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.

Hi tesmathwi572 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network andI was going over your post and with our DISH remotes that go with the receiverwill give full functionality to change the channels as well as the DVR andaccess the Menu. Buy getting another remote from a store may not program to thereceiver to change the channels, if I can check your account information suchas account number or phone number so I can see about getting the remote thatgoes with that system. I will leave you my e-mail so you can contact medirectly. email@example.com
You can go to TV 1 to make sure TV 2 is suppose to be set to channel 60. Did you run the auto setup on your TV? If you have already run the auto setup on your TV, unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. This will make the receiver reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Then see if you get a picture on your TV 2. If not, the last thing you can try is changing the channel from 60 to 73 through the receiver.
With your DISH remote at TV 1, press the Menu button - Main Menu will display on the TV 1. Then press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 5 (Modulator Setup). On the Modulator Setup screen, move over to TV 2 Out and select Cable, then press select on the remote. This will automatically change the channel from 60 to 73. Highlight Done on the right and press select. Cancel out of each screen till you get back to the TV screen. Go to TV 2 and put the TV on channel 73. You should get a picture. I hope this helps.
You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.
If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
Press SYS INFO.
Press Record multiple times on your remote.
Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.
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.
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.
