If this doesn't work with your new remote there is always the way that I have done it in the past and that is to use the find the code function on your new remote. It is a pain but can be done and is quite effective. Each remote is slightly different, but for the most part you would hit the set up botton and hold it in until it starts flashing then hit the T.V. Button and then hit the first code it tells you to hit and then hit the power switch if it doesn't turn off your T.V. then you hit the increment button up, (this is different for each remote so it is important to follow the instruction manual on this part) You bassically keep hitting the incriment button until your code comes up and then it will turn off your t.v.! Then your done. Note: It may take up to 400 pushes of the increment button, but it will work.
The codes that are provided to operate the tv from a Dish remote will not offer full functionality with most TV's. The menu button on the Dish remote even when able to bring up the menu screen on TV's is unable to navigate the menu screen due to the complexity of the TV's set up. The newest receiver that Dish has on the market is the 222k which is a dual tuner/two room HD receiver without DVR that has LEARNING REMOTES that might be able to accomplish the goal you are trying to obtain. I hope this answers your question and remember to keep the original TV remote in a safe place so that you can use other functions on your TV as well. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.
All you have to do is turn the TV on and turn to a channel that doesn't
prompt the V-chip password (even if it's snowy) and hold down the
volume (down -) button on the main unit while holding down the number
"0" on the remote control. It might take a few tries, and you might
need to change the TV channel for some reason but if done correctly,
either the TV will turn off, or the menu screen will pop up and ask if
you want to set the vchip password, either way you should be able to
watch your TV now! :)
