Hi, I have a new Onkyo receiver and I have everything (including Dish) running thru it to the TV. I want to control my Dish receiver (VIP612 ) via my Onkyo remote but I can't find the correct Dish code to accomplish this. Help!
Well, there is a 5-digit code because I have programmed my other devices that way.
I think I am not being understood. Let me try again .... I want to use my Onkyo remote control to turn my Dish VIP612 on/off, and also to use the other Dish functions. (Oh, my Onkyo remote belongs to my Onkyo receiver; it is not a universal remote. I probably should've explained what Onkyo is--sorry.)
So, I must follow the steps from Onkyo has to how to program their remote to control other devices. They, Onkyo, have a list of 5 digit codes that are meant to be for DIsh/Echostar. However, none of the their listed codes work with my VIP612. So since my Onkyo receiver is supposed to be able to control a Dish receiver, I'm looking for the 5-digit code that will control my VIP612.
For example, I input a 5 digit code in my Onkyo remote and now I can use it (the Onkyo remote) to control my Samsung DVD player. And, I input a 5 digit code in my Onkyo remote and now I can use it (the Onkyo remote) to control my LG TV. And so on. Now, I just need my VIP612's 5 digit code.
I understand what you are saying, but it is not something supported by Dish. Dish uses a one digit code, so the other 4 would need to be from Onyko. I am familiar with Onyko, and a universal remote is one that will control multiple devices. Have you checked your Dish receiver that it is set for the code entree of 1 on the system UFO screen?
