Re: cant reprogram my sat dish

If you haven't already, try running the program in Vista's compatibility mode for XP. This page has instructions on how to do that.

If you've already tried that, or if it doesn't work when you try it, the program may simply be incompatible with Vista; if that's the case, you'll have to wait until the program's author releases a Vista-compatible version.

Get my dish reciever, sony home theatre, and 55in sanyo tv to work together

If your TV and sound system both have a Digital Optical Out/In you can use a TOSLink cable (an optical cable) to connect your TV directly to your sound system, and remove the connection between the DISH receiver and the sound system. As long as your sound system is on the right input, all sound accompanying the picture on screen will go to your sound system. Most TVs also have an option to turn off the internal speakers, if not just reduce your volume all the way down to avoid that weird ghost sound effect. If you use your sound system all the time for volume, you can program the sound system to your DISH remote's AUX, and even set the remote so that it only sends volume and mute commands to the sound system (that way you don't have to dance between sat, tv, and aux all day, just leave it in sat mode).

To program your remote to the sound system, follow the instructions on the sheet you got with the remote (yeah, right like anyone kept that) you can use that link to program your remote. You can also use the learning mode if your remote has a little glossy square on the top left side and you have the original remote to the sound system. (Learning mode can be gleaned from the remote manual Remote Control Manuals)

After programming the aux device, and verifying that it changes the volume up, down, and mute, THEN:

Hold AUX until light blinks 3 times, hit pound (#), Volume Up, 0 (Zero), pound (#), SAT, then test to make sure it goes up and down.

Dish remote 2 will not work all it does is turn on tv that's all.

Hello, Frances.

I can definitely provide some steps for you, and assist in getting this taken care of. I have listed the steps below to program the remote to your receiver. Make sure there are fresh batteries in the remote. Then take the TV2 remote to the main TV, and access the System Information screen.

From there, hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the number pad on the remote. Press the pound (#) button. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Test the remote and see if it works. If it's still having problems, let me know here!

Added a 322 reciever to my lake house to be able to watch tv in 3rd room i had 2 standard recievers before. i installed a dish pro quad lnb & reciever had a separator w/it says dp plus 123254 tuner 2...

Is TV 2 off the 322 receiver being back fed from the receiver or do you have a direct connection to the 3rd room? If it is a direct connection, you would screw the coax from the 3rd bedroom directly to the TV 2 Home Distribution channel 21-69 out port.

If you are back feeding, you need 2 diplexers that connect 1) by the receiver and 2) between the receiver and the 3rd TV. The back feeding will use the same cable coming from the dish to the receiver.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Hello! My name is Becki Barned, and I am from Dish Network customer service. The problem that you are having is simple to fix. Although your remote works for the volume, and power, it is not working for the satellite. It does need to be reprogrammed. Just take it to tv1. With your tv1 remote, press the menu button twice. Then with the tv2 non-working remote, hold down the SAT button until all the mode lights light up at the top, then release. Then press the #9 on the remote keypad, then the pound (#) button, then record (above the number 3 on the keypad) 3 times. This should resolve your issue!!! If not, you can blog back, or find us on Twitter!!!!

Sat finder detects signal on 61.5 Sat but receiver does not display or lock.

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. The 61.5 Satellite carries mostly High Definition programming. If your Satellite Dish is an older model, it is not equipped to bring that Satellite in. It is the part on the Dish called the LNBF (the eyes) that will pick up the satellites. Your receiver is a Standard Definition, you should be reading the 119 & 100 Satellites. I hope this helped but if you have additional questions, please let me know.

What is the IR code for DishTV receiver 322?

Hello! My name is Becki Barned, and I am with Dish Network Customer Service. It sounds like you just want to reprogram your remote, which is easy! There is no code to reprogram the remote. What you will need to do is pull the Smart Card out of the receiver( bottom left behind door) and that brings you to system info. Here, just hold down the SAT button on your remote, until all of the mode lights light up on the top of the remote, then release. Then press any number between 2 and 15 on the numeric keypad, press pound (#) then the record button (above the 3) and that will reprogram the remote. If this does not work, or you request further information, blog back or you can find us on Twitter!!!!

Dish dvr reception keeps cutting out

Hi mikej10x! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. You mean, intermittent signal? If that is the concern mikej10x, lets isolate the problem, 1st check the sat in 1 and sat in2 if the cable is connected tight, as well as the separator, diplexers, all device that is connected to the line of sat in, then press the power button on the front panel of the receiver for 10secs, receiver will turn off and then turn on by itself, then attention 015 will pop up on the screen, then press the menu button right away once you see the attention 015, then main menu will show on the screen and once main menu is up, press 6,1,1 on the remote control and it will go to the point dish screen, select check switch on the upper right and it will go to installation summary screen, select test on the bottom of the screen and it will run a test up to 2 of 2 or depends on the sat you have, once its done it will show the installation summary, sat input 1 & 2, port1-119-ok, port2-110-ok, once you see that all sat is ok, select done and it will go to point dish, select done again and then cancel all the way out and it will pop up attention 015, let the progress finish until it download the programming guide. the picture will show. observe if problem still exist. if the problem still exist, call 1-800-333-3474 ask for tech support and once you talk to a live agent, ask for a service call, there is a problem on you sat dish system, it could be the lnbf, switch, or the separator or cable connection. or it needs to re aligned the dish.. but before you call, check first if there is no trees or leave blocking on the dish to the southern sky, no obstruction.. please feel free to get in touch if you have any query.

Hi. I need help finding 119!

I looks like you are picking 110W with the LNB on your left if you are facing the dish.
Try to get 119W first if you connect the cable to the 119 LNB, once you find 119W that way, you will also have 110W.
Good Luck.
