If the TV 2 remote does not remove the screen saver when you press "Select", the remote probably needs to be readdressed to the receiver. You want to take the TV 2 remote to TV 1 location. I have provided a link with the full instructions on how to readdress the remote. I hope this helps.

Dish remote 2 changes channels on both tvs and dish remote 1 changes channels on both tvs


Is the receiver in dual mode? Go to the receiver, open the door, and hit the mode key. If both TVs are still showing the same thing, then the issue is not the mode.

Go to TV 2 (the one without the receiver) and make sure the TV is tuned to channel 60 or 73. If it is still showing the same thing, go to TV1 (the one with the receiver) and hit Menu, system setup, Installation, modulation (menu 6-1-5). make sure the modulation for tv2 matches which channel you put your tv2 on.

Still showing the same thing? check the back of the receiver, the RCA cables (red/white/yellow) are plugged into the TV1 ports not the TV2 ports.

Showing different things but the remote still changes channels on both tvs? Go to TV1, hit menu twice, near the bottom there are two boxes each with a number. This is the address for each remote (tv1 and tv2). On the TV2 remote hold sat until it stays lit, choose a number different than on the screen, touch pound (#), the sat light blinks three times, hit record, the number on the screen should change to match the one you typed in.

Still being silly? Call a priest, you have a poltergeist!

You will want to make sure you're at the TV1 location to programthe remote for TV2, press the Menu button 2 times and you will see the SystemInfo screen. On the bottom for the screen you will see the remote address forTV2, make sure the TV2 remote has fresh batteries inside. On the back of thereceiver their will be a Remote Antenna port and you want to make sure that ishand tight. Push and release the SAT button and press record and you should seethe address change for TV2. I will send a link to help with these steps; http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-control.

Can you buy a universal remote for TV 2 to change the channels? My remote for SAT DISH stopped working the lights on the top come on but I can not change the channel, view the guide etc...


The remote is an Ultra High Frequency remote and most universals are IR MAKING THEM INCOMPATIBLE.

Take the TV2 remote into the TV1 location and using the TV1 remote press MENU-MENU. You will now have a screen up that has remote addresses at the bottom. Take the TV2 REMOTE AND PRESS AND HOLD the SAT button on the upper left of the remote until all lights on top illuminate and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1-16 that is not either number on the screen currently and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times now press the record button until the remote addy for tv2 changes to the new number.

You can cancel out of all of these screens with the TV1 remote. Now go to TV2 see if it works. If not try at the receiver. If it works there have Dish send you a new remote.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

On the TV 2 remote that is associated to turn off the TV2 with this receiver press and hold the SAT button on the top left of the remote until all the buttons across the top illuminate.

My IR remote no longer works in another room


Dawn,
If you want a remote that works via IR to control the satellite receiver you will need a IR only. The IR/UHF type only transmits signals to the receiver by UHF and the IR portion only operates the peripherals in the room such as the TV and VCR. There are some remotes that come with a kit that can change the remote to work as an IR only. I believe you have a TV2 remote and want it to work further away from the receiver particularly the room the TV is in. If this is the case you may have have to change the remote address of the new remote to match that of the old. You can do this by taking the number one remote and pressing menu-menu. Now take the new remote and press and hold the SAT button in the upper left of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Now key in the two digit number on the tv screen at remote address for tv2. Then press the pound sign and the SAT button will flash three times then press the record button and the TV2 icon should flash. Now you can cancell out of the screen on tv one and try the remote at the TV2 location. I believe this will fix your issue if not let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hi,my brand new UHF remote wont operate the #2 tv??


Go to the tv 1 location with your TV2 remote. Turn TV1 on and using TV1's remote press menu-menu. You will be at the System Info Screen. Take TV2 REMOTE and press and hold the SAT button on the top left until all buttons on the top light up. Release the SAT button. Now key in a two digit number from 1to 16 and press the # key. The SAT button will flash three times. Now press the record button until the remote address for TV2 changes to the number you chose. When accomplished exit out of the screen with th TV1 remote and you should now be able to control TV 2. As a precaution ensure the remote antenna is on the back of the receiver. If you still have difficulty it may be required to move the remote antenna closer to TV2. I hope this answers your question. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can of further assistance.
