I just purchased a Sony Remote Commander rm-av2500, and am having a hard time finding the remote code to operate my Dish DVR508. Does this unit not work on Dish recievers?

thanks in advance for any info:

Or, using the remote that came with your 508, hold down the "TV" button until all flash (about 3 or 4 seconds), then enter the #key twice and count the blinks from the TV light on your remote. This will give you the code the 508 remote uses for your TV. I have assumed you have the Dish 508 remote and it works with your TV.

You will see short blinks, brief pause, mor short blinks, brief pause and more short blinks. The absence of a blink means zero "0" is the number. You mau want to repeat this procedure 2 or 3 times to verify you are counting the blinks correctly.

Try that number in your new remote.
