Is this issue with an IR (infrared) remote which is generally for "tv 1," or is it a UHF remote which is used commonly used for, "TV 2?" It sounds as though there may possibly be something interfering with the remote signal & strangely around the same time everyday! IR remote signal interference can be caused by other electronics that may be running & within close proximity of your DISH Network receiver. A way to determine if this is in fact the issue would be to power everything off but leave the receiver & your TV powered on. You would then proceed by powering one component on at a time, & then test a remote function after each component has successfully been turned on. Hopefully this process will help you when trying to determine if it is in fact a component that is causing interference and as a result the remote appears to stop working around 7pm. I Hope this helps you! If this doesn't resolve the issue, please feel free to contact me directly at any time. My e-mail is, [email protected].

My receiver remote 40.0 uhf 2g quit working. can I reprogram 6.o ir/uhf pro #132578 to replace it?

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Hi I_yngbld,my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and seenwhere you're remote is having a hard time reading the IR sensor. Please makesure there is nothing like a computer tower close by or anything that couldcause interference, once the receiver is clear of any interference try theremote again.

My Dish Network remote control has quit working. I have fresh batteries and when I push on the SAT and TV buttons, they do not light up. 5.0 IR. 118575.

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service. I came across your post recently and would like to help. If you have already replaced the batteries in your remote and still the SAT and TV buttons are not lighting up it sounds like you may need a new remote. You can try holding down either the SAT or the TV button for about 10 seconds to see if this will get either of them to light up. If that does not work you will need a new remote. You can either call into DISH Network at 1-800-333-3474 or you can email me with your account information (i.e. account number or phone number and name on the account) and I would be happy to get a remote sent out to you. You can also email me if you have any further questions or concerns and I'd be happy to assist you. Thanks! :)

Magnavox blue ray dvd. model nbmgf c need remote code for dish network

Hi there! In order to be able to provide the definite codes that will allow you to program your remote to your Magnavox Blue Ray DVD player, I would need the type of remote that you have- this can be found on the back of your remote, it would be displayed as something along the lines of 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, etc. To obtain a few codes that will likely allow you to successfully program the remote I used 5.0 because it is a common remote that is used with quite a few of our DISH Network receivers. The codes you can try for your DVD player would be, 829 (most successful) if not then please try the following, 685, 533, 554, or 556. After trying those codes if your attempts are still unsuccessful you can also check the manual that came with the DVD player from the manufacturer or just contact us here at DISH Network - although I do know sometimes the remote codes can be located in the manual. Hope the codes help & work for you!

Remote does not work right at certain times of the

Hello massce. My name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. I see that you are experiencing issues with your remote during a certain time (7pm-10pm). Seems like there is something that is interfering with the signal that the remote is sending to the receiver, what could be causing this issue could be, backlighting or power save mode on LCD TV's, fluorescent lighting in room, or direct sunlight. You can go through an elimination process by turning on your TV and the DISH receiver then slowly turning on other components in the room. If there is a component in the room that makes the remote stop working that would be the cause of the issue. If the component can't be found an upgrade to UHF remote may help remedy the issue so it doesn't continue.
