20 Most Recent RCA DISH Network(r) 311 Satellite System Questions & Answers

Hello, I am a Dish Network technician. The most likely reason you're having this issue is may be some type of switch between your closet and your TV jack, that you're bypassing when you install the 50' lead. Your best bet will be to schedule a technician to come for a visit, we have the tools and training needed to find and eliminate your issues with ease. Most likely, this is something that the average person won't be able to tackle.

Lonnie, You have a simple problem,the 119 satellite is lower in the sky than the 119 if you make sure the pole you are mounted on is straight and plum ,then simply raise the dish a few elevation degrees and turn the dish to the left.Your dish is aimed low and to the right.

How many coax cables are you using from your dish, 1 or 2? Do you have a switch between the dish and receivers? I am assuming your have a 1000.2 dish since you say you have the 129, 119, 110. On the LNB you have 4 coax ports. Facing the LNB, the port on the far left is for 119, the next is 110, then 129, and that last on the far right is for an additional dish. If you want to get 119 and 110, just use the 2 ports on the left. Once connected, run your check switch. I hope this helps.

It would be our pleasure in helping you get those missing channels back. The first thing we want to do is press guide button twice to display "Favorites List" option. Press guide button to rotate through selections until "All Sub" is selected. By selecting All Subs the programming guide will only display the channels that you are subscribed to. If you are still not getting those missing channels we need to check some things on our side; please give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) or use or online chat too here: http://goo.gl/QR0vg.

We hope this helps. Thanks for choosing DISH Network!

Hello!!! Remotes can be tricky sometimes!!! Try a power scan. It scans the TV for the right code, instead of inputting codes.

1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Hope this helps!!

We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Network remote to control your RCA TV. We're going to start by pressing and holding the TV button located on the top of your remote until all mode button back lights come on, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter the codes for your RCA TV here are some of the codes we currently have: 503, 627, 633, 725, and 505. Press the pound (#) button. To check that the code works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV. Remember that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is the case, try the other codes listed for your RCA TV until you find one that is compatible with it.

We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

1. TV on.
2. On your Dish Network remote PRESS AND HOLD the small clear tv button until all buttons across the top of the remote light up and release.The only button lit should be the clear tv button that will be flashing.
3. Press the small red tv button next to the power button and release it. This should leave the clear tv button that was flashing lit solid.
4. Now slowly depress the channel up key until the tv turns off.Each time the up channel button is depressed the clear tv button will cease being lit and once it is released the clear tv button should remain solid. If the clear tv button flashes multiple times it usually means there is no known code for your tv, there may be another code that will work so continue on.
5. Once you are successful in getting the TV turned off press the channel down button once and then the channel up button. This should turn the TV back on.
6.Press the # key button on the remote. The clear tv button should flash three times then press the record button and try the volume up/down and the small red tv button. You should be able to turn volume up and down and turn tv on /off. If only one of these function it means that you have only found a half code and need to try the process again. Not all TV's have full codes or any codes at all especially combo units.

The process is not too difficult, and shouldn't take more than 3 hours, which includes running all of the needed wires. I could detail the process here, but I think this how-to is a very good guide, complete with pictures. If this answer helps, please rate my post accordingly!

Hi myname is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and whenyou move the receiver you always want to make sure all connections are in thesame place. The SAT feed coming into the house will connect to the SatelliteIn, and your TV connects to the CH4 CH3 on the back of the receiver. I willsend a link that will help with these steps. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/bbs-screen
