DISH VIP612 Program AUX Remote Code 2


DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program AUX Remote Code

7c06801.jpg

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control your receiver, tuner, stereo, second TV or second VCR using your remote's AUX mode? (Instructions to setup a primary TV or a VCR are a little different, but can be found here.)

e818a57.jpg

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote, follow these steps to enter the remote control codes to control a device with the AUX mode:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Find the brand name of the device you would like to control in the control code tables on page 112 of the Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 User Manual.
  3. Press and hold the AUX mode button until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The AUX mode button will flash.
  4. Press 0 for a TV, 1 for a VCR, or 2 for a receiver, amplifier or tuner.
  5. Enter one of the three-digit codes from the tables in the manual.
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times.
  7. Press POWER to turn off the device. If the device does not turn off, skip to step 9.
  8. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If the code works, stop here.
  9. If the code didn't work, repeat steps 3 through 7 with the next device code from the tables in the manual.
Your device control codes for your amplifier or other AUX device are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612.

Now you probably want to set your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote up so that it always controls the volume of your stereo, rather than of your TV, regardless of whether it is in SAT, TV, VCR or AUX mode. Help for this remote control programming can be found here.

(Help for programming a TV or VCR using the TV or VCR mode buttons can be found here.)

I hope that helps.

On my dish network remote the vcr mode light is turning on but it is not turning on my vcr


Are the other buttons on the remote working fine? If not, you will want to replace the batteries. If so, you can reprogram your remote to your VCR. The link below will provide you with the steps and the link for the codes is provided in step 1.

Troubleshooting vcr


Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Limited Mode

What is DISH Solo DVR VIP 612 Limited Mode?

You can program your remote control in Limited Mode to keep from accidentally changing the channel on your TV or VCR and causing a snowy or blue screen.

  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for TV mode, you will only be able to use POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME functions for your TV.
  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for VCR mode, you will only be able to use POWER and the VCR functions for your VCR.
Note: Limited Mode is not used with amplifiers (AUX mode).

I hope that helps.

Would you like to autoscan program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control your TV, VCR, receiver, or stereo?


e818a57.jpg

To auto-program device codes into your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote by searching for the code, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Press and hold the mode (TV, VCR, or AUX) button until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The mode button will flash.
  3. FOR AUX MODE ONLY - Press 0 for a 2nd TV, 1 for a 2nd VCR, or 2 for a receiver, amplifier or tuner. Then press the STAR (*) button.
  4. Press POWER to put your remote into scan mode.
  5. Press the UP or DOWN ARROW repeatedly until your device turns off. Each arrow press tries the next code your remote knows for your selected device type. When your device turns off, you have found a compatible code. When the remote runs out of codes to try, the device will flash rapidly eight times.
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times as it stores the found code.
  7. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If all functions work, your remote has been successfully programmed.
  8. If the code didn't work, repeat this scanning procedure to find a more compatible code. When your device turns off during your next scan, press the arrow key again until the device turns back on to signify you have found the next compatible code.
Your device's remote control codes for your TV, VCR, or receiver are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control.

(The other way to program your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control is to look at the tables in back of the user manual, and enter the code directly.)

I hope that helps.
