How do you get your dish network remote to turn satellite on and off?

When you press the large red button at the top of the remote, this button turns the satellite receiver off/on. If it doesn't work for you, try changing the batteries. If it still doesn't work, you may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided the instructions below:

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (press Menu 2 times on remote or pressing System Info button on 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.
    Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
