Got replacement 622, Now another problem
Posted 21 April 2006 - 11:46 AM
I got a replacement 622 yesterday and i got it all hooked up, call CSR, got it activated fine but now i have problem with this receiver too. The main tv (tuner 1) seems to work just fine. No freezing problems or anything. On the 2nd tv (tuner 2) the remote control will not change the channel, or anything else for that matter. It seems maybe the remote is broken but i can turn off the tv just fine. It's the same remote from the 1st receiver i got (they never replaced the remotes, just the receiver) and it worked just fine with that 1st receiver. The channel that is showing on the screen is the one that says "Congratulations on your DISH 1000 xxxxxxx" . I can change the receiver to single-mode and the PIP works just fine (from the main tv's remote (#1). I can change channels and everything!
Any idea what this maybe?? I've done the hard-reboot, check switch, blah blah already. The little remote control antenna is hooked up fine. I even took the #2 remote to the receiver and tried to change the channel from close range and nothing still happens.
thanks for your time,

I'm thinking that all your symptoms agree with your "old" remote is set to a Remote Address other than the one the new receiver is set by default.

To set it. press the SYSTEM INFO button in front of the unit and then Press and hold the satellite button on the remote control number 2 wait until it blinks and then press the record button, you will notice that the address for the remote tv2 will change.
Now try using it.
