Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Magnavox Model 42 MF130A Plasa Tv and have it hooked to a Dish Network Model 625 DVR. I would like to have the Model 6.0 IR/UHF Echo Star remote that came with the DVR control the TV for on and off volume etc. The same as the one that came with the TV. I have tryed scaning until my fingers are numb. Can anyone tell me how to find the correct code to control this Magnavox TV with a Echo Star model 6.0 remote??????

    Well this help is referancing an All in One 7800 and how to program it ?????? I actually asked for help programing a Echo Star remote 6.0 remote so these instructions have NOTHING to do with this remote and probably work great if you have a AIO 7800 ????? So I can only assume you never actually read my request for help and this is just a computer generated response to any cry for help on remotes..................????

    Irish,

    I do appreacite you trying to help but unless you actually read the request we could never comunicate......................... I asked for help with a model 6.0 REMOTE and you are asking me if I actually looked at hifi -remote site under URC-7800 ?????

    Since a Echo Star remote doesnt even have a "setup" button on it like the URC7800 how could this possibily be relevate????

    I have also tryed punching the button HUNDREDS of times to see if the code was in the remote before I ever contacted you as I was hoping you had a referance that I dont as to the actual code that Magnavox used on this TV or that you would look up the way to transfer the info end to end like you suggested for the 7800..............................

    I have tryed all of those David and some of them will do interesting things like bring on the mute or even the source instead of turning on or off the TV like it should ????? Very strange deal ................. Magnavox has NOTHING on this code setup and basically BLEW ME OFF when I contacted them.

    I contacted Echo Star and they told me that my TV is probably weird as far as codes go?????

    I dont think any of them want to know about this problem???

You can find the remote control codes for different brands of devices from
http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml#tv

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see youhave DISH Network HD the hdmi does not work. Depending on what the TV is set to;480, 480i, 720, 1080i will depend on what you have your receiver set to. Afteryou check your TV settings press the buttons of Menu-6-8 and it will take youto HDTV Setup. Make sure your TV settings match your DISH Network HD settings;if you have anymore questions please e-mail me at Michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.

4-digit codes:

One of these codes should work.

Good luck!

HDTV Converter hookup with sat. and antenna


Hi there Phil...... this switch from analog to digital has lots of folks scratching their heads. Fortunately I have some great news for you. The signal coming from the Dish network does not need a converter as it is already digital.

if you using the component input on both tvs I will check the settings on the receivers, "HD setup", the difference is because the settings are set one on 480i and the other on 1080i

Hooking up a tv


Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok
1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr
2. then other scart from vcr into tv
3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr.
you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr.
If the channels change then your on the right av channel.
Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through.
You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead.
say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems.
Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok

Lost my picture when went to pip


Check your PIP source. I couldnt figure out my LCD pip, and why it wasnt working either until I was able to switch the source. It was automatically using a source that didnt have anything hooked up to, I had to switch mine in order for it to work. Try that and see if that might be the case. let me know. thanks!
