Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

Remote does not work for first 5mins when tv is turned on

I have a LG TV and a dish network VIP 722. When the system is first turned on the IR on the box does not seam to be receiving for the first 5 mins or so. I can control the TV fine duing this time but not dish. If i leave the box and just turn on the tv when cold it still does it. I have also bought a new harmony remote and it does the same thing. Is it something to do with TV light, or a problem with the box.

Please could someone help me

There are a lot of possible culprits that may be causing this i.e . light source between TV and remote usage location, sunlight infiltrating into the pathway etc. However the easiest solution may be to have a technician come out and troubleshoot the issue. You may opt for a IR/UHF converter which is easy to connect and allows you more versatility with the remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

The option to change the default Recording TV is not available for clicking. It is grayed out. I am trying to turn the default to record on TV1 not TV2.


C Dunn,

I can definitely assist with this. You'll want to access the Record Plus screen from the menu to make that change.

To get there go Menu > Preferences > Record Plus. Once there you can choose a default TV to record, or disable the feature so it will record on the tuner you are using, first. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Robert, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. It sounds like your remote is experiencing IR(Infrared) interference from your LG TV. You can resolve this issue by converting your TV1 remote to UHF(Ultra High Frequency) instead of IR. In order to do this you will need a UHF remote, the 20.0 remote is only an IR remote. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dish.com with your account number or phone number on the account so that I can look into getting a UHF remote sent out. Thank you.

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

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:http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup

Hi, I bought a lg plasma tv model 55LD520, and now my dish network remote won't work unless I'm literally 2 inches from the reciever. What can I do? Please help


I had the same issue with the 55LD520 and my Dish 722 receiver.
Check out this link for some suggestions:

Putting black tape over the receiver IR sensor seems to be working for me.

Dish network remote stopped working for on and off and volume


First before trying to repair the remote lets try to just reprogram it. The easiest way to do this is to do a search. 1st Turn the tv on, then on the remote press and hold the tv button until it flashes. Next press the tv power button. Next press the up arrow button slowly until the tv turns off. Then hit the # key. Now if you pressed the up arrow to many times and the tv doesn't respond to the remote just start the process over, except using the up arrow use the down. You may have to push the up arrow button many times before it finds the code. The batteries usually last quite a while since there are 4 of them. If this doesn't work call 1-800-333-dish they will either send out a tech or just mail you a new one. If you have the user guide for the 722 the instructions to do this are on page 82.

Program sony remote to operate dish vip722


The Sony RM-YD029 Remote control will work with the Dish Network VIP722 DVR HD Satellite Receiver, but the Dish Network VIP722's Primary remote address must be set to 1.

The procedure below will allow Sony RM-YD029 remote control to operate Dish VIP722.

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the primary remote address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates you the channel your remote control one is configured. The Sony RM-YD029 will work when this primary remote address number (in the white box) is set to 1.

If the Primary Remote Address of your VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your Sony remote control per the instructions in the manual or Sony's web site. My 722 works with Sony IR code - 01775.

If you have a dish network system as listed in post a DVR 625 this is NOT possible, it will only work with VIP series Dish Network recivers. and they must be used on teh same model reciever such as Vip 722, tranfer to EXT HD then Watch on another 722!
