Is there any way to program a Samsung television remote control to operate the dish network?

Some universal remotes can be programmed to work on the DISH receiver but you won't be able to use your Samsung TV remote to operate your DISH receiver. You can program your DISH remote to work your Samsung TV. I have provided instructions on how to program your DISH remote to your TV. I have also provide TV codes.

TV codes: 738, 680, 516, 679, 666, 573, 665, 667, 669, and 653

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.

Possibly, depends on the remote
