Re: DVD Recorder with dish network

  • With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
  • For AUX mode Power Scan ONLY: press 0 for a TV, press 1 for a VCR/DVD, press 2 for any other device, then press *.
  • Press and release the Power button.
  • Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
  • Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
  • To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

  • Power Scan Tips

    • When performing the Power Scan, periodically check that the mode light is not lit when the channel up/down button is depressed. This will ensure the Power Scan is performed correctly.
    • The Power Scan will start with the last code you put in. If the last code you put in was 656 it will then go to 657 when pressing the Up button when performing a Power Scan.
    • If there is no code programmed into the remote at the time of the Power Scan then it will start with 000 regardless of the type of remote.
    • Whether the scan then proceeds ascending or descending from this number depends on whether you scan with the Up or Down buttons on the remote. For consistency, and to most rapidly go through the most common codes more quickly, you should use the up button exclusively, unless you pass a functional code by accident and wish to toggle back down to it.
    • Manually turn on the device you are scanning for before you begin the Power Scan.
    • If the scan powers the device off, but does not give full function re-enter scan mode and continue (example: there are dozens of RCA TV codes).
    • Remember not all devices are supported, and many will only give you basic functions.
    • If performing the Power Scan correctly then it should not take more than six minutes. On average you should find the correct code within two minutes.
    • The Mode button will flash rapidly when you reach the end of the codes.
    • Never replace a remote simply because it does not operate a device. UNLESS it formerly did so and now no longer works and you have tried appropriate troubleshooting. (Tip: try programming code into AUX mode as a temporary workaround should a single mode like TV or VCR fails).

    If you are performing a Power Scan in AUX mode, the steps you should follow are below:
    • Hold down the AUX button so all buttons light up
    • Enter in prefix 0 = TV, 1 = VCR , 2 = AUX device
    • Press the asterisk button "*"
    • Power then press the Up/Down like you would with a regular power scan.

    I cannot use the DVD play function with the control box I have. The control box which came with the TV is lost can I get a replacement

    We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH remote working with DVD player. In order for us to give you a specific code for your DVD player we would need to know the brand. We recommend performing a power scan; this scans the remote for a code that will work with your DVD player. Power scan instructions:

    Step 1:
    Press and hold the VCR/DVD mode button until all mode button back lights illuminate,then release.

    Step 2:
    Press and release the Power button.

    Step 3:
    Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desiredequipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will poweroff.

    Step 4:
    Press the pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, themode light flashes three times.
    After doing the power scan please remember to put the remote back into SATmode. Thanks so much for being a valued DISH Network customer!

    No puedo programar un dvd sony a mi control de dish network?

    Hola! mi nombre es Kimberly Escobar y soy representante de servicio al cliente con DISH Network. Entiendo que necesita programar el control de DISH Network con su Sony DVD. Existe un procedimiento a integrar un c?digo al control de DISH Network que permite que nuestro control pueda funcionar con su DVD, desafortunadamente no podemos prometer que funcione pero definitivamente podemos tratar. El procedimiento es el siguiente: en la parte de arriba en el control va a oprimir el bot?n de AUX hasta que los dem?s botones se iluminen en rojo, una vez se iluminen usted va a ingresar un c?digo (617, 117, o 671) nota: antes de ingresar el c?digo siempre va un numero uno primero por ejemplo (1-617 or 1-117) despu?s de ingresar el c?digo oprima el signo de numero (#), el boton AUX debe iluminarse 3 veces. Despu?s de este procedimiento puede tratar su control para ver si funciona. Si tiene preguntas adicionales o si necesita mas ayuda por favor contactenos directamente al 1800-333-DISH muchas gracias espero que esto le sirva de ayuda!

    Dish network remote to run RCA DVD player

    I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online

    Wanting to know how to save past recordings onto cd as the receiver is about to be replaced again!!

    There are devices that will convert the video/audio outputs available from the back of the Dish receivers into the format needed to input to a PC (and maybe Mac too) but beyond that, you would need either an external DVD recorder or a VCR that has lived past its time.

    Hello. My name is Jerry I have a dish net work I want to set up my dvd recorder with this remok control I have the 510, Part # 118579, 132578 remock control

    You will need a 6.4kit or 6.3kit and remote to communicate with the 510 receiver. The remote you have is a 6.0 and may work with the kit but I have never tried that application before and Dish does not recommend that remote as a replacement for the original. An 8.0 remote would work also. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.
