Hello, Matt with DISH Network here. Make sure theremote is in satellite mode by pressing the "SAT" button one time inthe top left of the remote. If the remote is still not working, get to the system info screen by (this is at TV1) pressing the power on the front of the receiver, followed by the channel "up" button. When system info is on your screen, on the remote that is not working, pressthe "SAT" button one time, and then press the "record"button three times. Try pressing select on your remote an it ideallyshould be working. Hope this helps.

My dish network remote for tv 1 is not working. My remote control of tv2 is controlling both my bedroom tv and living room tv. what can be the problem?

Hi this is Phillip Chang from DISH Network. Sorry to hear you have been having that remote issue, let's get that fixed. The problem may in fact be that your receiver is currently in Single Mode when you want it to be in Dual mode. Check that the amber "Mode" light on the front panel of your DISH receiver is lit on the right hand side (indicated by two overlapping squares), if it's not then we want to press the mode button, located behind the door on the right side facing the receiver. Most times this fixes it.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Have a722 reciver uhf remote will not change channels onlly have picture from tv 1


Your 722 receiver may be in single mode. This is the case usually when you have the same picture on both TVs and the remote won't function. On the receiver when it's in single mode, you will have a green light for TV 1 and an amber light for mode under the single box.

To put in dual mode, open the door on the right side of the receiver (the door will open to the right). Once open, in the upper left corner of that area you have a mode button (to the right of the power button). Press the mode button and the amber light will now illuminate under the 2 boxes. The blue light for TV 2 should also illuminate indicating the receiver is now in dual mode. This will separate the 2 TVs and you can now watch different channels on both TVS, plus the remotes will now work. I hope this helps.

When i change chanel in bed room it change in living room


If the remote in your bedroom is changing your channels in your living room, 2 things could be causing this. The first if you have a dual receiver, the receiver may be in single mode. You should have a green (TV 1), amber (mode), and/or blue light (TV 2). If the blue light does not come on when you press select or Power on the TV 2 remote, you are in single mode. Next to the mode light, there should be a single and dual indication for the mode the receiver is in. If it is in single mode, simply press the mode button to change from single to dual mode.

If the receiver is not a dual receiver, then the remotes are on the same remote address and would need to be changed. I have provided a link with instructions for readdressing the remote to the receiver. This only needs to be done on 1 of the receivers and remotes.

Readdress remote to receiver, step 5:

Remote for box 1 is changing channels for remote 2 and remote 2 does not work


Are you getting the same picture on both TVs - TV 1 and TV 2? Depending on the receiver model, you have a mode button either on the front of the receiver or behind a door on the right side of the receiver. You also should have a green (TV 1), amber (mode), and blue (TV 2) lights on the receiver. If TV 2 is one, the blue light should be lit. The amber light should be lit under the dual mode. Press and release the mode button on the receiver to put the receiver in dual mode. The blue light (TV 2) should illuminate now and this will give you independent operation between the two TVs. I hope this helps.

Remote to TV 1 doesn't work - buttons light up, nothing happens

Press the number zero for 10 seconds and wait until the "remote wizard" pops up. Then just follow the instructions on how to program your remote to your receiver box.

I need to program my URC-4220 ONE FOR ALL remote to operate my new dual dishnetwork dual dvr for tv number 2. Help


With the TV 2 remote, it needs to be a UHF type remote. Since the signal goes through solid objects (walls, etc.), you should check to see if this remote has that capability. I have provided codes you can try to program the remote to the receiver. I hope this helps.
