Re: new dvr receiver, remote will not recognize

Just looked at it, you need to find the dvr device in the list of devices in the software. Go to Customize Buttons, and at the bottom right there is a Learn Command button you need to click.

Hope this helps!

Re: new dvr receiver, remote will not recognize

If you're using the default controls that came with the preset settings for the dvr dish network you selected you need to go in and edit them.

From what I remember, the 520 can go in and learn buttons from other remotes. So you need to go in and look for the setting that allows you to put the controller that came with the dish network up to the 520 and teach it the channel up and down feature.
Basically, it picks up the signal from the remote that came with the dvr and copies it making it the exact same as the original remote that came with the dvr.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dish IR. Not sure of the model number. Uses 4 AAA batts. The problem I have is the every function seems to work fine except for the volume control. In order to change volume I have to use the TV...

It is possible that those buttons have failed, but a bit more likely the remote lost the codes for the TV itself... since almost everything the remote controls... is on the DVR. I apologize if I am guessing wrong in assuming other "TV" buttons (like INPUT) don't function either.

To re-program your remote to recognize your TV (like when the tech first set up the system) choose from the following receiver types to find the correct remote control TV codes for your Zenith.

Remote TV Codes for 722/622/612/411/222/211 Receivers
Remote TV Codes for 625/522/512/510/508/501 Receivers
Remote TV Codes for 811/381/322/311/301 Receivers

SAT light stays lit but no batts, still nothing. reset DVR, still nothing


If the Sat button stays lite with no function to control the receiver, either the Sat button is stuck or the remote has gone bad, especially if you already changed the batteries. You can call 1-800-333-3474, speak with Tech Support and if needed, they can send a new remote. I hope this helps.

After programming my NEW Harmony One Logitech remote I can't get it to change channels on the Dish HDTV DVR along with a bunch of other problems.

To control a Dish Network PVR/Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to the default Remote Address (1).

To reset your Dish Network PVR/Satellite to the default Remote Address:

1. Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.
2. Using the original Dish Network remote, press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release SAT.
3. Using the NUMBER PAD, press the 1 button
4. Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.
5. Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information screen is 1.
6. Press the SELECT button on the front panel to close the System Information screen.
7. Your Harmony remote should now control your Dish Network PVR/Satellite box

NOTE: Dish Network PVR/Satellite receivers sometimes have two tuners, allowing them to be used in more than one room on different TVs. Harmony remotes can only control a Dish Network receiver's main tuner while still in the same room with direct line of sight to the device.

What other issues are you having with the remote?

I got Two TV's My TV Connected to remote 1 in IR mode. After trying to record some thing using dvr the remote dies on satellite cannot change channel... Tech team tries every thing send new remote and...


From what you have written, when you try to record on your DVR the remote stops working, is that correct? How long has this been happening? Have you received a new remote? If yes and it is still happening, you are probably getting IR interference from some source in that room. It could be from a florescent lamp, another player, or even the TV. Is the receiver in a open space or in an enclosed area? The IR sensor has to have a direct line of sight to work properly. You may also check on the receiver if anything is obstructing the sensors, maybe dust. I hope this helps.

Remote will turn on TV and Receiver, but won't show the program guide, or change channels


Your remote needs to be readdressed to the receiver if you are not able to change channels or bring up any of the receiver menus. Have you already replaced the batteries with new batteries? I have provided a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote to your receiver. Select the type receiver you have, which will open a PDF document with the instructions on how to readdress the remote to the receiver. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

Dish Network DVR not totally controlled from PC (Win Media Ctr)

I do not know if you have received an answer to your post by other means but I know of no way that that is possible with the current configuration of the receivers Dish has out presently. You have already opted out of the slingbox option so that leaves me with one last suggestion which is that Dish is coming out with a new receiver SOON that will have the slingbox incorporated into it so that you connect it to your ethernet connection and you are in business. I will send you all info on the new receiver if you like.

Toshiba Regza not recognized by remote

The only solution you may have is to buy a high end universal remote that will control the Dish receiver as well as your peripherals. Dish also has a new receiver- 222k- that offers learning remotes and expanded product codes to support more tv's.The 222k is a dual tuner two room HD non DVR receiver. I hope this assists you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.
