Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

Echostar IR remote (Dish)

The remote does not operate the devices. It has new batteries and when you press a button the buttons DO light up (so the remote works) it just appears that the signal does not reach the t.v. or dish box.

    RCA TV Combo remote code

  • Anonymous Apr 21, 2009

    My IR remote doesn't work with the receiver.  I could set it up to work with my TV so I know the battery is fine.  I got a brand new remote from dish network and set it up.  Didn't work.  I got another receiver from dish network and it still doesn't work. My receiver is on my TV stand and I have a clear view on it.  TV2's (UHF) remote works flawlessly so only the IR is having problem. I am lost.

I have an 20.0 IR EchoStar Technologies L.L.C 155681. For some reason the input button is not working. Whenever I press the TV button and press input it doesn't work. Does anyone know what the problem is?

Our remotes may not carry all of the normal functions your factory remote would. The remote you have is capable of learning additional functions, the link below will open a tutorial guide for this:

Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH.

If you are trying to get the remote programmed to the receiver you can remove the smartcard from the receiver and that will prompt the system info screen. This will allow you to program the remote to the receiver.

If you need the process for programming the remote, here it is:
  1. Go to System Info screen (in this case -- obtain by removing smartcard from receiver)
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
Hope this helps!

I suspect that the remote address got changed somehow. Pree and hold the sat button on the top left hand side of the remote until all buttons light up across the top and release. Now key in 0-1 on the numeric keypad and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times. After it the SAT button is done flashing press the small red dot record button. Now try to operate the remote. You should be able to control the system now. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
