    A couple of times recently my remote has been changing channels all by its self and I was wondering what could cause it because I think its been somebody in my neighborhood changing it to Univision on occassion that is hispanic and some other cases the hispanic channels as well that I dont get along with other channels on occassion it has happened to my reciever and the 4th reciever. The first two are fine.

    yes it is a neighbor. You need to change your remote address.

    get the system info screen up on the one you want to change

    -on remote, press and hold satellite button until all 4 light up and the sat button blinks
    -hit number for new code
    -hit # button...remote will blink 3 times
    -hit record button to tell receiver this is the new address

    These are UHF (RF remotes) right ?

    Read your manual on changing your Dish Remote address.

    Or the short and mostly correct procedure (I may miss a few details) -

    Put your receiver on the System Info screen.
    Press and hold the SAT button on the remote until it starts to flash.
    enter a 2 digit number from 01-16, then press the "#" key, then the Record button. You should see the Remote address on the screen change to what you entered, and you should have exclusive control of your receiver,and the SAT button will flash 3 times that it took.
