Don't go and search for IR codes as you'll waste your time. Use the
learning method. Take your bose remote and put it on a flat surface and
point it toward the little square receiver on the dish remote (located
on the top left side). Then press the "aux" mode button on the dish
remote until all the mode buttons light up and the aux mode light starts
to blink. Then press the record button on the dish remote for 3
seconds until the aux mode button lights up and stays lit (it then stays
lit during the whole learning program). On the dish remote press the
button you want to learn but don't hold it down (I started with the up
volume) . Then press the corresponding button on the bose remote but
hold that down until the aux mode button blinks once and comes back on
(if the mode button blinks three times the dish remote did not learn the
command and you should try changing the batteries on the dish remote if
it happens repeatedly that it fails to learn). Program the remaining
commands by repeating the process of pressing a button on the remote,
then pressing and holding the corresponding button on the bose remote.
Don't be afraid to do it with the mute and the power buttons too.
During this process if you don't press a button for more than 30 seconds
it will time out and nothing will be recorded and you will need to
start again. To end the programming press the aux mode button. When
you are using the bose solo using the dish remote you just need to
remember to press the aux mode button first so it flips to command the
I can definitely provide assistance with this! Our Hopper receive uses a special function to program the remote for you.
Go to Menu > Settings > Remote Manager. Select the option, 'TV Code', 'DVD Code', or 'AUX Code', based on the type of equipment you are programming. Once selected, follow the prompts on screen and it will automatically scan for codes!
If you have other (Universal) remotes in your home try programming one of them to operate your Bose.I have a different Bose system for my TV and can operate the on/off and volume from my universal remote. The code I use is 440, I show another code of 302 that may work.
It may be that you are not using the correct code for yourparticular Bose component. I would recommend trying all of these codes: 761,664, 656, and 639. If you are still not able to use your DISH remote to controlthe volume of your Bose component, try doing a power scan. Press and hold theAUX button on the top of your DISH remote until all the mode buttons on the toplight up, then release. Press 2 then * on the number pad, press the powerbutton at the top of the remote, then keep pressing the up button on theremote. Continue doing this until your Bose unit turns off, once it has, stoppressing the up button and press the pound (#) button. Check that the code works by trying several differentfunctions on the remote to make sure it properly operates your Bose component.Keep in mind that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment.

I finally got mine fixed yesterday. The room code has to be set to 1. The VIP 612 has to be on. A phone call to Bose provided me with about 4 more codes that were not included in the setup manual, and one of them worked. Good luck with the set up, hope this helped.
