20/21 Remote

If you have programmed your DISH Network remote to control another device (TV, VCR or DVD player, etc) but not all of the remote functions work properly, you can teach the DISH Network remote to learn specific commands

1.Ensure the DISH Network remote is programmed to operate the DISH Receiver
 

2.Place both the DISH Network remote and the original equipment’s remote control on a flat, stable surface
 

3.Press and hold the mode button for your equipment



 
All of the mode buttons should light up, and then your selected mode button should blink


 
4.Select the type of learning you wish to perform

  • Hybrid Mode: Use this option to add functionality to any missing keys when the remote code for the equipment has already been found
  • Normal Mode: Use this option to assign functionality to keys when the remote code for the equipment has not already been found. This will erase all previous commands.

    • Learning Hybrid Mode: Continue to Step 5
    • Learning Normal Mode: Skip to Step 6

5.Press RECALL


 

6.Press and hold RECORD


 

7.Point the front of the original remote to face the small square (IR window) on the front left-hand side of the DISH Network remote. Remotes must be within 4 inches of each other.

If the mode light blinks three times or remains lit, the DISH Network remote did not learn the command.
