I hope that your remote is working now, but if it is not, or you have any other issues in the future, here are some steps to help out. The link below will walk you through programming both your remote to the volume and the receiver. Sometimes the remote will not work certain functions if the batteries are starting to ware out, also if there is anything blocking the dish, the remote doesn't work as well. So you will want to make sure that there is nothing in front of the receiver, such as glass, and that your batteries are less than 60 days old.


Steps 1-5 are for the receiver, and 6 on are for the tv! I hope this helps!!! http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup

I got my dish network to turn off the tv and adjust volume but remote wont turn on the tv


Hi there!! This is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network, just ran across your post and wanted to provide you with some helpful information to help get your problem resolved. If your remote control is functioning as far as turning the T.V off and the volume, one of the things you may want to check is that the power button is working, you can verify this by trying to turn on and off the receiver. If it works for the receiver you will need to try to address the remote to your T.V again using different codes. To address a remote to the T.V we use certain codes that integrate to the remote allowing it to function with the T.V. unfortunately we cannot promise the remote will function the T.V completely. You can find more codes at this link here http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup. If you need any additional help please free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH. Hope this is helpful to you.

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.

DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Limited Mode

What is DISH Solo DVR VIP 612 Limited Mode?

You can program your remote control in Limited Mode to keep from accidentally changing the channel on your TV or VCR and causing a snowy or blue screen.

  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for TV mode, you will only be able to use POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME functions for your TV.
  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for VCR mode, you will only be able to use POWER and the VCR functions for your VCR.
Note: Limited Mode is not used with amplifiers (AUX mode).

I hope that helps.

My remote control only works for tv on & off and volume but not to change dish channel


I experienced this problem as well. I have a dual receiver and had issues turning channels on TV2; but counld easily access the volume. After reading the Dish manual, I learned that my TV1 and TV2 remotes connect through different signals (IR = infrared for TV1; and UHF= ultra-high frequency for TV2).

Check your remote to see if there is a UHF logo at the very bottom (under the Dish Network logo). The UHF remote sends ultra-high frequency radio signals to a UHF antenna which is connected to the back panel of the receiver. Make sure that you receiver is properly dusted and then check to make certain that the UHF antenna located on the back of the receiver is positioned straight-up. When the antenna is not correctly positioned it can cause problems with your remote signals.

Hi there! You may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. Just follow these quick steps to do so:

1. Access System Information screen and note the Remote Address
2. Hold SAT on the non-working remote until all lights on top turn on.
3. Enter a number between 1-15 and press #
4. Press record 3 times and the number should change.
