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.
It sounds like you have a pretty new TV. This means that there should be multiple AV jacks in the back for setting up your many components. Plug in the receiver into #1, the Wii into #2, and any other equipment you may have (DVD, VCR etc.) in the same way. You should then use the original TV remote to switch between Video 1, 2, 3 and so one for each compnent you want to use. The button on the remote will be labeled video, tv/video, input select, or input, something like that.
press and hold the tv botton on you dish remote till all the lights light up release the tv botton it should stay flashing then hit the larger of the two red power bottons next you will need to hit the up arrow one at a time till the tv shuts off when the tv shuts off you then hit the # botton at the bottom you wiil see the tv botton flash your code will then be saved
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 Dishnetwork.com 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.
