DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Remote Code Scan

Would you like to autoscan program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control your TV, VCR, receiver, or stereo?

To auto-program device codes into your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote by searching for the code, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Press and hold the mode (TV, VCR, or AUX) button until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The mode button will flash.
  3. FOR AUX MODE ONLY - Press 0 for a 2nd TV, 1 for a 2nd VCR, or 2 for a receiver, amplifier or tuner. Then press the STAR (*) button.
  4. Press POWER to put your remote into scan mode.
  5. Press the UP or DOWN ARROW repeatedly until your device turns off. Each arrow press tries the next code your remote knows for your selected device type. When your device turns off, you have found a compatible code. When the remote runs out of codes to try, the device will flash rapidly eight times.
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times as it stores the found code.
  7. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If all functions work, your remote has been successfully programmed.
  8. If the code didn't work, repeat this scanning procedure to find a more compatible code. When your device turns off during your next scan, press the arrow key again until the device turns back on to signify you have found the next compatible code.
Your device's remote control codes for your TV, VCR, or receiver are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control.

(The other way to program your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control is to look at the tables in back of the user manual, and enter the code directly.)

I hope that helps.
