The most common question we help people with is how to program their Dish network remote to also control your TV. This is a brief tutorial to help you be able to do this yourself.
The first thing you need to do is make sure you know the make, or brand name, of your TV. It is normally located on the front of the TV somewhere but if not it will be on a sticker on the back. Now refer to the table below to find the codes for your TV.

For the sake of an example we will use a LG TV in throughout this guide. Please adjust your numbers accordingly. Now that you know your code follow these instructions. Locate the clear TV button at the top of the remote. Make sure you are looking at the clear one and not the red TV button. Press and hold this button for about five seconds until the lights at the top of the remote all start to flash. Then type in the first code listed next to your TV model, in our example this is 512, then press the # key followed by the rec key. Now press the small power button on your remote this should power off the TV. If it doesn’t find the next code on the list 678 in our example, and repeat the programing instructions with this code. If your TV does turn off then turn it back on and check to see if the volume buttons work. If they don’t then go up to the next code on the list and try it. If your Power button and volume keys work then congratulations you have successfully programmed your own remote. If you have tried all the codes and still can’t get it to program then Let’s start over and try a different method.

Press and hold the clear TV button until all the lights at the top of the remote flash. Then press the channel up button once a second until your TV turns off. When it does then press # then rec. This can be very time consuming but it will eventually work.
