VIP722K, HD DuoDVR - want to have 4 working remotes
Posted 19 August 2012 - 04:01 PM
My problem is that I want to have more than one remote for TV1 and more than one for TV2. TV1 is in the living room where the receiver is located. The kitchen is close enough that I can use the TV1 remote for the TV in the kitchen. TV2 is in my bedroom. I want to program two new remotes to have the same remote addresses as TV1 and TV2 respectfully. Doing this I can have two TV1 remotes, one for the living room and one for the kitchen and two TV2 remotes, one for my bedroom and the other for my sewing room.
I purchased the remotes from Dish Network only to discover that programming the remotes with the same remote address isn't possible. I've called Dish Network and customer service tells me that this is not possible that I should just keep the extra remotes as spares. Is there a work around to my problem?

Now, with your existing #1 remote, press Menu twice, this will bring up the system info screen and show you what the remote addresses are for your existing remotes.
On your new #1 remote hold the Sat button until all the lights light up and then release. Enter the same number as shown on the screen for the #1 remote and then press #. Do the same process for the new #2 remote and it's corresponding address. Exit the menu and you should be all set.
