Dish Network Remote

I have a Vizio P42 and need the DishNetwork remote set up to control the TV. The techie from DishNetwork couldn't solve the problem. Can you help out? I have a list of codes from the internet but they don't work and Vizio is not listed in the DishNetwork manual.

Re: Dish Network Remote

Not every remote is capable of controlling every unit via remote codes. however, there is a set up in the manual that takes time to use. basically you will use the output from one remote to establish the same output for the new remote. its a step by step process. try a universal remote such as theater master which allows you to use a computer to control functions by assigning them to certain keys. this will be far easier. the mx700 is a capable unit for complex functions on multiple equipment and has a screen to guide you during actual use as to what each key is going to do. you will set up the specifications yourself, such as channel up or channel down, or menu or guide. you get to use already established key locations or choose from 10 along side the screen to state whatever you want, and then after its set up, those buttons do the work you programmed them to do.
good luck

We're sorry to hear about Vizio TV remote, but we would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Networkremote to control your TV. We're going to start by pressing and holding the TVbutton located on the top of your remote until all mode button back lights comeon, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter the codes for your Vizio TV; here some of the codes we currently have: 505, 598, 627, 520, and 766. Press the pound (#) button. To check that the code works try severaldifferent functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV.Remember that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this isthe case, try the other codes listed for that device until you find one that iscompatible with your equipment.

We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

Sometimes the remotes have a hard time programming to the tv. Below is the link to the steps for a power scan. Instead of needing a code to program the remote, the remote will scan through the codes on the tv until it reaches the one that works. I hope that this helps!!!!
