How do you set a Dish remote control to work on your tv?

Your TV brand has codes that correspond to that model. We use one of these codes to operate your TV. Without knowing your TV brand, I'm not able to provide the codes but I can provide you the instructions for programming the remote to your tV.

  • Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
    1. Turn the Television On.
    2. Press and hold the clear TV button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
    3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
    4. Press #. Note: The LED will flash three times.
    5. Test functionality with the TV.
    6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
