Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. Normally our UHF remotes will be able to convert to an IR remote if you are experiencing an issue with your TV1 remote. In order to convert your UHF remote to a IR remote you would need to take off the battery cover pull out the blue TV2 tab and turn it over to the green TV1 tab. Once you have switched the tab you will need to readdress the remote to your receiver. I will list here for you the instructions for readdressing your remote to your receiver at the end of this post. If you are looking to make your TV1 remote a UHF signal that would depend on the model of receiver you have. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com with the model of your receiver and I would be happy to give you instructions on how to convert your TV1 remote to a UHF signal. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns fell free to email me and I would be happy to help! :)

Instructions for addressing remote to receiver.

  1. Go to System Info screen. You can do this by pressing the System info button on the front on the receiver box or by pressing the power button once then the channel up button once on the front of the receiver box. You may need to open a little door on the front right side of the receiver in order to locate the buttons.
  2. Once you are in the system info screen you will see Primary remote address (TV1) and Secondary remote address (TV2).
  3. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  4. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.Change the number to something different then what is already listed in the little white square.
  5. Press the pound (#) button.
  6. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 4 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Dish Network TV1 remote doesn't work with new TV


Becki Schuurman,

Our remotes can all function independently. If the family room is TV1, then you can definitely program the remote there and have no complications with the TV2 (As long as the frequencies are different). Keep in mind our remotes are not guaranteed to work all types of equipment, but we have many steps and options to get it working.

If you have any additional questions or need any assistance, just let me know here or at thomas.faust@dish.com!

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.


smithgrvtn,

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 thomas.fuast@dishnetwork.com and I would be happy to see what else can be done!

bp22911,

It sounds like it may be an interference issue with the IR. Some LCD TV's can cause interference with an IR signal which will cause problems with the remote. Something you can try to fix is disabling the Auto Back-Lighting feature on the TV itself and see if that helps. If not, the easiest way to fix would be to make the TV1 remote UHF.

This would require a 21.0 remote as a 20.0 is IR only. Look on the back of the remote at the top to see what model you have.

With a 21.0 go to System Information. On the back of the remote inside the battery cover is a switch that says IR And UHF and make sure the green 1 is showing. Flip it to UHF and press Record 3 times. The Primary Address should now have UHF in it. Try the remote and see if it works.

If it doesn't or you continue to have problems you can post here or email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com

Hello! My name is Dan Busa with DISH Network. What you're experiencing is interference from the television set. You can access the tv menu and turn off the backlight on the tv, or order a UHF remote from us. This remote is set to a different type of frequency and should operate fine.

My remote control only works for tv on & off and volume but not to change dish channel


I experienced this problem as well. I have a dual receiver and had issues turning channels on TV2; but counld easily access the volume. After reading the Dish manual, I learned that my TV1 and TV2 remotes connect through different signals (IR = infrared for TV1; and UHF= ultra-high frequency for TV2).

Check your remote to see if there is a UHF logo at the very bottom (under the Dish Network logo). The UHF remote sends ultra-high frequency radio signals to a UHF antenna which is connected to the back panel of the receiver. Make sure that you receiver is properly dusted and then check to make certain that the UHF antenna located on the back of the receiver is positioned straight-up. When the antenna is not correctly positioned it can cause problems with your remote signals.

Remote does not work at all


Phil with DISH Network here. Ideally we would want to knowwhat model remote we are having issues with, but here are some steps thatshould help.

Step 1:
Check if the issue is with a specific button. If its just one button that isnot working we need to have the remote replaced.

Step 2:
Check that the correct remote is being used for the TV in this room. Use remotekey (Green "1" or Blue "2 UHF") to confirm itis being used in the correct room. TV1 is located in the same room as your DISHreceiver.

Step 3:
If UHF, check that your UHF remote antenna is securely connected to the "RemoteAntenna" port on the back of your receiver and that the antenna isupright.

Step 4:
If issue is with the TV2 remote, bring your TV2 remote with you to TV1. Access "SystemInfo" at TV1, using the remote that is NOT functioning, pressand release the "SAT" button then press and release the RECORDbutton on remote control.

Step 5:
If the batteries in the remote have not been replaced in the past 60 days,replace the batteries. If the remote doesn't light up after replacingbatteries, have the remote replaced.

Step 6:
Unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then repeat step 4.

Step 7:
If the remote is still not working the issue may be caused by IR interference.Find interference source (back lighting or power save mode on LCD TV's,fluorescent lighting in room, or direct sunlight). Getting rid of theinterference should fix it.

After completing all these steps if you're remote is not working give us a callfor additional troubleshooting at 1-800-333-DISH (3474).

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.
