    DishNetwork told me it was an LG problem, not the Dish remote!! LG told me the problem was with the DishNetwork remote, which you verified.

    I will look into the Harmony remote. Thank you.

That is correct and will not this mute feature work for muting the box in the majority of the cases here. Dish network has not put out a remote of of late that will work with newer TV's due to FRequency the televisions IR sensor has inside. Shoot now a days there blue tooth and not IR infrared so you might want to consider that. I would recommend a Harmony remote this will take care of all your remotes from legitech. There a little on the expensive side but they are worth it.

Thanks and hope this solution helps please do click the accept button for my efforts.

    And LG was totally on the money, I am not here to down dish it because they do not have all the codes to all tv's and the lack of tech in that area is the reasoning. The remote works fine its just not going to work with the tv. There are other options other then harmony as well if you like to look into those let me know!

Hello there!!!!! If your remote is giving you troubles, you can try a power scan, which scans through each code for the tv until you reach the correct one. Just follow the link provided below, and begin the scan. Remember when you are done programming your remote, press the SAT button on the top left of the remote. Hope this helps!!!

Need remote code for LG 32lcd350 TV for dish 3.0 remote

Hi there my name is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network Customer Support. I understand you need the codes to program a DISH Network remote model 3.0 to an LG T.V. Some of the codes we have are 678, 506, 520,123, 000, 512, and 213. To integrate the code into the remote you would need to press and hold the clear T.V button at the top until all the other top buttons light up in red, then once you see them light up you would need to enter one of your codes followed by the pound key (#) for example if you choose code 678 it would be 678#. After you press pound the T.V button will flash in red 3 times after that try the remote and make sure it functions with your T.V. I hope this is helpful to you. You can also view this link which contains information on how to program your remote to your T.V using a different procedure. If you have any additional questions or concerns please feel free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH thank you.

Programming new remote input button comes up as mute

This may be caused by the incorrect code being used for the TV. Normally we could provide the codes for the remote based on the brand of the TV we're trying to address it to. Please visit this page for all the code for the remote categories by the brand of the TV:

Although we try to provide the ability for control your TV with our remotes, we cannot guarantee that our remote will work for all TV's.

My Dish Network Remote will not allow me to...

go to page 19 of your manual (for the E-Z remote) or here ""
(if you don't have the manual)

or to here "" if you have a different remote.

basically, turn your TV on, then you press the antenna button for about 5 seconds until the TV button lights, then use the channel up/down buttons to find the code (the TV will turn off when you find it) hit the TV button again to turn it back on, then hit mute to set the code! good luck!
