311 remote control code

01-18-2010, 11:11 AM
I just bought a new TV and want to use the TV remote for the 311 Sat. box. I have looked thru the Dish manual and can not find the code to use to program the TV remote. Any help would be appreciated.

You don't use the codes in the Dish instructions to program another manufacturer's remote. You use the codes found in the instruction manual for your TV.

TV remotes are much to limited to control the Dish boxes, use the Dish remote to control both the TV and the Dish receiver.

Thanks Jim 5506 - you are exactly right - the TV remote is very limited and now I looked at it in detail, not worth the effort. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
