"no signal" means the unit thinks it is not getting signal from the dish. try reset by holding down the power button on the unit for up to 10 seconds. it will acquire sat and then load guide. this makes the unit "think" again. also check to be sure the cable fitting "stinger" is straight. no signal could also mean the tv or vcr is off channel or is not connected or inputted properly with the original tv remote.

Doesn't receive signal from remote control


if it works intermittenly then the remote dosent need reprogrammed. SOoooo....

line of site comes to mind. your box needs to see what your remote shoots out. sometimes something ends up in front of the reciever spot on the cable box (FYI: a flashlight at the right angle can help find the sweet spot on most devices)

maybe the dvr is going bad watch EVERYTHING you want to see one last time and have it swapped (like death, you can't take anything with you)

good luck (I hope its just a line of sight problem)

Umm my tv2 remote isn't connecting to my reciever so i tried to change the remote address and it doesn't work


Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see your TV2 remote isn't connecting toyour receiver. You will want to make sure you're at the TV1 location to programthe remote for TV2, press the Menu button 2 times and you will see the SystemInfo screen. On the bottom for the screen you will see the remote address forTV2, make sure the TV2 remote has fresh batteries inside. On the back of thereceiver their will be a Remote Antenna port and you want to make sure that ishand tight. Push and release the SAT button and press record and you should seethe address change for TV2. I will send a link to help with these steps; http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-control.

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...


Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

Cannot control it with a RF to IR emitter.


Does the DISH remote work without the emitter? If it does work, then the problem is associated with the emitter. If it doesn't work, do you have fresh batteries in the remote? If you do have fresh batteries, you may need a new remote. Please contact us if you have DISH Network equipment at 1-800-333-3474 or go to www.dishnetwork.com, then click on the Contact Us link under the Support link on the main page. I hope this helps.
