I had the same issue with the 55LD520 and my Dish 722 receiver.
Check out this link for some suggestions:

Putting black tape over the receiver IR sensor seems to be working for me.

Hi Robert, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. It sounds like your remote is experiencing IR(Infrared) interference from your LG TV. You can resolve this issue by converting your TV1 remote to UHF(Ultra High Frequency) instead of IR. In order to do this you will need a UHF remote, the 20.0 remote is only an IR remote. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dish.com with your account number or phone number on the account so that I can look into getting a UHF remote sent out. Thank you.

Hey Brandon Kinsley,

It does sound like there is an interference issue with the remote control. Make sure there are no sources of heat or light near the receiver, and that it has a clear line of sight. Other possibilities for interference could be equipment or some LCD TV's have been known to cause interference.

If you continue experiencing any difficulties let me know here and I would be happy to try other steps with you, or see about getting the right remote out so you can make the TV1 a UHF signal to bypass that interference.

Is this a new remote or the existing one? I have provided instructions on how to program the remote to your TV and to readdress the remote to your receiver. Select the model of the receiver you have, click on the link and the just follow the directions. The bottom portion of the page has links for TV codes to program the remote to your TV. If this doesn't work, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

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!!!

My dish dvr remote only works on satellite from zero inches away from reciever. The remote works on the tv from 20 feet away. Have tried wiggling the antenna, etc. Any other ideas?


Check your batteries.. Trust me on this it happens lol..Also do you have anything on top of the tv like a VCR or DVD player? That can cause that also. If your able too control the reciver with the remote than it could be a number of these things. Just check ubstructions anything that can be blocking it. Some newer model tv's have a light censor that causes the remo too stop working as well. If its a newer model like an HD tv this could be your issue as well
