IMPROVING RECEIVER CONTROL
These instructions help you improve your remote control settings to best operate your
satellite receiver. Use the following instructions to make your remote control operate more
efficiently with your receiver.
Changing the Address for Remote Control 2
Because UHF signals travel long distances and go through walls, a neighbor’s remote
may control your receiver by mistake. To keep this from happening, you can change the
remote address. You can also use these instructions to change the address on Remote
Control 1.
1 Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen
displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.
Write down the Secondary Remote Address:
If changing the address for Remote Control 1, write down
the Primary Remote Address:
2 Press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode
buttons light up, and then let go of SAT.
3 Use the NUMBER PAD to enter any number between 1 and 16, but not the one you wrote
in step 1.
4 Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.
Write down the number you entered:
5 Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information
screen is the same as the one you entered in step 3. If it isn't, the remote cannot control
the receiver.
6 Press SELECT to close the System Information screen.

Improving Receiver Control
Adjusting the Remote Antenna
Be sure to set the remote control antenna (back of the receiver) straight up so you can use
the remote control from as far away as possible. Don't let the antenna touch anything.
If your UHF Pro Remote Control isn't working very well from far away, you
may be experiencing interference from objects near your receiver. To
improve your remote control's range, try the following:
– Place the receiver higher than all of the other equipment in your
entertainment center.
– Provide room above the receiver so that the antenna can be installed
straight up. If this is not possible, tilt the UHF antenna at about a 30°
angle.
– Place the UHF antenna outside the entertainment center by using a
coaxial cable to connect the antenna to the receiver.
– Try moving the receiver to other locations.
– Move any nearby over-the-air antennas away from the UHF remote
antenna. Do not place an over-the-air antenna on top of your receiver.
– Install a UHF attenuator. See Installing a UHF Attenuator in the following
section for details.
Changing the UHF Frequency Using the A/B Switch
Your remote has a switch to change the UHF frequency that your remote control uses. It
comes preset to the A position but you can change the setting to the B position to lessen
the likelihood of any other UHF remote interfering with yours.
2 Use a small screw driver or a paper clip to carefully change the setting.

Installing a UHF Attenuator
Unwanted UHF signals may interfere with signals from the remote control to the receiver.
To prevent such interference, you can install a 10 dB attenuator (available from many
consumer electronics parts stores). Adding this attenuator will help keep out stray UHF
signals, but it also cut down how far away you can use the remote control.
1 Remove the UHF antenna from the UHF Remote
Antenna input on the receiver back panel.
2 Attach a 10 dB attenuator to the UHF Remote
Antenna input.
3 Attach the UHF antenna to the attenuator.
CONTROLLING OTHER COMPONENTS
To use the remote to control other devices (such as a TV, VCR, DVD player, tuner,
amplifier, or DISH Network satellite receiver), you must first program it to control these
other devices. You can do this by either following the instructions in Setting Up Using
Device Code Tables on page 63, or the Setting Up Using Device Codes Scan procedure
described on page 64.

You can program your remote control in Limited Mode to keep from accidentally changing
the channel on your TV or VCR. When you use the remote to control your TV in Limited
Mode, you will only be able to use TV POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME. Also, when you use
the remote to control your VCR in Limited Mode, you will only be able to use POWER and
the VCR function buttons.
Turning Limited Mode On and Off
The section Setting Up Using Device Code Tables has a step that tells the remote control
to go into Limited Mode. You can use this feature to limit the functions of a TV or VCR you
control with the remote in TV, VCR, or AUX mode. Here’s a simple way to turn Limited
Mode on and off anytime:
1 Press and hold the mode button (for example, TV) until all of the mode buttons light.
Release the mode button.

described below, the remote control sends commands to your TV to change channels or
video inputs to get back to watching satellite programming. This procedure works only if
you have accidentally changed the TV channel or video input. It does not recover lost
satellite signal (See Troubleshooting on page 104 for information on solving problems).
Note: The remote must be programmed to control the TV (and VCR, if applicable) for
RECOVER to work as described.
Note: RECOVER will first try to tune your TV to channel 3, then channel 4, and then other
video inputs with each press of RECOVER. You may need to press RECOVER up to 30
times to recover your satellite TV video. If RECOVER is programmed to a specific channel
(see page 69), RECOVER will tune the TV to the specific channel (for example, channel

Programming the Recover Button for Remote Control 2
When your Remote Control 2 is shipped from the factory, RECOVER is set up to restore
satellite TV viewing by tuning your TV (or VCR) to channel 3, 4, and other inputs.
However, to use RECOVER with your remote TV (or VCR), you need to program
RECOVER with the specific channel (for example, channel 60) that you use to watch TV2
programming. The following instructions describe how to program RECOVER to tune your
remote TV (or VCR) back to a selected channel.
Using the Recover Button
The following setup is required to use RECOVER:
•
The remote control must be set up to control the TV and, if installed, the VCR.
•
If a VCR is installed, make sure it is connected as shown on page 94.
•
On a remote TV, RECOVER must be programmed to tune your remote TV to the specific channel to receive TV2 programming (for example, channel 60), using the
instructions on page 69.
Note: Press any remote control button other than RECOVER to end this procedure.
Note: If RECOVER is not programmed to a specific channel, RECOVER will first try to
tune your TV to channel 3, then channel 4, and then other video inputs with each press of
RECOVER. You may need to press RECOVER up to 30 times to recover your satellite TV
video. If RECOVER is programmed to a specific channel (see page 69), RECOVER will
tune the TV to the specific channel (for example, channel 60).

SENDING DISCRETE POWER ON AND OFF
Installers use Remote control discrete power ON and power OFF IR commands when
programming macro commands into universal remotes. Using an ON-only or OFF-only
command is more effective than a toggle ON/OFF command when trying to make sure the
satellite receiver is reliably in one state or the other. To use discrete power commands,
complete the following:

Tips
TIPS
•
If using a specific channel for TV2 (for example, channel 60), TV2’s remote control
must be programmed with a TV2 channel/input before you can use RECOVER.
•
Place the channel sticker on the remote TV and write down the channel you use to
watch DISH Network programming. The stickers are inside the front cover of this
guide.
•
If you don’t want to accidentally change channels on your TV or VCR, try
programming the remote control in Limited Mode as described on page 62.
•
Make sure you have a UHF antenna connected so you can use Remote Control 2.
See page 15 for instructions.
QUESTIONS
•
•
My remote doesn’t control my receiver or other components. What should I do?
–
Put the remote control is in the correct mode (page 62).
–
Check the batteries (page 15).
–
Check the remote control address (pages 59 and 65).
–
Check the UHF antenna (page 15).
–
Adjust the UHF antenna (page 60).
Why does my receiver change channels or display menus at random? Your
neighbor may have their remote control set on the same address. Change the
address on your remote control and receiver as described on page 58. If that doesn’t
help, you may have to install a UHF attenuator as described on page 61.
