Where can I get the green #1 UHF Pro key for the 4.0 IR/UHF PRO remote? I guess Dish saves 25 cents by not including this with the 322 receiver.:lol:
Is there a way I can set the switches manually without the key?

Thanks!

I was trying to avoid calling Dish but I might end up having to do that.
I installed a 322 receiver for my 80 year old Dad and wanted to complete the install ASAP.
There is only one TV (wall mounted flat panel plasma) in the living room. 1 Coax is run from the TV to the basement where the receiver is located. Both the Sat Dish and UHF antenna are connected to the receiver. I have the receiver’s TV2 output going to the plasma TV using TV2 UHF remote. All works as planned except the UHF antenna doesn’t pass through receiver’s TV2 output. When rain/snow fade occurs I wanted the ability to pass through ant signal to TV’s Digital tuner. It appears I’ll need to switch over to TV1 output in order to pass through the OTA signal. I'm not sure there is any other easy way to do it.

You can use your blue TV-2 remote to control TV-1.
Menu 6-1-8
Enable TV-1 UHF Pro Setup.
Your manual should be able to walk you thru the rest.
(you do still have the manual, don't you?)
I guess I'm confused. I thought I had to replace the blue key with the the green key first. So all I need to do is change the Primary Remote Address to match the Remote 2 address?

If I read your post correctly and you're only running one TV off that 322, the answer is yes.

But yeah, if you ever decide to hook up another TV, you will need another UHF remote like scoop said.

When I enabled the TV1 UHF setup screen following instructions below. The information screen still shows the Primary Remote Address (TV1) as IR (not UHF PRO/IR). Why doesn't the Primary Remote Address change to UHF PRO like it shows on page 34 of the online User guide?

a. Open the TV1 UHF Pro Setup screen by pressing MENU-6-1-8 on
the remote control.
b. Select Enable from the TV1 UHF Pro Setup screen.
c. Select System Info to open the System Information screen.

When you get to the sys. info screen, press the up arrow on your green remote.
This should highlight the box that says "rem addr" for TV-1.
Then press the 'record' button on the blue remote. This should change it from IR to UHF (and whatever remote address the blue remote is set to).
