Question about RCA RCR860 Remote Control

1 Answer

SAT/CBL button changes my RCA TV to channel 02

We have DishNetwork DVR unit with an older RCA TV. The code for Dishnetwork works great. However, whenever we hit the SAT/CBL button, the RCA TV changes channels from 03 to 02. The echostar dish unit uses channel 03 on the TV.

How do we get the SAT/CBL button to stop this nonsense?

My remote will not turn the tv on or adjust the sound, it will change channels

First, try pressing TV on the remote, check if that solves the problem. Then press Sat and try the TV power button again. If the remote previously controlled the TV, you lost the code for the TV. If you have your Dish Network manual, check if you wrote down the code when it was originally programmed. Which specific remote/receiver do you have? The programming directions and code lists are available here: . You can also scan all of the codes to find the correct one: see . Additional remote/receiver manuals are here: .

The direct coding procedure for the Dish remote that I have is: while facing the TV to be controlled (after adjusting the key for TV1/TV2 in a multiple TV system), press and hold TV until all four indicators light up. Then enter the 3 digit code. Press and release the # key. Then see if the code TV powers off when you press Power. Then press Sat and check if the TV power button works. Try additional codes if the TV doesn't respond.

If you recently got a new TV and you tried to program the remote for your TV, your dish remote may not have the code you need. (Most universal remotes are limited to codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed.) In that case, you should use the TV remote (and see if it has an option to control the satellite receiver). Alternatively, get a new universal remote that will control all of your devices. (The remotes that can be programmed by USB are the easiest to set up.)

I hope this helps.

My screen is gray and i cant change the chanel!

Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. If the problem is on TV1, try using the TV manufacturer remote to change the inputs on the TV (the button may say input, TV/Video, or source). If the problem is on TV2, try using the TV manufacturer remote to change the TV to channel 60 or 73. When/if you get a picture, make sure to press the "SAT" button one time on the DISH Network remote. If your problem is still not resolved, try going to, or feel free to post back here. Hope this helps.

I have bose v30, dishnetwork 612 dvr. When

I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues.

What is happening is that when video resolution changes (like from regular programming to commercials) the video information is poorly sent down the HDMI line. Component cabling from your DVR will eliminate this problem.

I hope that helps.

Loose sound when changing channels

If your using HDMI. The HDMI technology in version 1.1 & 1.2 was riddled with problems. Check your owners manual for version.Or, try the Coaxial Digital or optical output from your sat receiver to your Yamaha receiver, go into "GUI" "Menu" not sure which on the HTR series and Lock the audio input to Coaxial or Optical on CBL/SAT. Then Test. If it still has issues, check the settings for Audio on the SAT receiver and make sure they are correct. If you still have a problem, use a standard RCA from the sat receiver to the Yamaha. At this point audio should be rock solid on analog. Look on the back of your DSS receiver for the model # & write it down. Then go into the units menu "SAT" and check it's firmware version for version and date. It may need an update. Go to your Sat's website, Directv or Dishnetwork and go to support, enter model # and look for any updates that may apply. Hope this helps

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?

if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.

Not able to scan stations

I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!
