    I can't seem to get my dish remote to find a code for this new TV. I have to use the Dish remote for changing channels and the Emerson remote to do everything else. I wondered if anyone had the remote code for this tv???
    I've tried all the remote codes in the dish network manual, and I've done a power scan with no luck finding the code. Is it possible that this TV CANNOT be controlled by the dish remote??? Would appreciate any input....thanks...:confused:

    Yes, very possible. I cannot get the remote for 625/622/722 to program to any Emerson LCD tv. Don't feel all alone, I can't get the Dish remote to program to my Viewsonic TV.

    The end of that problem is near, however. With the new 222k and 722k, they will come with IR learning remotes, and you will be able to program any remote to them. Also they will be equipped with what E* calls "Wizard" and you will be able to store all of your timers into the remote, and if you have to get a replacement receiver, you will be simply able to put all of your timers back into the receiver. (Timers, not recordings.:) )

    And those remotes will be available next month to DISH customers. The price will be $20.

    Emerson is one of many brand names owned by Funai. You might try the remote codes for some of the other Funai brands.

    From Wiki:

    My Sylvania TV, also made by Funai, will not learn the code for the TV. Very frustrating considering it is the TV in the bedroom.

    So with the new remote we will be forced to upgrage? They won't send one free if we are having issues with learning codes?

    My Emerson is also in the bedroom, and its all kinds of fun fumbling around with 2 remotes....one for changing channels....and the other for everything else. Dish won't send anything for free...you can be sure of that.....:nono2:

    I know exactly where you are coming from there! I guess $20 isn't too bad but it is the principal. Guess the issue is with Funai instead of Dish.

    Its not really an issue with either company, its just impossible to have every code for every tv. Hence the beauty of learning remotes.

    I guess it kind of ticks me off that dishnetwork advertises their remote to be a consolidator of all other remotes, but in fact that isn't really true if it doesn't work with certain TVs. At least they could say it consolidates MOST other systems, instead of misleading the consumer to believe that it works for ALL other systems:( ....

    I don't think I've ever seen anything that said it would work with all. The 21.0 IR/UHF Pro remote is available now though, which should work with just about anything as it is a learning remote.

    Does one just call Dish for this remote? Anyone know the cost?

    Dish network is telling me this remote is not available yet. I have called twice to inuqire about the remote. Can anyone confirm it is actually available? If so I will call back and ask them again to check on the remote.

    Reps don't seen to have the same info as we have here. I was told the 21.0 has the same features as my 6.3. and it's not a true learning remote.

    I was also told the 21.0 MAY NOT work with my 722.

    They are available. The 20.0 is for your TV1 and 21.0 is for your TV2. They come in black colors and have a lot more buttons on them than your old silver TV1 and TV2 remotes. You may find them a bit confusing. It seems like Dish tried to put too many functions on the remote. And the button layout is even worse. :icon_cool:icon_cool:icon_cool

    Must be a general problem with Dish remotes and Emerson TVs. I put a 20" CRT Emerson in the kitchen a few years ago. I tried all the codes listed for Emerson in the receiver manual. Then I went through the code search routine. Finally I contacted Dish tech support. Never could find a code that made the Dish remote fully functional for the TV. Finally settled for a code that turns it on and off and controls volume. But if I forget and hit Mute the TV goes into some kind of service mode and locks up. I have to manually turn it off and back on to restore it.

    Whoever told you that was wrong. I have my 21.0 and it works fine with the 722, and it is a learning remote. Not sure why you were told otherwise.

    I'm guessing you are using code 632. If so, try codes 569 and 556, I believe one of them will solve that issue for you (556 if I recall correctly) if you are using the 632 code. I've seen that a lot before.

    One reason that a lot of emersons seem to not work is because emerson uses so many different codes. We have 37 codes on file that are known to work with some Emerson TV's and still a lot of them don't work, or only work partially.
