Ways To Program Remote to your TV

It is quite often a thing that some of the remote keys are not working with your TV or maybe completely not working. This does not mean that the remote is useless, it only needs some sort of programming.

The dish remotes are basically of two types-

  • The remotes having model number- 40.0, 50.0, 52.0, and 54.0. They are known as network hopper model. Programming with these models is much simpler than the programming of older ones.

In new remote models, the menu is replaced by home icon key with more cool features of recording audio for the searching channel.

Before moving forward make sure your dish remote is properly updated with new batteries. Sometimes it is just the battery issue that your remote is not working. Make sure your remote address is unique and no one else is using your address, if you share same address then you may face the problem of frequently receiving some sorts of a message that “Your channel will be shut down within 30 minutes”, or sometimes automatically switching new channel without using the remote. To avoid these messages, avoid sharing of your TV address.
