You probably just need to set the remote address on the remote to that on the receiver.

Press menu twice on the front panel of the receiver and you should be able to see the remote address displayed. If not just press and hold the SAT button down on the upper left of the remote until all lights light up across the top and release. Now key in 0-1 and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times and now press the record button. You should now be able to control your programming and receiver. Thanks for using Fix Ya. If you need further he; let me know.

Codes for innovage universal remote to program it with my dish network box


Hi Gw, my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. I understand you want to program your innvoage remote to our DISH receiver. When we send out our DISH receivers we will include our own DISH universal remotes that can control many different components like; HDTV, surround sound receivers and sound bars. We do not have the codes for other universal remotes to work with our system. I will provide you a link explaining in more detail on programming your remote: http://www.ehow.com/way_5501311_innovage-jumbo-universal-remote-instructions.html

Hey Ryno4606,

It is possible, while rare, for a remote to no longer be programmed to the receiver after a reset. To fix that a simple readdress should fix the problem. I have provided the steps below to assist you with that!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I bought a new TV and need to program my Dish network remote control


Hey scrappy32847,

Congrats on the new TV! I can definitely assist you with this and get it taken care of. As I don't know what TV you have I don't have any codes off hand available.

You can check out this link: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup to get the codes to program your remote. I have also listed the steps below to program that remote to your new TV.

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

If you need any additional assistance you can reach me here or at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com

I have a haier tv a 722k receiver. my black dish network remote won't change inputs so i can use my ps3 etc.


allday70, we don't have any current codes for a Haier TV, but we can definitely check it out and help you get that programming.

As there are no codes for that TV, I would recommend trying a power scan. I have posted the steps below, though you can view this link: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup for general information on setting up remotes.

Power Scan to TV:

1.) With the TV on, press and hold the TV button (about six seconds) on top of the remote until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press and release the red power button, then press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the TV. If the code for the TV comes up, it will power off.
3.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance!

Select the model of the receiver you have, click on the link and the just follow the directions. The bottom portion of the page has links for TV codes to program the remote to your TV. If this doesn't work, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

I would like to control my dish network receiver 3100 with my samsung remote


trifonas_ger

If you are trying to use your Samsung TV remote, it will not work with our DISH receiver. Some universal remotes can be programmed to the receiver but you may not get full functionality with the universal remote. Our remotes are designed to allow for functionality for the TV if programmed to the DISH remote (volume, on/off). I hope this helps.
