Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

Open Question

Have VIP211k Dish receiver in my RV, Winegard Traveller satellite, HDMI switch splitter 4x4 box (by Cat5), s Sony blue-ray DVD player, AND 4 Samsung tvs. I am unable to get the tvs to change channels from any location other than standing directly in front of the dish receiver and pointing. I have an Infared Extender & 4 EXTERNAL Infared (IR) emitters - none of which seem to work. I have changed receivers (211k) twice and that got me nowhere. Please, does anybody have an idea???

SOURCE: Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.

The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

SOURCE: I have a Dish IR. Not sure of the model number.

It is possible that those buttons have failed, but a bit more likely the remote lost the codes for the TV itself... since almost everything the remote controls... is on the DVR. I apologize if I am guessing wrong in assuming other "TV" buttons (like INPUT) don't function either.

To re-program your remote to recognize your TV (like when the tech first set up the system) choose from the following receiver types to find the correct remote control TV codes for your Zenith.

Remote TV Codes for 722/622/612/411/222/211 Receivers
Remote TV Codes for 625/522/512/510/508/501 Receivers
Remote TV Codes for 811/381/322/311/301 Receivers

    I have no signal,what can I check?


    OK Joan,, I might need more info. not getting signal could be caused from several things.. one make sure the Dish Antenna is mounted correctly, (level, and true, [one degree off on earth is like 700 miles off at the Satellite.]) check you cables and make sure they is now wire touching the center core of the coax. if the coax has splitters, connections etc outside check for the corrosion inside the threads.
    make sure the coax coming into the house is connected to the right place on back of the 222k. make sure u are on the right Video stream for the HDMI. are u getting any picture showing the Dish set up or is the screen all Blue.. if it is blue try to use the remote that came with ur TV (RCA, Vizio, Phillips,,,,etc) and look for the input, source , or Antenna button and push it to match your HDMI input..

    Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

    If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

    Hi Martin,

    A wiring Schematic is not that you should be looking. What you need is large feeders to understand hot to connect to various ports to give your desired output.

    8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up


    Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

    Cant get the wiring figured out.........


    I have a similar set up. For yours, I would run one optical from your Sat box to your 407 and connect the DVD player optical to the Kenwood as well. This will allow you to get whatever your watching, DVD or Satellite to your speakers. For Video, use the component cables to connect DVD player to TV. For the SAT box, coaxial to TV or S video to TV will give you about the same video quality. I hope this helps. A couple of suggestions: Your new screen size will greatly magnify the quality of your video, what looked good on the Sharp may not look good on the Samsung due to the size difference. I REALLY suggest you get a new SAT box with a HDMI connection. Also you can get a blu ray player in the $120 range. The Blu ray will play blu rays and upconvert DVDs to a higher quality picture through its HDMI connection. You will be amazed at the difference HDMI will make on how your TV will look!

    What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
