Codes are hard to come by for this brad as it more than likley is s a sub brand for a major mfg. however you can take your dish remoter and use a powerscan to find a correct code. do this by holding down the SAT button till all lights light up at the top, then enter the code 500 then press pound, Now press the SAT again till they light up then release, then press teh big red power buton once, then press teh blue up arrow onece every 2 seconds until you tv shuts off, ( dont go to fast or you will pass up code. as soon as your tv shuts off, press the pound key and your ready to go with power and volume.

Dish remote will not control the tv with any of the codes provided. Is there a solution?

Hello!!! Remotes can be tricky sometimes!!! Try a power scan. It scans the TV for the right code, instead of inputting codes.

1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Hope this helps!!

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program TV VCR Remote Code

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program TV or VCR Remote Code


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


To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote, follow these steps to enter the remote control codes to control a primary TV or a VCR:

  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 612 User Manual.
  3. Press and hold the mode button (TV or VCR) until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The mode button will flash.
  4. Enter one of the three-digit codes from the tables in the manual.
  5. If you want to program Limited Mode, press 1. If not, skip to the next step. (You can add or remove Limited Mode later.)
  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 8 with the next device code from the tables in the manual.
Your device control codes for your TV or VCR are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR VIP 612.

Help for programing a tuner, receiver, 2nd VCR, or 2nd TV using the AUX mode button can be found here.

I hope that helps.

I got dish net work installed yesterday and it worked fine but when i turned the tv on the next day it was nothing but static and i cant figure out how to fix it so whats wrong and how can i fix it?


The static you are getting on your TV is because the TV is not on the correct channel or input setting. With the 311 receiver, there is either a coax or an RCA cable (yellow, white, red) going from the receiver to the TV. If you have a coax cable, the TV should be on channel 3 or 4 (usually channel 3). With the RCA cable, the TV should be on an input setting. You'll need to go through your input settings until you find the picture. Of course your DISH receiver needs to be powered on. I hope this helps.
