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.

    My Dish Network remote will change the channels but will not operate the volume. I receive my local channels via the local cable company. The Dish remote will not switch to T.V. I cannot use the Dish remote to access local channels. Additionally, the remote that came with the Old RCA G26251TN does not work. I cannot find a RCA code that will work with the Dish Network remote or the original remote that came with the T.V. It is unfortunate that the remote problem is not mentioned prior to becoming a dish customer.

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

I have vizio tv and i wana use the dish remote for my tv 2 how 2 program?

Hello there! this is Kimberly Escobar with Dish Network customer support, just ran across your post and wanted to provide you with with information that will be helpful to you. To program your remote to your Vizio T.V you can try using some of the codes we have available that help the remote control functions of your T.V itself.

You can can your volume or turning off and on the T.V it should work. For further assistance you should also find this link very helpful as well as contacting us directly. Hope this helps!

We just got a new vizio tv and we have all the same receivers. we have a 722 receiver but the ir remote will not work.

Hello Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service here. Vizio tv's almost always program to 505 so try this code first. To program this hold the clear tv button down for about 4 seconds the other mode buttons will light up. Once they are all lit hit 505 and pound. If that doesn't take care of it use this link:

My friend has a Vizio model E470VA and Dish network. But the Dish remote will not control the volume / mute on the tv reliability. The on/off button works perfectly. Remote has been replaced also...

Hello, my name is Becki Barned, and I am with Dish Network customer service. To program the remote to a Vizio tv, there are a couple approaches that you may take. First is, follow this link: which walks you through it. Or do these steps: 1. Hold down the TV mode button until all mode buttons at the top of the remote light up, then release. 2. Punch in the code 505. 3. Press the pound (#) button on the keypad. Use either of these, and that remote will work great! Just make sure after you get the volume working, that you press the SAT button on the remote! If you have any other questions, blog back, or you can find us on Twitter!!!!
