The remote is an Ultra High Frequency remote and most universals are IR MAKING THEM INCOMPATIBLE.

Take the TV2 remote into the TV1 location and using the TV1 remote press MENU-MENU. You will now have a screen up that has remote addresses at the bottom. Take the TV2 REMOTE AND PRESS AND HOLD the SAT button on the upper left of the remote until all lights on top illuminate and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1-16 that is not either number on the screen currently and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times now press the record button until the remote addy for tv2 changes to the new number.

You can cancel out of all of these screens with the TV1 remote. Now go to TV2 see if it works. If not try at the receiver. If it works there have Dish send you a new remote.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

On my dish remote for tv 2 sat button stopped working and wont light up. all other buttons work. i have changed batteries but nothing changed. How do i fix this because i dont wan to waste money on an


Kevin rico,

I can definitely check this out with you. Does the SAT button light up when you press any buttons at all? If you press SAT, can you operate the receiver?

If neither of those work then the remote most likely needs to be replaced. If you would like to try that option, just send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and i'll assist you further!

How to program remote to dish? 4.4 IR/UHF PRO


Your question is not clear as to whether you want to program the remote to your TV or the DISH receiver. Here are steps for both if this has not been resolved already!


DISH RECEIVER::
1. Go to the room where the receiver is located. With the remote for THAT room press menu twice. (This will be the remote with the Green 1 on the bottom.)
2. Press and release the SAT button on the top left of the remote
3. Press and release the black and red record button 3 times
4. Look that the number next to remote address (secondary Remote address) has changed.
5. If not, start again.


TV::
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Do i need to program my remote to change channels on the dish network


Hey knapshak, Tommy Faust with DISH Network here. It would need to be programmed to the receiver in order to change programming. You can do that by following the steps below.

1. Access System Information screen from your main TV.
2. Note the number on the bottom of screen next to Remote Address.
3. Hold SAT until all buttons on top light up then release.
4. While SAT is blinking enter a number between 1-15 and press # (Different from number listed)
5. Press record 3 times and the number should change, try the remote and see if you can change channels.

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

2nd television remote control is programed and it work for turning on and off but the other butttons don't work, like the sat button or arrows to pick different channels doesn't work. I appricate it thank...


Have you tried pressing SAT and trying the remote again? If not then you may need to readdress the remote.

To do so:
1. Access System Information from primary TV.
2. Note the number on bottom by Second Remote Adress
3. Hold SAT until all lights on top of the remote light up.
4. Let go and it will be blinking, enter a number between 1-15 and press #
5. Press record 3 times and the number found in step 2 should change to the one you selected.

My dish network remote stop working


It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux mode. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! -Kirstie DISH Network
