Mirvin930,

Any time a different remote is controlling a different receiver, changing one of the remote addresses on should remedy the situation. I have provided instructions on changing the remote address.

Remote will not respond. New batteries installed. I can change channels at receiver, but the remote will not do anything, even though all the led's on the remote will show lite when pushed. 6.4 ir/uhf...


Is the remote for TV 1 or TV 2. If it is for TV 2, the blue tab with the number 2 should already be on the bottom of the remote. If it's for TV 1, you need to remove the blue tab from the bottom of the remote and flip the tab over (should be a green tab with only a green 1 on it). Once you change the tab, see if you can change channels. If you can't, follow the instructions below.

At your TV 1 location on your receiver, press the System Info button to display the System Info on your TV. At the bottom of the screen, you should see Primary and Secondary Remote Addresses. Make a note of the remote addresses. With the new remote, press the record button. If this is the TV 2 remote (blue tab on the bottom), the secondary number may change; if TV 1 remote (green tab on the bottom), the primary address should change. Exit from all the menus on the TV screen till you are back to your TV picture - then try the remote.

If the above steps do not work, try the instructions below to manually program the remote to the receiver.
  • Remote to the receiver:
    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.

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.

I have 4 TVs using 2 receivers. TV 1 and 2 use receiver VIP722K. TV 3 and 4 used receiver 322G. I bought a new Vizio tv to replace TV 4. (Note: TV 2 is also a Vizio) I tried to set up the new Vizio...


Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. Icame across your question and wanted to see if I could help. It sounds like youmay need to either readdress your TV4 remote to your 322 DISH receiver or youcould possibly have receivers for TV2 and TV4 mixed up. Since your TV4 has "Pressselect to watch TV" on the screen you can check both of your receivers andwhich ever receiver has the TV2 blue light off is the receiver this TV runs offof. If this is not the case and you are positive that the TV4 does run off the322 you will want to take the remote to the receiver box location in order toreaddress it. I will list here for you the instructions for readdressing theremote to the receiver box. I hope you find all this information useful and ifyou have any other questions or this does not fix the issue you are experiencingfeel free to email me at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com. Thanks and have a greatday!
Instructions for readdressing your remote to your DISH receiver
  1. Go to System Info screen. You can do this by pressing the power button once then the channel up button once on the front of the receiver box.
  2. Once you are in the system info screen you will see primary remote address and secondary remote address.
  3. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  4. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.Change the number to something different then what is already listed in the little white square for secondary remote address.
  5. Press the pound (#) button
  6. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 4 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Trouble with remote on second TV, not responding from back of house


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. The TV2 remote (UHF) can work up to 200 feet from the receiver but can also get interference issues that cause it to not work consistently. One of the things that I recommend is to readdress the remote to the receiver and possible installing a pigtail to the remote antenna on the back of the receiver. I have this on one of my receivers and have never had an issue since. To troubleshoot try these steps:

Step 1: Verify correct Remote being used
Check that the remote matches the TV. Use remote key or sticker on remote to confirm. TV1 is located in the same room as your DISH receiver.
Step 2: Check that UHF Remote Antenna is Secure/Upright
If UHF, check that your UHF remote antenna is securely connected to the "Remote Antenna" port on the back of your receiver and that the antenna is upright.
Step 3: Address Remote
To SAT: Access "System Info" - press and release the "SAT" button then press the RECORD button on remote control. If unable to access System Info using the receiver, use "Video Frozen/Locked Up".
To TV/DVD/AUX: Check for current remote codes and address remote.
Step 4: Check that Remote Control Batteries are Fresh
Check that the you have recently replaced the batteries. If not, install new batteries.
Step 5: Reset Receiver
If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
Please note: It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed.

If you are still having an issue, to install a pigtail you will need a piece of Coax cable, approx. 3 feet long and a barrel connector. Remove the remote antenna from the back of the receiver, attach the coax cable to the receiver. At the other end of the coax cable insert the barrel connector and add the remote antenna. Then drape the coax cable behind and towards where the TV2 is located. It takes the remote antenna away from where all the electronics are, which are major causes of UHF interference. I hope this helps resolve your issue.

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!

Remote (2) works to tun the TV on and off.... But nothing is working in the SAT mode. Remote (1) is working fine.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. I am sorry you are having a problem with your TV2 remote. It sounds like it needs to be readdressed to the Dish receiver box. Take the remote to TV1, using TV1 remote, press the "Menu" button twice. TV screen should show "System Info", towards the bottom of the screen it will say "Primary Remote Address" and "Secondary Remote Address". Take TV2 remote, press and release the "SAT" button, on the top left corner of remote. The press the "Record" button 3 times. The number in the white box, next to "Secondary Remote Address" should have changed, if not unplug receiver from power for 10 seconds and then follow the instructions again. This should resolve your issue but if you are still having a problem, you may need to contact Tech Support directly. I hope this helps.

I just programmed my dish #2 remote control to a tv. The remote is not working. I cannot access the guide menu "etc". What do I need to do? This is a second tv and the remote worked just fine before....


It sounds like the remote would need to be programmed to the receiver itself. It may have lost it's programming when the TV code was put in.

To program remote to Satellite:
1. Access System Information screen.
2. Note the # on the bottom where it was Secondary Remote Address.
3. Hold SAT until all buttons on top of the remote light up.
4. Let go and while it's blinking enter a number between 1-15 and press #
5. Press record 3 times and test remote.

Light in the set box is not changing red light is flickering. Green light is not coming inspite of changing the batteries in the remote control. I am having Dish TV in my house.


Hi, this is Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. It sounds like you are experiencing a power issue with your Dish network VIP622 DVR. You can try resetting the Receiver box by unplugging it for 10 seconds (if it is plugged into a surge protector, for the purpose of troubleshooting, plug directly into a wall outlet). Wait for receiver to reacquire satellite signal. If you are still having an issue, you will need to contact Dish Network because the receiver box will probably need to be replaced. I hope this information helps you.

My remote is not responding to the 2nd tv satellite... but it does work for the tv


Hello walker3putt, my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. Is this remote an IR or UHF? There are ways of reprogramming the remote to the receiver. If this is and IR remote for an independent receiver then you can try pulling the smartcard out and System Information will come up on the TV. Look at the Remote Address on the TV and write down the number. Then Hold Sat until all lights on top of remote light up. Let go of the Sat button and pick a number from 1-15 and then press # and Record. Your remote address should change. If there isn't a smartcard in the receiver then try the menu button on the front of the receiver. If this is a secondary remote and is UHF you will have to take remote 2 to the room where the receiver is located and follow the same steps.

Cannot connect second tv to Dish


Gregg,

If this is a replacement TV I would say you are probably better off with the universal remote if you are not able to bring up the menu using the front buttons on the set. Call me if you like and I will see what solution we can arrive at based on your receiver type and TV.
