Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control
The remote used to work in several areas of the house. It works in the room with the receiver, but will not work from any other room. I ordered a new UHF/IR antenna and re-programmed the remote. I can't seem to get anything to work.
If you want a remote that works via IR to control the satellite receiver you will need a IR only. The IR/UHF type only transmits signals to the receiver by UHF and the IR portion only operates the peripherals in the room such as the TV and VCR. There are some remotes that come with a kit that can change the remote to work as an IR only. I believe you have a TV2 remote and want it to work further away from the receiver particularly the room the TV is in. If this is the case you may have have to change the remote address of the new remote to match that of the old. You can do this by taking the number one remote and pressing menu-menu. Now take the new remote and press and hold the SAT button in the upper left of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Now key in the two digit number on the tv screen at remote address for tv2. Then press the pound sign and the SAT button will flash three times then press the record button and the TV2 icon should flash. Now you can cancell out of the screen on tv one and try the remote at the TV2 location. I believe this will fix your issue if not let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
