Dish dvr uhf pro remote

The sat light button won't light up all the others do ( tv vcr aux ) how do i get that one back so i can control the sat

    My remote is doing the exact same thing. All buttons (TV, VCR, and AUX) will light up. However, the SAT does not. This is a HUGE problem because it's for a dual tuner receiver and the remote is for the second TV. I have a universal that will work the #1 TV, but won't on the second. Now, we can't watch TV downstairs because the remote won't turn the satellite on!

I had the same problem. Here is a temp fix. The remote consists of three pieces: The top, the bottom (holds the circuit board and batteries), and the flexible rubbery button piece.

Pry apart the remote with a butter knife and remove the rubbery piece and hold it in your hand. Look at the four top buttons: SAT - TV - VCR - AUX. Flip the rubbery piece over and you will notice two little black dots on the back of those four buttons. The problem you are having is that the dots aren't conducting anymore for the SAT button. Now get the bottom piece and look at the circuit board to see where the black dots for the SAT button line up. Then simply position the two black dots from the TV or AUX buttons over the SAT circuit board location until the LED for the SAT lights up. Click the remote back together, paying attention to lining up the rubbery piece. (The tabs go in the slots).

Now the remote should be in SAT mode. Until somebody pushes AUX again on the remote, that is.

Had the same problem, followed the manual, didn't work. Then I did the opposite.
The UHF Pro remote will not work if the channel that the remote is on changes.
To reset, through the fron panel on the receiver access the system info under setup.
This will give you the remote's channel.
Press and hold the SAT butting till all four lights then enter the same number as the channel it showed.
Press pound sign, then record, then select.
Should work then.

Just fix mine Same problem as above. Took apart remote and cleaned the circuit board with an eraser where the buttons make contact. You can also clean the buttons with a alcohol swab or a pencil eraser. Not to hard, don't want to wear them off.

I realize this sounds elementary, replace the batteries in the remote. I felt I had these same problems with my 6.3 IR/UHF DISH Remote for TV 2 on the UHF side of things and thought I'd tried everything. Guess I missed the most basic. A good sign that the batteries are the problem IMO would be that the SAT light when you press the button isn't brightly lit. Mine would light up but was dim. Good luck.

Posted on Dec 24, 2009

My problem is similar except, the LED comes on, I just can't control the sat. however, I can control everything else. All of the buttons light up though so, I don't understand why I can not power on or off the sat or DVR nor change the channel. It makes no sense to me.

Thanks I'll try it, also I found on e-bay the same remotes for under $ 10.00 Thanks again

DISH VIP612 Program AUX Remote Code 2


DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Program AUX Remote Code

7c06801.jpg

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control your receiver, tuner, stereo, second TV or second VCR using your remote's AUX mode? (Instructions to setup a primary TV or a VCR are a little different, but can be found here.)

e818a57.jpg

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote, follow these steps to enter the remote control codes to control a device with the AUX mode:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Find the brand name of the device you would like to control in the control code tables on page 112 of the Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 User Manual.
  3. Press and hold the AUX mode button until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The AUX mode button will flash.
  4. Press 0 for a TV, 1 for a VCR, or 2 for a receiver, amplifier or tuner.
  5. Enter one of the three-digit codes from the tables in the manual.
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times.
  7. Press POWER to turn off the device. If the device does not turn off, skip to step 9.
  8. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If the code works, stop here.
  9. If the code didn't work, repeat steps 3 through 7 with the next device code from the tables in the manual.
Your device control codes for your amplifier or other AUX device are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612.

Now you probably want to set your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote up so that it always controls the volume of your stereo, rather than of your TV, regardless of whether it is in SAT, TV, VCR or AUX mode. Help for this remote control programming can be found here.

(Help for programming a TV or VCR using the TV or VCR mode buttons can be found here.)

I hope that helps.

Remote control interferes with second TV


si24

It is possible that the 2 remotes are on the same remote address. This generally is not possible if one remote is IR and the other is UHF but with some receivers you can have an UHF remote for you TV 1. To resolve this issue you would need to readdress on of the remotes to a different remote address. I have provided instructions on how to readdress the remote. I hope this helps.

  • Remote: All Other Remotes
    1. Go to System Info screen
    2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
    3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
    4. Press the pound (#) button
    5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Would you like to program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume of your receiver, tuner, or stereo instead of your TV's volume?

e818a57.jpg


The first step in using the Universal Remote Control that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control the volume level of your receiver, tuner, or stereo is to program the remote to control your audio device using the AUX mode button.

Once your remote controls your audio device in AUX mode, you probably want to continue to control the volume of your stereo even if the remote is in SAT, TV or VCR mode.

To setup your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the AUX button until all the mode buttons are lit, and then let it go.
  2. Press the POUND (#) button.
  3. Press the PLUS side of the VOLUME button.
  4. Press 0.
  5. Press the POUND (#) button. The AUX button flashes three times to tell you the programming is complete.
  6. Confirm the VOLUME buttons are operating the tuner/amplifier's volume control by pressing SAT or TV, and then adjusting the volume. Your tuner/amplifier's volume should change rather than your TV's volume.

Your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote is now setup to control the volume of your stereo regardless of which mode it is in

I hope that helps.
