How can i connect two dish TV remotes to the same hopper

They are meant to be that way. If all remotes would work the same receiver you would interfere with the boxes in different rooms .

Dish Network TV1 remote doesn't work with new TV

Becki Schuurman,

Our remotes can all function independently. If the family room is TV1, then you can definitely program the remote there and have no complications with the TV2 (As long as the frequencies are different). Keep in mind our remotes are not guaranteed to work all types of equipment, but we have many steps and options to get it working.

If you have any additional questions or need any assistance, just let me know here or at!

My dish network remote for tv 1 is not working. My remote control of tv2 is controlling both my bedroom tv and living room tv. what can be the problem?

Hi this is Phillip Chang from DISH Network. Sorry to hear you have been having that remote issue, let's get that fixed. The problem may in fact be that your receiver is currently in Single Mode when you want it to be in Dual mode. Check that the amber "Mode" light on the front panel of your DISH receiver is lit on the right hand side (indicated by two overlapping squares), if it's not then we want to press the mode button, located behind the door on the right side facing the receiver. Most times this fixes it.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

I bought a new Sony ex4/40 tv and programmed my DISH Network remote control for it. Everything works fine when the all the lights are on in the room. Can't change the channels or go to the guide function...

Hello, the problem that you are having is fairly simple to solve. The tv is causing interference with the remote. It sounds like you're at TV1, and TV1 remote is an IR remote. You need to get a UHF remote, and that will stop the interference so that you can continue to enjoy your tv! You can e-mail me at if you have any questions or concerns.

I need the programming codes for a Magnovox DVD player. I have a dish network remote. I've searched dozens of sites with no results. =(


I saw your post. Are you still having problems programming your DISH remote to the Magnavox DVD player? Some of the codes are different for the different remote models. I have supply some codes for you. The codes are 829, 685, 533, 554, or 556. The instructions are also included below. I hope this helps.

Address To Other Equipment Using Code
  • Remotes: Multiple Mode Buttons (TV,VCR, AUX)
    1. Press and hold the desired Mode button until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
    2. Use the number buttons to enter the device code corresponding to the equipment. AUX Mode: Before entering the device code:
      • Press 0 for a TV
      • Press 1 for a VCR/DVD
      • Press 2 for any other device.
    3. Press the pound (#) button Note: The light will blink off after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.
    4. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

Why does the remote control change the channel in the other room when changing channels in the other room?

robbiequalls, from what it sounds like it could be the receiver is in Single Mode which means both TV's function as one. Pushing mode on the lower right side of the receiver to put it into Dual should fix the problem.

If the receiver doesn't have the mode button I would check the cabling to make sure the TV's are mirrored to eachother.

My remote is not responding to the 2nd tv satellite... but it does work for the tv

Hello walker3putt, my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. Is this remote an IR or UHF? There are ways of reprogramming the remote to the receiver. If this is and IR remote for an independent receiver then you can try pulling the smartcard out and System Information will come up on the TV. Look at the Remote Address on the TV and write down the number. Then Hold Sat until all lights on top of remote light up. Let go of the Sat button and pick a number from 1-15 and then press # and Record. Your remote address should change. If there isn't a smartcard in the receiver then try the menu button on the front of the receiver. If this is a secondary remote and is UHF you will have to take remote 2 to the room where the receiver is located and follow the same steps.

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?
