I'm going to apologize for my remarks. I stand by that a ViP222 has to have 6.3 UHF Pro to make TV1 work on UHF -- but I was wrong about my original remote -- it was 5.3. Dish Network claims that the 6.3 is what you should get as a "Universal" replacement to make TV1 UHF . Sorry to ruffle your feathers.
Is it possible that you can't make it work?

IR and UHF Remote Control

I found the key in the "broken" remote had been dislocated (probably by one of the kids sitting or throwing it), and the switch the key guides got moved.
I was able to get the key put back to the normal position and the remote was as good as new.
Just wanted to add a "me too" to this reply. I ordered a 6.3 as a replacement remote for my 721 and after a few days it stopped working, except for the ir functions controlling the tv itself. Changed batteries 3 times, cursed a bit, and finally re-seated the key. Luckily I did this before i bought another.

The "key" is the green or blue plastic indicator on the remote with the "1" or "2" on it. You can remove it by taking off the "battery" lid on the back of the remote and pulling the "key" off with your fingers. These keys have notches on them that set the position of the remote for TV1, TV2 and either IR or UHF.
What key are you guys talking about I think I might have the same problem I think my kid was tossing around. Maybe I can get it to work.
