Dish Network Remote Codes | Programming Your Dish Network Receiver
Are you having a hard time programming your remote control because you don’t understand the dish network remote codes? You will find this guide a tad helpful.
Let me first give you a little backgrounder. Remote controls come with different satellite units. They also come with their own special features. But they all work for the same purpose, to control your satellite unit. So though remote controls are different in many ways, there are programming steps that apply to every type.
Of all remote controls, your dish network remote control is a true stand out. Aside from the device it comes with, it can also control your television, your VCR, your DVD, and your satellite receiver. This time you don’t have to juggle four remote controls, each with numerous control buttons. Now you can say goodbye to all the annoying confusion you put up with.
Though a dish network remote control is more sophisticated, programming it is not as complex as you expect it to be. You simply have to follow the steps basic to all types of remote control.
Before you start your programming, get your dish network remote codes all ready. Look for them at the back of your unit’s user manual. Or you can look for your dish network remote codes at the DISH Network website. Go straight to the “Products” section for a quick find.
If you still can’t find your unit’s dish network remote codes, check your device’s user guide. You see, most remote controls come with general codes. You can also scan for your device. You should find a step-by-step instruction on your user guide. Once you’ve got your dish network remote codes ready, your programming should be a breeze.
Now let’s get you started. Turn on your device. Then press the corresponding button on your remote control. A flashing light serves as a signal that your device is ready. You will notice all sorts of buttons on your dish network remote control, each controlling a different device. They’re not confusing though as they are properly labeled. The button for your television set is labeled TV, VCR for your VCR, and a button labeled AUX controls whatever additional unit you add, and the SAT button controls your satellite unit.
Now let’s go back to your dish network remote codes. Enter the first number using the keypads on the remote control. Then press a button that will signal the device that you’ve completed your input. You have to press the pound button (#) if you are using a DISH Network Platinum remote control. Once your mode light starts flashing again, turn off your device by pressing on the button labeled “Power.” Then alas—you’ve programmed your device. If this does not work, work on the whole process using another number listed on your dish network remote codes.
