SOURCE: our dish network remote is

Due to the various remote types used by Dish for their different receiver types they may or may not have another receiver w/ a remote that would be compatible with your system. It also is a possibility that there is another remote that will operate your receiver and TV as well. you can check on to find compatibility or you can provide me with the make and model of your tv and i will research it for you and let you know my results.

What you have right now is a half code situation with the remote. Their is no solution to this than the above or buying a universal remote capable of communicating with your receiver.

Hope this assists you and let me know if I can be of anymore help in the future.

SOURCE: remote code for dish network remote to control olevia tvs

Please follow the steps below to program your remote control to equipment other then your DISH receiver:
Note: If you start this procedure and at any time and do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over again. Use the TV button for your TV, the VCR button for your VCR or DVD player. These Mode buttons are located at the top of your remote control.
1. With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. 
2. Press the numbers 5-0-0 on the remote control. 
3. Press the Pound (#) button on the remote. 
4. Press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. 
5. Press and release the Power button on the remote control. 
6. Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off. 
7. Press the Pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. 
8. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment. 
We cannot guarantee our remotes will work all other devices. If this does not correct the issue, unfortunately our remote will not work for that device. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

SOURCE: Dish 20.0 IR Remote works for awhile then it

I MAY have a solution!! We too have the VIP722 Dish Network receiver. Ours is the "K" model. I called the place where we purchased the TV and they said that the "brightness" on the TV may need to be turned down. He walked me through this, and it worked. The remote WORKS now!! Our TV is a 40" Sony Bravia that we purchased a couple of months ago. Evidently at night, the TV was so bright in the room, it interfered with the Infared Remote control. By turning down "off" brightness detector on the TV, the IR remote was able to send the signal to the receiver. Our TV is on a cabinet and the receiver is directly underneath on a shelf. I hope this solves your problem and anyone else's that may have this problem with the remote.

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.

If you have replaced batteries and had a new remote sent out to you, either the Vizio TV is emitting an IR signal that is interfering with the remote IR signal to the receiver. To test if the TV is emitting interference, is it possible for you to turn the receiver in a direction away from the TV and see if the remote will work? If it does work after moving the receiver, that indicates interference from the TV. If it doesn't change the situation, you might check for other interference from other components (florescent lights, etc.). I hope this helps.

Hello, the remote can sometimes have problems. If you haven't changed the batteries in 60 days, try different batteries, or even try a different brand. Sometimes also, with new remotes, the remotes can be faulty upon arrival. If changing the batteries doesn't help, then at that point, we would probably want to replace the remote again. It has been some time since you posted, but if you have yet to get this resolved, I would be more than happy to take a look into this for you. You can reach me at

Hello, the problem that you are having is fairly simple to solve. The tv is causing interference with the remote. It sounds like you're at TV1, and TV1 remote is an IR remote. You need to get a UHF remote, and that will stop the interference so that you can continue to enjoy your tv! You can e-mail me at if you have any questions or concerns.

We apologize for the issues you have been experiencing, we would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Network remote working. The first thing we want to check is if the issue isaffecting multiple buttons on the remote. If you are having the issue withspecific buttons then the remote needs to be replaced, give us a call at1-800-333-DISH (3474). Check if you are using the correct remote for thecorrect room, there may be a number on the bottom of the remote that tells youwhich room the remote should be in. If UHF, check that your UHF remote antennais securely connected to the "Remote Antenna" port on the backof your receiver and that the antenna is upright. At this point we want tore-address your remote, if issue is with the TV2 remote, bring your TV2 remotewith you to TV1. Access "System Info" at TV1. Using theremote that is NOT functioning, press and release the "SAT" buttonthen press and release the RECORD button on remote control. If thebatteries in the remote have not been replaced in the past 60 days, replace thebatteries. Reset the receiver by unplugging it for 10 seconds then plug it backin then re-address the remote again. If the remote is still not working at thispoint then it may be an interference issue. If you are having issues with aninfrared remote, find interference source (backlighting or power save mode onLCD TV's, fluorescent lighting in room, or direct sunlight), eliminate, orconvert remote to UHF. If you are having issues with an UHF remote, findinterference source (component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) near DISH receiver),adjust UHF antenna, or distance UHF antenna from receiver using coaxcable/barrel connector. If the remote is still not working after all thesesteps we need to have your remote replaced.

We really hope all these steps resolve your remote issue. Thank you for being avalued DISH Network customer!

Hello! Daniel Busa with Dish Network. That would be a case of remote interference. You'll need a model 6.3 or 6.4 remote. You can set it to a uhf frequency instead of an ir that will correct the issue.

EchoStar 5.3IR from Dish Network not responding to Samsung tv

It seems the new, larger tvs these days put out too much light and it interferres with the remote signal. Simply put a post-it note or tape a piece of paper over the lights on the receiver and you have an affordable and instant fix. This isn't a good looking fix and I would be upset if the set were in a living room. Luckily ours is in the family room downstairs.

In order to program my "dish network" remote control , I need the remote control code for "Haier" model HL 15 B-A.

The reprograming of my dish network remote to my Haier tv was accomplished by the following steps: 1. Press the clear tv button and hold down until all 4 buttons are lit. Release the button. 2. Press and release the large red power button. 3. Press the UP arrow button about once a second until the tv turns off. 4. As soon as the tv turns off, press the pound (#) button at the bottom of the remote.

The unit will now be reprogramed.
