    Guys,

    I know this is old news... but I'm just now trying to configure a 6.4 UHF remote to work with my VIP622. Due to a remodel we have relocated our dish box to an adjacent closet and desperately need the use of UHF. Unfortunately our new remotes have arrived (from SolidSignal) and we're struggling to configure these remotes to control TV1 in UHF mode. I've googled to my fingers are bleeding, but can't seem to "nail" the right directions.

    Can someone here help?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi Harsh,

    We're using the VIP622 in single mode only.

    I'm pretty sure I have the UHF Pro #1 installed - Here's a pic:

    Hmm... Anyone know where I can obtain the Green #1 key with the black stripe?

    No... my experience asking them for anything is worse than a root canal. If I have to I will...

    In single mode, you can also use a #2 UHF Pro chip. My ViP622 came with one installed in the TV2 remote.

    In single mode the #1 and 2 remote will operate the receiver because it is only outputting 1 tuner.

    I use the #2 remote on my 622 and 722 both in single mode all the time. In single mode remotes have nothing to do with tuners

    Hence my recommendation for this typically free alternative.
