Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

1 Answer

Same problem as above EXCEPT remote #2 works fine when TV1 receiver is off. Dish technician says my HD TV is interfearing with remote #2 , and I need a "pigtail" to move my remote antenna for TV2 away from my reciever. She said I could get the pigtail from Radio Shack, but I've been to 3 with no help. Can I make my own with RG6 or some other cable and fittings? Thanks, Bill

Dvr 625 from dish

To whom it may concern,
As a technician whom has been in the field for nearly a decade, my suggestion is to contact Dish Network customer service and set up a technician visit.. I know that there are far too many variables that could influence my answer and how I structure it, likely leading to more issues.

Best of wishes,

I get the dish network screen on # 2 tv and have lost the remote I can't get # 1 tv remote to change the channel. Is there any way to program the remote for tv 1 to change the channel on tv 2.


It is possible to get your TV1 remote to work TV2, but it would have to be a model 6.0/6.3/6.4. If it is not one of those models you would need to have a remote ordered and sent out; then it would work. If your remote is one of the above models; I have included the steps to get that done.

Changing Remote from UHF-to-IR and IR-to-UHF:

1.) Verify correct model of remote and it is IR/UHF compatible. Remove tab from bottom of remote. For TV1: Green Tab with Green 1 in it. For TV2: Blue tab with 2 and black UHF in it.

2.) Push correct tab into remote, and go to your main TV.

3.) Access System Information either with a remote, Sys Info button on front of receiver, or powering it off and pressing the up arrow.

4.) Press and hold the gray SAT button until all buttons on top light up. Release and while the light is blinking enter a number between 1-15 and press Pound(#)

5.) Press Record 3 times and check to see if the address changed to the number you chose. Verify remote works.

If you have any other questions you can let me know here; or at and I would be happy to see what else can be done!

Hd-Fox T2 Displays InSt how do I get to Installation Wizard

Hi geroncolm my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network. The dual HD receivers allow for TV1 to show in standard and high definition. On the TV2 it will show in SD format only, even if the TV is a HDTV. We do have System Wizard and you will need to be in front of TV1 and hold down the 0 button on the remote for 10 seconds, it will enter the system wizard. Once you enter System Wizard it will allow you to reformat the remote.

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.

Hello! My name is Becki Barned, and I am from Dish Network customer service. The problem that you are having is simple to fix. Although your remote works for the volume, and power, it is not working for the satellite. It does need to be reprogrammed. Just take it to tv1. With your tv1 remote, press the menu button twice. Then with the tv2 non-working remote, hold down the SAT button until all the mode lights light up at the top, then release. Then press the #9 on the remote keypad, then the pound (#) button, then record (above the number 3 on the keypad) 3 times. This should resolve your issue!!! If not, you can blog back, or find us on Twitter!!!!

Problem jumps back and froth from tv1 to tv2

One of the inputs on the back of the 322 box is bad. usaly 1 wire runs from the dish into a seperator that splits the signal into 2 at the back of the box. you will need to call dish and have a new 322 sent out. 1-888-333-3474
