    I have the same problem on a Dish Network 510 Receiver.... temporarily, I have to "double click" to change channels. New batteries and still it doesn't work like it should.



    So far, I have not been able to get Dish Tech support to call back from their webpage. Very frustrating.

Melissa,
I am sorry to hear that you are having remote issues. Let's start with the simpleist things first. If you have a dual tuner ensure you have the right remote for the room you are in and then ensure you have the remote in SAT mode by pressing the top left SAT button. If this fails to operate the receiver and you have a menu button on the receiver press it twice. If your receiver does not have this button press the power off button and hold the channel up/down button at the same time. Releaase the power off button while holding the channel up/down button. You should be brought to the system info screen. Check the remote address for the receiver location you are at. Now press and hold the SAT button until all buttons on top light up. Now key in the two digit remote address number from the system info screen and press the pound key. The SAT button will flash three times. Now press the record button and see if you now have control over the receiver. If the remote is for a TV2 location ensure the antenna on the back of the receiver is elevated. If this is a TV2 remte and you are still having no suceess and it work previously and it no longer works at the receiver location or TV2 you will need a service call to determine if the antenna port burned out. This is a very rare case and you will more than likely need a new remote. If the remote is for TV2 and it works at the receiver but not TV2 you will need someone to pigtail the antenna or in other words move the antenna closer to the TV2 location. I hope this solves your issue. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Dish remote 2 changes channels on both tvs and dish remote 1 changes channels on both tvs


Is the receiver in dual mode? Go to the receiver, open the door, and hit the mode key. If both TVs are still showing the same thing, then the issue is not the mode.

Go to TV 2 (the one without the receiver) and make sure the TV is tuned to channel 60 or 73. If it is still showing the same thing, go to TV1 (the one with the receiver) and hit Menu, system setup, Installation, modulation (menu 6-1-5). make sure the modulation for tv2 matches which channel you put your tv2 on.

Still showing the same thing? check the back of the receiver, the RCA cables (red/white/yellow) are plugged into the TV1 ports not the TV2 ports.

Showing different things but the remote still changes channels on both tvs? Go to TV1, hit menu twice, near the bottom there are two boxes each with a number. This is the address for each remote (tv1 and tv2). On the TV2 remote hold sat until it stays lit, choose a number different than on the screen, touch pound (#), the sat light blinks three times, hit record, the number on the screen should change to match the one you typed in.

Still being silly? Call a priest, you have a poltergeist!

Ur5u-8780l not operating channels on Magnavox TV. Tried all codes and switched channel control to TV, still nothing.


If you are using a universal do not expect it to even if it programs to have all the functions you need or want or had with the original remote.

Universal remotes are far from UNIVERSAL.

The best argument for an original remote is even if it programs it will just not have all the features needed or wanted that the original had.

Hope this clears things up a little.

Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see when you try to change the channel itskips some. There are a couple of things you can check to make sure allchannels are showing. Please press the Menu button on the DISH Network remoteand on the top left it will say All and you want it to say All Channels, then youwill want to make sure all the channels in you're Programming Package arethere. If they still are not showing please unplug the receiver for 10 secondsand after plugging it back in it will power up and acquire the signal anddownload the Program Guide, you will then want to make sure all channels areshowing. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

Cant make the remote connect to the TV. Got it set up to the TV. Wont change channels and no guide will come up.


Hi there, Tommy Faust with DISH Network Executive Offices here. It sounds like the remote is not programmed to the receiver. I have included steps below to get that programmed.

1. Go to the System Information screen and check the number under Remote Address.
2. Hold SAT until all buttons on top of the remote light up.
3. Let go and while SAT is blinking enter a number between 1-15 on the number pad and press #
4. Press record 3 times and see if the number changed.

Programming my rca universal remote for basic cable the stations wont turn


I can only suggest that you Double check you have the connections correctly set ie. coax ariel to ,(dvd /digi box reciever ect...)
Also check again (& i know this is state the obvious)
your tv manual. IF you havent a manual do a google search for your tv (make & model) & search for a manual.

Ive have had a simmular experience when programming channels to a Vid-Recorder & when i finished the channels dissapeared.

I realised I didnt have the video set to the correct channel with the tv usually channel 9 or the highest channel on the tv.
So i waisted a good half hour for nothing.
