several times for the DISH Network remote to learn the command.
        5. After a button has learned a command successfully, repeat steps 3 and 4 until all commands you want have been learned.
        6. To end the learning sequence:
          • Press one of the mode buttons on the DISH Network remote. This saves all of the commands for that mode and exits learning to return to normal remote control operation.
      • Normal Mode
        1. Press and hold the RECORD button for about three seconds until the mode button is lit. The button remains lit while learning.
        2. Point the front of the original equipment's remote to face the small square (IR window) on the front left-hand side of DISH's remote. Remotes must be within 4 inches of each other.
        3. On the DISH Network remote, press the button you want to teach.
        4. On the original equipment's remote control, press and hold the button you want learned. If the DISH Network remote learns the command, the mode light blinks off and then back on. If the mode light blinks three times or remains lit, the DISH Network remote did not learn the command. You may need to press the button on the original remote several times for the DISH Network remote to learn the command.

    Harmony remote control - volume won't stop increasing when the button is pushed


    First I would check if the remote is momentarily sending out the volume command or is it sending it out continuously. You can use this trick with any IR remote. Using a digital camera with display, point the remote at the camera and press the volume button on the remote. If the IR led is working then you should see it glow on the cameras screen. When you release the volume up button, the IR led should stop glowing. If it does not stop then you may have a sticky key or a problem with the program. If it shuts off then the Harmony is functioning ok and there is a problem with your receiver. Another way to test this is to press the volume up button and then immediately cover the remote with a blanket or take it to another room or remove the batteries. Let me know if the remote is continuously sending out the Volume command or is it momentary.
    Hope this helps.

    Program remote to replace all remotes


    Hi, yes of course it is possible! First off, you have to make sure that your Dish device it set on remote address 1 in order for it to be controlled by the Harmony. Then, once you add the device to your Harmony account, if there are any functions that are missing, you can learn them right from the original remote .

    Adding a device:
    1. In the software, clcik 'Add Device'
    2. Follow the on screen instructions.

    Learning a command:
    1. In the software, click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for your Dish device.
    2. Go down to the bottom of the page where it says 'Learn a new command'
    3. Type in a name for your command, and click 'Learn'
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Hope that helps you get this set up right!

    You need a learning remote or a "Logitech Harmony" or a "Universal Remote Control" (Brand name) Yamaha uses "Discrete Power Commands"
    You will not find those in any remote under $70 or $80.00
    If you don't want to spend the money, program the Yamaha's Remote to control your devices. It will control all features and functions, it will just take some time to program. Hope this helps

    Programming Harmony 880 Remote to Mute with CC on Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100


    Do you use a Home Theater receiver along with your televison?  Are other components, such as a DVD player, VCR, Blu-ray player, etc. connected?
    If so, it's possible that the Mute function on your remote is muting the sound from your receiver, and not the TV itself.
    If that's the case, you'll need to look at the details of the "default" buttons for your activities, and see whether the Mute function is associated with your TV or your receiver.  If it's set for the receiver, you need to change it to be associated with the TV.

    If this is a recent occurrence, unplug receiver for 20 minutes. This will reset the receiver. If the remote is programmable, reprogram it for the receiver. If you do these steps and it does not work, you need a different remote.
