It is possible to set up a DISH Network remote to control a number of additional entertainment center devices, including a television set, DVD players and VCRs. Each unit has a unique code indexed by its manufacturer and matched to the exact DISH Network remote model a user owns. That number is three or four digits long. DISH Network allows users to program these codes into its various remotes in one of three ways.
Program by Code
Point the remote at the device to be programmed and hold down the proper device button until all the device buttons light up.
Enter the remote programming code or codes provided by DISH Network on its website followed by the pound (<"#">) button.
Press the power button to see if the device turns on. If not, return to Step 1 and try out a different code.
Program by Scan
Point the remote at the device to be programmed and hold it down until all device buttons light up.
Press the power button on the remote and then alternate pressing the up and down arrow buttons on the remote until the device powers off.
Press the pound (<"#">) button followed by the power button on the remote. If the scan worked, the device should turn back on.
Program by Menu
Press the Menu button to access the DISH Network on-screen menu. From there, select Settings followed by Remote Control to access the Remote Manager sub-menu.
