    If you'll explain why RF link working fine at 100' but pairing only at 5'.

    DISH wants to make sure the remote is paired to the right receiver.

    The odds of two receivers with ~100ft of a remote both being on the System Info screen at the same time are not high ... but having the receiver look for a very strong signal from the remote makes it more likely the remote will pair with a close receiver than a far one.

    Most pairing is done at the receiver anyways, with one using the receiver front panel to get to the System Info menu then pressing the SAT button (or Pair button) on the remote.

    My dog got a hold of my remote. A piece came off, which i think is a key. no lights come on on the remote when i push a button. The receiver said the battery life is good on it. I was wondering if I have to have that piece in the remote for it to work. If so then I'm screwed. The dog did a number on the piece. Just wondering. p.s. There's probably no way of getting just that piece is there? Been looking online, no luck so far.

    What kind of piece is it? Where on the remote is it located?

    If it's the piece that has a 1, or 2 on it, flat, half round...you can get them from Dish. I got a whole kit of them from them a while back.

    There are different ones that are used depending on whather it's remote 1, or two, and a given version of the remote.

    Hopefully in this forum it would be a Hopper/Joey remote. No numbers. The DISH logo on the bottom is removable but not service affecting.

    We just got the Hopper and I’m trying to get the remote to work with the DVD player. I can turn on and play the DVD with the remote but I can’t seem to get the remote to change TV inputs so it is on the correct input for the DVD. The remote will bring up the input screen but when I push the up button to change inputs it changes the channel on the TV to channel 2. I want to use only one remote and not 3.

    Try hitting the input buttons multiple times to cycle through the inputs. Alternatively, try "page up" and "page down". Good luck.

    Push the TV mode button then push the input button to cycle through the inputs.

    Hi -
    I have read all 5 pages on this thread, but can't find how to pair to a joey, a 21.0 pro remote (was used on a 722) set to IR and
    number 1 set on the front. I have change the front panel on the remote to a '2', still doesn't try to pair. Held
    within a foot of the joey. Pressed the sat button twice. pressed the menu button twice.
    What do I need to do?

    Thanks!
    Doug

    IR remotes DO NOT pair.
    You need to go to remote manager on the Joey and turn on the IR remote function. Makes sure the address of the 21.0 remote is set to 1

    Sorry to be quoting such an old post but I'm wondering if Dish ever got around to supporting different IR code sets on the Hopper or Joey. I have a Hopper and Joey being installed tomorrow and plan to put them in the same equipment rack where I currently have my 722 and 622. The old receivers could be selected from any TV in the house and were separately addressable by using different IR code sets on each. It sounds like my upgrade plan might hit a snag if both the Hopper and Joey will be responding to the same infrared codes.

    The 40.0 remotes for the Hopper and Joey use UHF to communicate not IR. IR is used for the TV, DVD etc.

    No, they still only will work with IR address #1.

    Can someone tell me the proper way to open the case on a 40.0 remote? I have a dead one and I want to poke around in it.
